Quinoa Almond Herbed Bread Sticks
These Quinoa Almond Herbed Bread Sticks are made in some unique steps and the combination is outstanding as well. Its delicious, satisfying and yet healthy. Along with being vegan it is gluten free too.
- 1/4 cup flaxseed meal (soaked in 3/4 cup water)
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
Preheat oven at 400 degree Fahrenheit. Prepare a cookie sheet with a liner and grease it well. Grind the cooked quinoa just up to it starts to form lumps.
In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
Now pour all the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix vigorously. Make sure there are no lumps. I prefer using my hands to make sure there are no lumps. Spoon the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet and spread it into a rectangular/oblong shape with your hands gently without breaking the batter. Put the sheet on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the tester comes out clean and the sides starts browning.
Take it out of the oven and let it cool completely or else it will break. Now cut into desired shape. Drizzle some olive oil and serve with marinara sauce/cheese dip. Can be toasted for crisper version and if desired sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese and then toast it.
- This recipe is vegan and gluten free and hence will not be super crispy. It will definitely satisfy your cravings for bread sticks in a healthier version.
- For mixed herbs: I used a mixture of parsley, basil, oregano and rosemary (dried). Feel free to use any dried/fresh herbs of your choice.
