Apple and Quinoa Flan







I love when a recipe is exactly what you wait!
And this happens with this quinoa dessert  I made from Peru Delights a lovely blog with peruvian recipes.
Chile and Peru have a lot of similar things in some foods and we love especially peruvian desserts, like Suspiro Limeño and others.
The mix mix of quinoa, apple and condensed milk make a delicious flan!
Im sharing with Blogs chilenos and you  can see other great recipes in the link HERE





Apple and quinoa flan

Ingredients
1/3 cup white quinoa
1 granny Smith apple or other apple peeled and chopped
1 cinnamon stick
 1 1/2 cups water
1 cup of sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can unsweetened evaporated milk
1/2 can of the cooking liquid of the quinoa
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

    Method
    Cook quinoa with apple,cinnamon stick and 1 1/2 cup water, over medium heat for 15 minutes or until soft. Reserve and let cool. Strain, reserving the cooking liquid, and measure 1 cup of quinoa with apple.
    Preheat oven to 180°c.
    For caramel, in a saucepan put sugar with tablespoons water, and cook over high heat until lightly golden.Do not let it take too much color because it turns bitter.
    Pour a small amount of caramel in six ramekins.Be careful with caramel is extremely hot and may burns in the skin.
    Now, In the blender process quinoa mix(with the chopped apple), eggs, sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened evaporated milk, vanilla and 1/2 can of the cooking liquid you cooked the quinoa.
    When is ready, pour in the ramekins and accommodate all in a large baking pan, with at least two inches rim, because we are adding one inch hot water, so the flans can bake in a water bath.
    Bake for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven, take out the flans and let them cool at room temperature. Then put them in the fridge and let them rest overnight.
    Unmold, garnish with some berries and mint leaves and a drop of whiped cream is perfect too. 
    Note:
    Some of you asked  if tasted to apples, really not,  really taste like  Dulce de Leche maybe by the condensed milk and when you cook it you have dulce de leche, anyway is absolutely delicious.

      Está adaptado de una receta de Peru Delights un blog peruano con deliciosas recetas.   Con Peru tenemos en comun muchas recetas y repostería , desde el tiempo de la Colonia , la lúcuma, la chirimoya, el manjar o dulce de leche en fin montones de recetas deliciosas.
      Este es mi aporte a Blog de recetas chilenos donde tambien pueden encontrar otras ricas recetas.

      Ingredientes (6 porciones)

      1/3 taza de quinoa blanca (la más comun)
      1 manzana verde pelada y cortada en trozos
      (u otra manzana)
      1 palito de canela
      1 1/2 taza de agua
      1 taza de azúcar
      1 tarro de leche condensada
      1 tarro de leche evaporada
      1/2 tarro de agua de cocción de la quinoa
      4 huevos
      1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla

      Preparación

      En una olla mediana cocinar la quinoa con la manzana picada y 1 taza y 1/2 de agua ( si se ve seco agregar un poco más porque siempre se evapora) cocinar a fuego medioalrededor de 15 minutos o hasta que la quinoa se vea cocida.
      Dejar enfriar. Luego colar y guardar el liquido de la cocción. Medir una taza de la mezcla de quinoa con manzana.
      Precalentar el horno a 180° .

      Aparte preparar caramelo en una olla poner 1 taza de azucar y unas 2 o 3 cucharadas de agua.
      Cocinar hasta que esté ligeramente dorado, no calentar demasiado porque se pone amargo.
      Repartor este caramelo con cuidado en 6 potes de cerámica resistentes al calor. Con cuidado porque el caramelo quema mucho si cae en la piel.

      En la licuadora colocar la mezcla de quinoa, los huevos, la leche condensada, la leche evaporada, vainilla y 1/2 tarro del jugo de cocción de la quinoa.
      Cuando esté lista la mezcla repartir en 6 moldes de cerámica o pyrex (resistentes al calor) y colocar en uns asadera extendida y poner un poco de agua sin mojar los flanes, para cocinar a baño maría.
      Cocinar durante unos 40 minutos hasta que esten firmes, retirar la asadera y dejar enfriar primero a temperatura ambiente y despues en el refrigerador por lo menos toda la noche.
      Al otro día desmoldar con cuidado pasando por el borde la punta de un cuchillo adornar con unas berries y hojas de menta. Tambien se le puede agregar un poco de crema al servir.

    32. Yes this seems to be my kind of recipes, I like to try to do more things with quinoa, and I loved the Peruvian cuisine I tried there! I am not so keen on condensed milk though, do you think that I could use cream?

      1. I think you would love Alessandra is healthy and delicious, I think you can change the condensed milk by cream but dont forget add some sugar because the recipe doesnt because is with condensed milk, but I made flans with cream and are perfect!xo
