Didn’t really taste of anything , used it as a side dish to a vegetarian curry. Mine came out quite soft very nice texture slightly harder than a pancake I also make this with quinoa flakes, oats and chia seeds as I find quinoa expensive and didn’t want to use to much Additionally, I put every thing in the blender and saved 8 hours with the flakes.

Simple to make, though neither husband nor kids liked it. I found it surprisingly tasty and will likely make again to use as a flatbread with veggies, hummus, etc. Like another reviewer mentioned, a bullet-style blender works in place of a food processor.

Excellent recipe! It's just like real bread. I will make this again! It's very fast and easy to put together.

This pizza turned out ALOT better then I expected! It had the perfect texture and held up super well; it was crispy and super delicious. Topped with a homemade Greek yogurt pesto, Parmesan cheese, arugula, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. If you like quinoa, you'll love this!

simply U N B E L I E V A B L E !!!! Easy to prepare, leaves a feeling of fulfillment after you taste it!

I was really surprised at how well it turned out. I will definitely be doing his again. I didn't use parchment paper so it was a bit difficult to flip and instead of using a food processor I used a "bullet" which worked out perfectly.

So happy with the result! I baked it in a casserole pan & it held together beautifully! Will make again and try to flatten it out some more.

Firstly, the quinoa I soaked did not absorb enough water even with it soaked for nearly 24 hours and was very difficult for my cuisenart to make into any semblance of a proper batter. Perhaps because I only had red quinoa available, maybe it was stale, I don't know. Also don't use a round cake pan, not with that much batter. Follow her second video and put it in a much larger pan to get a thinner and crispier crust. It tastes much better that way
