Method

  1. Wash quinoa in a bowl, then drain well. Bring quinoa and 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until grains are translucent, 13-15. Drain well in a sieve. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Butter a 9-inch (23 cm) square metal baking pan.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar (but one tablespoon) and salt until just combined. Stir in the cooked quinoa, nuts, and raisins. Pour the mixture into the buttered pan.
