coconut quinoa brulee with berry trio compote

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Organic Sprouted Quinoa
  • 14oz Organic Coconut Cream14oz Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1 thread Saffron
  • 2 ¼ C Cane Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1 tsp Lavender Extract
  • 2 Cups California Giant Farms Organic Blueberries
  • 2 Cups California Giant Farms Organic Raspberries
  • 2 Cups California Giant Farms Organic Blackberries

Directions

  1. Place quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and allow to drain. (rinse the quinoa to remove any potential bitter residue.)
  2. In a medium (approximately 4-quart) pot, combine quinoa, coconut milk, coconut cream, saffron, ½ C sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cover, leaving the lid slightly off so that steam may escape. Simmer for approx. 25 minutes, stirring about every 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid and continue simmering for 5 more minutes or until pudding has thickened and the quinoa has absorbed most (but not all) of the liquid. Remove from heat.
  4. For the Compote, Blueberry- Combine 1 C of the blueberries, ½ C sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the Blueberries, and Lavender extract and simmer until a jam-like consistency is achieved. Stirring frequently. Set aside. 
  5.  For the Compote, Raspberry- Combine 1 C of the Raspberries, ½ C sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the Raspberries, 1 tsp finely chopped fresh mint, and simmer until a jam-like consistency is achieved. Stirring frequently. Set aside.
  6. For the Compote, Blackberries- Combine 1 C of the Blackberries, ½ C sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the Blackberries, and simmer until a jam-like consistency is achieved. Stirring frequently. Set aside.
  7. Pour into ramekins and allow to cool completely under refrigeration.
  8. Divide the remaining sugar among the ramekins and spread evenly on top. Using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Allow the brulee to sit for 5 minutes.
  9. Top each ramekin with a different Fruit Compote. Garnish with mint leaves.
