Gluten Free Quinoa Bread is the perfect snack or accompaniment with any meal. Great served with cultured veggies, pesto or with an egg scramble, this delightful bread is baked so that it’s crisp and light. Suitable for people on a candida diet and if you adjust the flavourings it also works for fodmap, fructose free, low amine and salicylate diets. Hope you enjoy it!
Of course you could use another seed or grain such as millet, buckwheat or rice. Cook the seed or grain by absorption and then add the flavourings. Too simple.

- Fresh herbs – parsley, basil, coriander, chives
- Veggies – cooked onion, garlic, chilli

- In a food processor bowl, add the cooked quinoa (still warm but not hot)
