Quinoa/sweet potato/apple dessert (think its paleo?)
I love to cook and bake! Iím new to paleo diet so Iím not sure if this is a healthy addition to my diet. Iíve noticed some threads in which people have posted how some gluten free or nut flours or arenít good for daily consumption and I want to stay lean and healthy. Figured Iíd post the recipe and get some input. Its tasty tho!!!! And easy to make!!!!
What you need:
ľ cup quinoa (prepare it as the directions on the box instruct) set aside.
Ĺ lb of sweet potato pureed in a food processer
1 small red delicious apple pureed (skin on).
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1/8 teaspoon of allspice and/or nutmeg, cloves (optional)
Ĺ cup of unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk (I used almond)
-Cook time: 25mins--Combine pureed sweet potato and apple in a medium sized pot add in cinnamon, salt, milk, and optional spices. Bring to boil and reduce heat to about medium-low or so (gauge it) and cover it partly to let some steam escape or you may have a mess.
-If it needs more almond milk add some, but donít freak out if its kinda runny Ďcause youíre going to add the quinoa once it cooked.
-After 25 mins check on it and see if its mushy enough for you. If it is then add quinoa and take it off the heat!
