This is a nutrient rich, dense and moist quinoa bread that I found here. It has a nutty texture that comes from the sprouted black quinoa and makes the perfect sandwiches.
I can’t tell you how good it tastes and how easy this recipe is. The most important steps would be to soak your quinoa overnight until sprouty before starting the recipe and puree it with other ingredients in your food processor. Don't expect it would resemble the traditional bread because it's naturally gluten-free, it wouldn't rise high. Use white or red quinoa if you don't have the black variety and tapioca starch can be substituted with cornstarch.
- Rinse quinoa thoroughly and place them in a pot or plastic container. Cover the quinoa with water and let soak overnight. Drain.
- Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Grease or line a small loaf pan with parchment paper.
- Place the drained quinoa in a blender along with egg whites, almond milk, maple syrup, tapioca starch, and a good pinch of sea salt. Process until everything is well blended and pureed. You don't want any whole quinoa seeds left.
- In another bowl, whisk together the almond meal, baking soda, and baking powder. Pour the pureed quinoa mixture into the dry one. Mix until just incorporated. The mixture will as runny as pancake batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before slicing.
