A new twist on the classic Irish brown soda bread. Quinoa adds a fantastic nuttiness and texture to this easy-to-make, dense bread! Spread with butter and top with honey or blackcurrant jam for a tasty and healthy treat.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour a standard loaf pan.
  3. Place oats in a food processor and blend to about the same size as the quinoa seeds (not necessary, but I think it makes for a better texture).
  4. Combine all ingredients except the buttermilk in a large bowl, making sure to break up any clumps of quinoa with your fingers.
  5. Add half the buttermilk to the dry ingredients, then slowly add the rest until a sticky but firm dough is formed (you may not need to use all of the buttermilk).
  6. Place the dough in the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly.
  7. Bake around 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the top starts to get too dark, tent it with aluminum foil while it finishes baking.
