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.
