Just made this last night and then again today and boy is it good, and super simple to make. I don’t eat any gluten and really do miss the whole concept of a sandwich sometimes but this really hits the spot. Last night I made it as a pizza base and today was a flatbread sandwich
Pre soak in water for covered 1 cup of uncooked quinoa (ideally overnight but anything from 15mins will work)
3/4 cup of water
1 cup of courgette
1/2 cup of basil
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt and pepper
Pre soak the quinoa ideally overnight and strain and rinse well. Place into a blender along with the other ingredients. Whizz on high speed until you have a smooth batter. Pour this into a lined baking tin or a silicone mould. Cook at 220 for 25mins. Take out and leave to cool.
I like to serve this with cashew cheese, avocado, tomatoes, pea shoots and sauerkraut.
If making it as a pizza base cook for 15mins then cover with a light spreading of tomato sauce, cook for another 5 mins then place your pre cooked veg ontop and cook for final 5 mins. Serve with a generous drizzle of olive oil.
