Fluffy cooked quinoa 

ready to be added to bread dough

Ever tried baking bread with Quinoa and Chia Seeds? 

You will love its soft texture and colour.  
This is a healthy loaf 
with the goodness of Quinoa and Chia Seeds blended into it.  
It is moist, light and spongy. 
Its light brown colour comes from the molasses.

To Prepare Quinoa:
1) clean and soak 1 cup quinoa for 1-4 hours
2) cook in rice cooker or steamed with 1.5 cup water
3) leave to cool

100g cooked quinoa from the batch
160-180g fresh milk 
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp butter
225g high protein flour
1 Tbsp chia seed
1 tsp instant yeast
1 Tbsp molasses

1) put all ingredients in bread machine, bread dough cycle
2) the dough should be soft and not too sticky
3) let proof until double 60min
4) shape to bake in loaf pan
5) let proof again until double
6) bake in preheated oven 175'C for 35min

Note: This bread can be baked in the bread maker and it is still soft

Katie Foong: BiBi C. Bbc I tried baking with blended quinoa
but it taste a bit bitter because without soaking,
the quinoa has a slight bitter taste
September 7 at 9:50am

BiBi C. Bbc: I'm doing it right now.
I actually soaked it overnight.
It has this nutty taste to it too.

Katie Foong: Quinoa is a good source of protein.
It also helps to strengthen the immune system.
That is the reason why I like to bake and cook with it.
Unfortunately not many people can stand the nutty flavour and bitter
September 7 at 9:56am

Katie Foong: BiBi C. Bbc no worry,
it will if you have measured the ingredients correctly.
September 7 at 9:57am

BiBi C. Bbc: Sometimes I do cook it along with white rice .
So it's a good combination. Not so nutty.
�� yes I'm aware of its nutrients as it is gluten free too.
Days that we want to go on a healthier diet.

can I replace molasses with honey? 😊

Katie Foong: The molasses is of very small amount to give some sweetness and colour to the crumbs of the loaf. You may replace it with brown sugar, no need honey.
