How to make Gluten-Free Quinoa Flatbread

Rinse and drain the raw quinoa thoroughly to remove the bitterness.

Step 2

Then, transfer the quinoa to a pot, pour in the given amount of water, and stir in the salt.

Step 3

Bring to a boil and simmer the quinoa covered for 15 minutes over medium heat until the grains are soft and the water has been absorbed. Then, turn off the heat and leave the quinoa to stand for 8 minutes covered.

Step 4

Step 5

Grease your hands with vegetable oil, and work quinoa bread dough in a bowl until smooth and compact. To make one flatbread, pinch off 120g (4 oz) of dough and roll it into a smooth ball.

Step 6

Working over a sheet of greased baking paper, roll out the dough ball into a 3 mm thick disc. Use the rim of a 15 cm (6 inch) bowl to cut out a round flatbread shape.

Step 7

Now, heat and grease a skillet. Cook the quinoa bread for 3-4 minutes over medium heat, then gently flip it, and cook for 2-3 more minutes.

Step 8

Let the cooked quinoa flatbread cool down a minute on a rack, then wrap it in foil to keep it warm, while you finish cooking the others.
