boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until grains are translucent (13-15 mins) Drain well.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt just until combined. Mix in cooked quinoa and dried fruit or raisins (if using). Pour into a 9” square baking pan prepared with a coat of cooking spray. Stir together topping ingredi- ents and sprinkle over top of pudding.

Editor’s Note: This is very similar to rice pudding, although not as creamy. I have also substituted canned peach- es (drained and cubed) for the dried fruit. Many rice recipes can use quinoa as a substitute.
