Quinoa & Flax Seeds Bread

My recent baking adventure goes for baked goodies with Quinoa...Yes i have prepared today a bread with cooked quinoa and flax seeds with wheat pastry flour..My first trial with quinoa and flax seeds bread turned out really awesome..We had this bread for our lunch with salad and for dinner as sandwich with roasted chicken...A complete healthy bread to enjoy without any guilt, this bread suits prefectly for any course along with any spreads or simply with any veggies..We enjoyed having this bread and even my DH loved this bread, also he came to know more about quinoa, our new favourite grain after oats..This bread is eggless also vegan as i used olive oil to prepare this beautiful,healthy and fantastic bread...This bread is my entry to Madhuram's Whole Grains Baking Event -Quinoa and to Champa's Bake Off Event and finally to Susan's Yeastspotting..


1cup Quinoa (cooked)
2cup Whole wheat pastry flour+2tbsps for dusting
1/4cup Olive oil
2tbsp Flax seeds
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
1cup Luke Warm water

Cook half a cup of quinoa with a cup of water with enough salt in simmer, until they get cooked..keep aside and let them cool...Mix the yeast,sugar and salt in a cup of luke warm water and keep side for 5minutes until the yeast mixture turns foamy.. Take the cooked quinoa(keep aside 2tbsp cooked quinoa for topping), whole wheat pastry flour, flax seeds, mix everything well..slowly add the foamy yeast and olive oil and knead as a soft dough..place the dough in a greased bowl, cover the bowl with a towel and arrange in a warm place..let them sit for an hour until they double the volume..



Punch down the doubled dough, knead slowly the dough dusted with wheat pastry flour,roll the dough as a loaf..grease a loaf pan with olive oil, arrange the rolled loaf to the greased pan, springle the remaining quinoa over the arranged loaf and let it sit again until they double their volume..Preheat the oven to 350F..once the loaf get raised, bake this quinoa and flax seeds bread for 25-30minutes until the crust turns golden brown..

Serve warm!!!
