How to substitute quinoa for wheat?

Question by John K: How to substitute quinoa for wheat?
I recently bought some quinoa flour for variety and to enhance nutrition. I also bought gluten since quinoa is gluten-free and that is not a concern in my household. I hoped that I could just exchange quinoa flour for wheat flor, add a little gluten and bake as before but my recipes so far seem to come out too thin. Any suggestions on what I might be lacking?

I haven’t tried the quinoa flour, but maybe you should just do half / half to see if that helps then perhaps do some research or ask at your local heath food store for some suggestions.

  1. Bob’s Red Mill grain company might be able to help you with recipes. I know of a couple of bakeries that make such loaves. I had an almond, quinoa, and date loaf last week and it was really nice – it wasn’t fluffy like white bread but more like a lemon loaf or banana loaf in texture.
