  • 1 cup – pre-rinsed uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups – milk
  • 1 – egg white
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons – brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon – pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon – ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon – ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon – ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon – nutmeg
  • 2 dashes – ground cloves
  • Shredded or flaked coconut for garnish (optional)
  • Almond slivers for garnish (optional)

Pair each serving with:
8-ounce glass of milk


Bring 2 cups of milk to a full simmer in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, return to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Cover, leaving a tiny crack for steam to escape, and simmer until about two-thirds of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in egg white, brown sugar, vanilla and spices. Return pan to stove, covering again with a tiny crack for steam to escape, and continue to cook on low until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.

Serve with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk and garnish with coconut flakes and almond slivers if desired.
