SWEET QUINOA PUDDING
2 c. cooked quinoa
1 c. apple juice concentrate
1/2 c. raisins
1 c. chopped water chestnuts
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Pinch of ground cinnamon
1 kiwi fruit for garnish
In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa, apple juice concentrate, raisins, water chestnuts, vanilla, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Cover pan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Slice kiwi fruit. Divide pudding among 5 dessert dishes and top with kiwi fruit slices. Makes 5 servings.
Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa) has the texture of whole cereal grains but, like buckwheat, is actually the fruit of an annual herb. It’s available in most large health food stores and in some supermarkets.
To prepare 2 cups of cooked quinoa: Thoroughly rinse 1/2 cup quinoa and drain. Combine quinoa with 1/2 cup water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover pan, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until water is completely absorbed and grain is translucent.
QUINOA & WILD RICE CROQUETTES
1 c. quinoa
1/2 c. wild rice
3 c. boiling water
Combine quinoa and wild rice in saucepan with boiling water cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until all moisture is gone. Cool. 1/4 c. celery, chopped very fine 1/4 c. onion, chopped very fine 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tbsp. chopped parsley 1/2 c. mushrooms, chopped fine 1 tbsp. soy sauce Mix in 1/2 c. bread crumbs 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Mix all the above ingredients together well with quinoa and wild rice; let stand in refrigerator 2-4 hours then form into croquettes or small patties. Dredge in flour and dip into eggs mixed with 4 teaspoons milk, then roll into bread crumbs, let set for 1/2 hour.
Deep fry until golden brown. Serve at once with a hot mustard sauce of your choice. You may add cooked chicken or shrimp to this recipe. This mixture is a little moist and hard to dredge in flour and roll in bread crumbs, just be real careful. When fried the center is creamy and moist and very good.
