Quinoa pudding

 

Naturally gluten-free, high in protein, magnesium, potassium, folate, fiber and more, quinoa is gaining in popularity as never before. Including quinoa in your diet is easy. Although it is really a seed, it cooks like a grain and can be substituted in most recipes where other grains are used like quinoa pudding instead of rice pudding or in tabouli instead of couscous.
