Quinoa Flatbread Recipe

This gluten-free, yeast-free, and vegan quinoa flatbread is not only healthy but also deliciously versatile. Packed with the goodness of quinoa and flavored with aromatic spices, this flatbread is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a nutritious alternative to traditional bread. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 1/4 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup tap water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for cooking


  1. Soak the Quinoa:
    • Rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold running water to remove any saponins, which can give a bitter taste.
    • Soak the quinoa in 1 cup of tap water for at least 6-8 hours, or overnight. This helps to soften the grains and make them easier to blend.
  2. Prepare the Batter:
    • Drain the soaked quinoa and place it in a blender.
    • Add 1 cup of fresh tap water, salt, garlic powder, turmeric, and paprika to the blender.
    • Blend on high until you achieve a smooth and creamy batter. It should have a pourable consistency similar to pancake batter. If it’s too thick, add a little more water.
  3. Add Herbs:
    • Stir the chopped parsley into the batter.
  4. Cook the Flatbread:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and brush it with a little olive oil.
    • Pour some of the batter into the skillet, spreading it out to form a thin layer, much like you would with a crepe.
    • Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until the flatbread is golden and crispy around the edges. Flip carefully using a spatula.
  5. Repeat:
    • Continue with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the skillet as needed between batches.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve the quinoa flatbreads warm as a side dish, with dips, or use them as a base for various toppings like hummus, avocado, or fresh vegetables.


  • Storage: These flatbreads can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days. Reheat in a skillet or microwave when ready to eat.
  • Variations: Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices according to your taste preferences. Adding finely diced onions or spinach can also enhance the flavor and nutritional profile.
