How about changing from traditional pie crust? To have different flavors, reduce flour’s gluten or low fat for example. Or because there are lots of proteins in quinoa. Or simply because this is incredibly easy and quick to prepare, and so tasty !
The recipe is just precooked quinoa mixed with a beaten egg. The quinoa I used is a blend of red and white quinoa (with spices already included) but you may choose your usual quinoa and add flavor to the crust by for example :
- cooking quinoa in water with vegetable broth
- adding the spices of your choice, or a tea spoon of flavored mustard to the preparation
- adding grated cheese (such as cheddar or parmesan) is also great
And for a vegan crust, replace egg by a bit of olive oil (then it’s nice to add mustard or cheese).
