The popularity of White Quinoa Flakes, a relatively new product, has been growing recently. Quinoa Flakes are pressed whole White Quinoa Seeds. Their texture somewhat resembles rolled oats’, but they are a bit smaller and thinner in size.
How can White Quinoa Flakes be used?
Rolled Quinoa Flakes have a pleasant nutty taste and absorb other flavors very well. Given that Flaked Quinoa cooks in less than two minutes, it makes an excellent replacement for quick-cooking rolled oats. You can cook them with water or almond milk, and then spice them with cinnamon and cocoa for extra flavor. Besides, you can top your Quinoa Flakes Cereal with nuts, honey, dried fruits, jam, chocolate, peanut butter, or something savory like eggs, veggies, avocado, and tuna. Pressed Quinoa is amazing for baking cookies, pies, muffins, or pancakes. Use it for no-bake desserts, energy bars, protein bowls, and even as a substitute for wheat flour in some recipes.
How to cook Quinoa Flakes?
1. Combine 1 part of Quinoa Flakes and 3 parts of liquid (water or milk)
2. Bring to a boil
3. Simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes
