  1. Combine apple juice, quinoa, and vanilla extract in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  2. Gently fold blueberries into hot quinoa. Pour blueberry mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Cool until quinoa is set.
  3. Whisk almond milk, water, and cornstarch together in a small saucepan over high heat. Add lemon juice and maple syrup; cook, stirring constantly, until glaze is thick, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour hot glaze over quinoa to cover it completely. Cool to room temperature. Cover baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

I made this to be eaten as a breakfast meal or a snack. It is not very sweet, so don't expect a "dessert" per se. I didn't have a full pint of blueberries on hand so I added craisins. Then I ...

I thought this was more suited for breakfast rather than dessert. I gave it 3 stars due to the flavor and grainy consistency of the glaze. This is a good base recipe that can be changed for many...

A great way to incorporate quinoa. I made a small change and decided to layer with a top coating of banana cream pudding made with unsweetened almond milk. Delish!

Tolerable, but I wouldn't make it again. It makes a ton. I like the level of sweetness, but not really feeling it with the quinoa. Maybe the topping would be good drizzled over some fresh fruit.

Ran out of apple juice so had to use a cup of cranberry juice to complete the liquid to cook the quinoa. My husband loved it heated in the microwave and asked me to make it again. I thought it...
