Quinoa con Leche
PREP TIME: 03 MINS
COOK TIME: 35 MINS
1 cup Inca’s Food Quinoa
2 to 3 Doña Isabel Cinnamon Sticks
1 to 2 star anise
1 cup water
2 cups coconut milk
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon optional
1 teaspoon Inca’s Food Vanilla Essence
1 cup whole milk
Wash and strain the quinoa. Set aside.
In a pan and medium heat, char the cinnamon stick, cloves, and star anise. Add the coconut milk and cold water. Let this simmer together with the spices for 7 – 10 minutes. Cook uncovered. Taste to check if the spices need to be simmered for longer to have a more intense flavor. Remove the spices.
Add in the washed quinoa. Cook these for approximately 15 minutes or until most of the liquids have been absorbed by the quinoa. Be sure to stir often.
Turn the heat to low and add the brown sugar, cinnamon powder, and vanilla, slowly add the whole milk while stirring.
Take off the heat once the sugar has dissolved. Continue mixing till you get a creamy texture. Add more milk as needed.
Serve warm or cold from the fridge for a chilled dessert.
