can you please provide the link to the onion powder. i didn’t find it
As soon as I opened my email and saw this, I preheated my oven and blended up a batch. What a simple and delicious gluten-free treat…the chewy parts are complemented by crispy edges…such a sensory delight! I doubled the onion powder and added 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning. We tore off chunks and spread some hummus and sliced green onions on top. Hubby gave it a huge thumbs up. Thanks Jill! I’m a new fan, not sure how it took me so long to find you as we’ve been WFPB for 8+ years. Better late than never! Can’t wait to make some of your desserts, like the black bean brownies :-).
That is fantastic! Let me know what you think. Our family favorites are the peanutbutter cup blizzard and the chocolate cheesecake =)
This looks perfect. So easy, just two ingredients. Can you make it in a nonstick pan even faster? Can’t wait to try this !!
I haven’t tried it but I’m pretty sure that would work =)
Silly question— do I use cooked or uncooked wuinoa?
Is the quinoa cooked or raw
Jill showed raw (uncooked) in the video. I used raw; just measured and poured into my Vitamix blender, added rest of ingredients and blended well for a minute or so. I had to scrape down some of the unblended bits of quinoa and thought next time I might blend/grind the dry quinoa by itself before adding the other ingredients.
It is not cooked =)
I did ch 5his and it was totally watery. What am I d oying wrong
Sorry typos. 1 I did this and it was totally watery. What am I doing wrong
Not sure, mine has never been watery. Maybe after you mix it, let it sit for a few minutes before pouring it in the pan.
I made the mistake of washing the quinoa first & then added the full amount of water as well. Also, came out totally watery. Added additional dry quinoa (took about a full cup more)
, blended it again, & the battered thickened up well enough. Thanks Jill for the recipe!
Made these for the family using garlic powder and rosemary. My daughter refuses to eat quinoa, but she loved this recipe. Thank you!
Sorry, but do you cook the quinoa first?
20 or 25 minutes? 5 minutes is a big difference in time. What will I be looking for, please?
Golden brown edges and firm center =)
These are fabulous! I love how easy they are to put together. Thank you for the great recipe!
Love this recipe but aren’t you supposed to rinse Quinoa well before cooking… But if I do it ends up watery. Pls help!!
I don’t rinse the quinoa for that very reason in this recipe.
A lot of quinoa comes pre rinsed. Should state it on the package unless you do bulk.
Could you use these as a base for pizza? Love think pizza crust.
Jill, I LOVE your youtube channel and your recipes! I am new to plant-based eating and your videos are making it a lot easier for me to make the transition. I really appreciate you, the time you invest to help all of us, and your inspiration.
This is my go-to WFPB bread now, I’ve made it many times, it’s delicious and so simple. I usually add a T of onion and a T of garlic to make it more flavorful, also a t of Braggs. Thank you for yet another great recipe, Jill!
Thank you, Jill! I can’t wait to try this! I really enjoy your recipes and videos.
LOVE this!! Since it can bend and not break it makes great buns for sandwiches and your carrot dogs! If I wanted to experiment and use another grain, can you suggest any that might work.
How much does the ground quinoa make by volume? I have quinoa flour already and it would allow me to skip this step.
How do you store this if you’re not going to eat it right away? I’m the fridge or just wrapped up and put away? I made mine today and hoping to eat it throughout the week. Thank you!
I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge for over a week and then just pop one in the toaster to heat it up slightly.
We had difficulty peeling off the parchment paper after 5 minutes. It was stuck tight. Except for the edges, we pulled away a layer of the bread with the paper. Any idea what we did wrong?
Some brands of parchment paper are like that for some reason. You might bake it a bit longer so that it is more firm before trying to peel it off.
Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely try them. I have to mention though, that the surface of quinoa grains is full of saponins, which is toxic. It is always a good idea to wash them. A simple google search will provide the info about this. One can put a bit less water to make the batter.
Harmless to most people in small amounts.
Can I use quinoa flour for this recipe?
I haven’t tried it but I think it will still work.
Have you experimented with over night soaked quinoa? I wonder how much to reduce water amount for this recipe to work.
I haven’t, sorry
i found spraying the parchment with a cooking spray helped the bread come off the parchment really easily. also cooking it at 425 made it brown and crisp. i added garlic powder, nigella seeds, salt, pepper, chili flakes, onion powder to it. i can NOT believe how good it is and is only made with water and quinoa! thanks for the recipe 🙂
