Toasted Quinoa Flour

Roasted Quinoa Flour

Vegan, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Rice Free, Soya Free, Refined Sugar Free.
Endometriosis, Crohns & Celiac Safe.

Ingredients: 
Quinoa Seeds

Oven:
Gas Mark 4

Sprinkle Your chosen amount of quinoa seeds onto a baking tray

 Pop the tray into the oven for 2 minutes and turn your tray, so that you do not burn the seeds,
If you burn them you will get a lovely burnt tasting flour....not great.

 Once your quinoa seeds are lovely and golden take them out of the oven and leave them to cool.
 Once cooled off, transfer them from the tray to a jug so that they are easy to pour into your blender.
When they are in your blender, start on a low speed and then eventually blast it to high and you should achieve a very fine smooth blended flour.
 Looks messy doesn't it?
 To stop the flour dust and to make it less messy i stretch a freezer bag over the top of the blender and tap it until nearly all of the flour dust is out.

Sometimes it does need a little persuasion with a wooden spoon to get it all out.

The flour has a dark nutty taste, But if you prefer and softer taste, do not toast it in the oven first just pour the quinoa seeds straight into the blender.
