Quinoa Veggie Loaf

Quinoa is a super seed that is very high in protein and minerals. It is not a grain and therefore does not contribute to increased sugar load. I used to bake this loaf with millet 30 years ago, in my vegetarian “hippie days”.  Serve as a side dish or as a main course with veggies. Bon Appétit!

Boil 1 cup of Quinoa in 2 cups water.

Pour the cooked quinoa into a large mixing bowl and add the following:

½ cup ground flax seed

1 chopped onion

2 stalks celery, chopped

1 grated carrot

2 eggs beaten (you can eliminate the eggs if you are strict vegetarian)

2 Tbs. Almond butter

1 Tbs. hemp butter

2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. thyme

1 tsp. garlic

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. salt

Mix well together and put into an oiled glass loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 F.

Serve with Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or salt to taste. Enjoy.

  • I’ve never heard of or seen hemp butter. I have hemp oil and hemp seed, but never butter. Could I use the hemp oil instead?
    Thanks. Looks and sounds delicious.
