Quinoa Pudding with Apricots and Pistachios

I made this quinoa pudding last Saturday for breakfast. I am not an oatmeal person and only like very few commercial cereals, but I like quinoa.

It is rich in protein, easy and quick to prepare which makes it an excellent choice for breakfast. I make mine slightly undercooked for an al dente bite.

Use almond or regular milk. Add dried apricots or cranberries. Top with pistachios or almonds. It is yours to customize; a blank canvas for your whims and desires.
