MAKE PORRIDGE WITH QUINOA FLAKES
Quinoa flakes are an easy-to-use and versatile alternative to traditional, more familiar flakes. The flakes are made from quinoa, a gluten free plant related to spinach and beetroot.
Quinoa has been grown for more than 5,000 years in the Andes Mountains of South America, and it was once the most important plant for the Ancient Incas. The sunny environment and dry soil makes the crops flourish from century to century. Today, quinoa is one of the most used ingredients in South American cuisine, and it has gained popularity worldwide. The part of the quinoa plant that is used for cooking are the small, round seeds.
Mild and slightly nutty in taste, quinoa flakes are a versatile tool in cooking. The flakes are commonly used to make porridge in the same way you would with traditional oat flakes. Quinoa flakes are great for raw porridge and baking, such as fruit crumbles, granola and pie and cake batters.
