Quinoa Parfait Recipe

Quinoa Parfait Recipe 

My first experience with a parfait was a Dairy Queen; the peanut buster parfait was its name.  I was in love!  Ice cream, chocolate syrup and peanuts all in a fancy plastic cup.  I always felt like a grown up when I ate it!  Although the Quinoa Parfait Recipe has no ice cream or peanuts…it reminds me of the flavors I loved in that childhood treat.

Servings: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa rinsed
  • 2 cups unsweetened nut milk, almond, cashew or coconut
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 pasture raised egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh berries
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk whip
  • ground cinnamon for garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine rinsed quinoa, 2 cups of milk and salt in medium saucepan.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.  Stirring frequently.  

  2. In a bowl whisk honey, egg and vanilla extract. Set aside until quinoa mixture is cooked.

  3. While quinoa mixture is hot, add 1/2 cup to honey mixture.  Whisk together.  Add back to saucepan and cook over medium heat 3-5 minutes until bubbly and thick.  


  4. Remove from heat and cool for at least 30 mins.  I like to refrigerate it over night but not necessary.

    What is coconut whip? Is it just the milk whipped into a froth?

    • I was hoping someone would ask! Chill a can of full fat of coconut milk. Once chilled remove hardened fat layer into a mixing bowl. Add a little honey, tiny bit of vanilla and cinnamon and beat well with a mixer. It makes a delightful whip topping for the parfait! Enjoy!
