  • 4 allspice berries
  • The peel of one lemon
  • 3 cups water

  1. In a heavy saucepan put the quinoa, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice and lemon peel. Add water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every now and then. Discard the lemon peel.
  2. Add the evaporated and whole milk. Add sugar. Continue cooking, stirring until the pudding is creamy, 20 more minutes. Turn off the heat.
  3. Add vanilla essence and cool.
  4. Discard the spices and pour the pudding in ramekin or a nice container.
  5. Dust with ground cinnamon and serve at room temperature (I like it cold).
