Cooking Directions:
1.  In a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high, combine the quinoa and 2 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer 12 to 15 minutes until the water is absorbed. Uncover the pan and add the coconut milk, sugar and salt. Simmer gently, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2.  Add the mango and ginger. Continue cooking about 3 minutes until the mixture thickens to a pudding consistency and the mango is soft but still chewy. Remove from the heat.

3.  Slice half a banana into thin rounds, toss with lemon juice and set aside. Mash the remaining 1 1/2 bananas and stir into the pudding. Add more sugar, if needed, then stir in the walnuts. Serve in individual ramekins. Garnish with the reserved banana slices. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
