Onion Thyme Quinoa Bread (Vegan, No Oil)

Oh, for the love of quinoa! If you aren't aware, quinoa is a popular super food and incredibly versatile!

The end result of this recipe is pretty darn tasty. Dip a slice of this bread in spaghetti sauce . . . and my, oh, my! 

Truth be told, I only began experimenting with quinoa flour because my mom bought some months ago and didn't know what to do with it. . .it turns out, you can do a lot. Moreover, you can cheaply make your own quinoa flour (with a spice grinder) - and, hey, why not save some bucks?


2 cups quinoa flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon thyme
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 cups almond milk
1 tablespoon vinegar (any type)

Optional Ingredients:
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (for a spicy bread)
3 tablespoons olive oil (for enhanced texture)


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, thyme, onion, powder, and cayenne pepper (optional).

2. In a small to medium bowl, combine the almond milk, vinegar, and oil (optional).
3. Pour the almond milk and vinegar mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well (there should be no clumps of flour).
4. Transfer the dough into a greased 8x5" loaf pan. You can also consider using parchment paper in the pan if you prefer to use no oil.
5. Lightly cover the pan with aluminum foil.
6. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees with the aluminum foil covering the pan.
7. Remove the aluminum foil and bake the bread for an additional 30 minutes (totaling 60 minutes of bake time).
8. Remove the bread from the oven, let cool, remove from the pan, and slice.
9. Enjoy and refrigerate any leftover slices in a plastic container in the fridge.
