I’ve been making this quinoa bread for quite some time now and not sure why I haven’t shared the recipe until now. Maybe because I assumed it was too simple to need a recipe but so many of you asked for it once I shared it in my Facebook stories that I finally photographed it and wrote an entire post about.

As easy as this recipe is, there are a few key factors toguarantee its success every single time and that starts with the batter.

About the Batter

We are looking for asmooth and creamy batter that looks like pancake batter. For that we have to make sure to blend it enough so the quinoa seeds arecompletely processed together with the water.

Quinoa Flatbread Seasonings:

  • Everything but the Bagel Seasoning <—my Fave!
  • SuperSeed: hemp, sesame, pepitas, sunflower, poppy, flax
  • Sea Salt Flakes
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Mexican Seasoning.

Whatever version you decide to go for just make sure tosprinkle your seasonings on top before baking so they all cook nicelytogether.

Quinoa Pizza Crust

Yes you can! After 15 minutes of baking remove the flatbread from the oven and add your pizza toppings. Pop it back into the oven for another 10 minutes or so until your plant-based cheese has melted.

How to Make Easy Quinoa Flatbread

  2. Blend quinoa and water until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Spread thinly on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and crisp around the edges.

Quinoa FlatBread Crisps

To make crisps instead make sure to cook the flatbread 5 to 10 minutes longer than theinstructions suggest until the crust getssuper crispy. Remove from the oven and allow to coolcompletely before breaking it into bite size crisps to add to salads or just to snack on.

Storage

This flatbread bread stores well up to 3 days in a glass container covered with a tight lid or a reusable plasticstorage bag.

Good to Know

Quinoa, pronounced KEEN-wah is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the Planet. It is a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids, also high in antioxidants, B vitamins and fiber with a low glycemic index. Add 8 to 12 grams of protein per cup and quinoa is an absolute nutrient powerhouse. Even Nasa scientists are analyzing it as the perfect crop to be grown in outer space. Consider me super impressed!

  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1 pinch sea salt OPTIONAL

US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425”F.

  • Add the quinoa and the hot water to a bowl and allow to soak for 15 minutes.

  • Transfer to a powerful blender, add a pinch of sea salt and process until a creamy batter forms, much like a pancake batter.

  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Pour the quinoa batter in the middle and using a spatula spread it thinly and evenly towards the sides of the baking sheet. (You can shape it into a round 11 inch circle or a simple rectangular shape, whatever you prefer.)

  • OPTIONAL: sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of my everything but the bagel seasoning over the top.

  • Bake the quinoa flatbread for 20 to 25 minutes (no need to flip it) until golden brown and crisp around the edges. The longer you cook it the crisper it will get so make sure to check after 20 minutes.
