Quinoa Flour

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Cook's Basics -

Made by grind­ing whole quinoa seed, quinoa flour, which is high in pro­tein, and one of the few plant foods that con­tain all nine es­sen­tial amino acids, looks and feels like all-pur­pose flour and can be used in a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent bak­ing recipes in­clud­ing muffins, cakes, breads, cook­ies, pies, and more. It can also be used in savoury dishes, such as soups, stews, and even gravies as a thick­en­ing agent. An ex­cel­lent in­gre­di­ent for gluten-free bak­ing, quinoa flour is also high in fiber, mag­ne­sium, B vi­ta­mins, iron, potas­sium, cal­cium, phos­pho­rus, vi­ta­min E, and var­i­ous ben­e­fi­cial an­tiox­i­dants.
