Michelle and I enjoyed a simple gluten-free dish last week. We have been a little obsessed with it. We had a bunch of tri-colored quinoa on hand and decided to try baking quinoa as a pie. Unsure of what it would turn out like… we watch the oven with our fingers crossed.
Pure2raw: Baked Quinoa Pie
- 2 cups tri-color quinoa ( we sprouted ours, and you may use any quinoa you have)
- 1 3/4 cup pumpkin seed milk (we made our own, you can use any non-dairy or milk of your choice)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 small garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 3-4 tbsp flax meal (helps hold it together)
- small handful fresh parsley (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard (we used an organic gluten-free mustard)
We have noticed when making cooked quinoa from sprouted quinoa we like it with less water than the typical 2:1 ratio. But feel free to cook your quinoa the way you like it. **our quinoa was not as soft as we normally would have cooked it, we wanted to have a little crunchy, chewy texture for this dish.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook your quinoa with non-dairy milk and water. Once quinoa is about done add in your sea salt, garlic, nutritional yeast, parsley and mustard. Stir till all combined. *we cooked our quinoa for about 12-15 minutes.
Lightly oil your pie shell with some coconut oil. Than pour your cooked quinoa into pie shell. Place in oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
There you have if friends a simple gluten-free vegan meal ready in under an hour!
This dish is easy enough to make a head of time and just reheat! Plus you can add in your favorite spices and mustard! Have a little fun with it.
Baked quinoa pie is great on salads too!
We devoured this pie probably more quickly than we should have, haha.
We just loved it. We hope you will love it too! Another great pie recipe is our Lentil Pie.
Twins Question: Are you a mustard fan? Nutritional yeast fan? What gluten-free dish is your favorite to make with quinoa? Do you like the tri-colored quinoa?
