Quinoa – a nutritious pseudograin

Comparing to other grains, quinoa has a high nutritional content:

  • Quinoa is relatively high in quality protein. It is considered a complete protein source, which means that it provides all nine essential amino acids.
  • It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and antioxidants.
  • It is naturally low in sodium, so it’s a great choice for a low-sodium diet.
  • Quinoa is naturally gluten-free which makes it suitable for people who are sensitive or allergic to gluten.

How to make it

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
  • Soak quinoa in water for approx. 4-5 hours. 
  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Line a non-stick cake pan (18 x 26 cm) with parchment paper.
  • Once soaked, rinse quinoa well and let it drain. Place quinoa into a food processor or a blender, along with almonds, flaxseeds, lemon juice, garlic (optional), water, baking powder, and salt, and blend until all is well combined and the batter is relatively smooth. 
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with seeds (pumpkin, sunflower,  cumin seeds).
  • Bake for approx. 40 minutes or until lightly golden. 
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a bit before removing it from the pan.
  • Gently peel the parchment paper off the flatbread.
  • Makes 6 slices.
