3 tablespoons psyllium powder
2 cups filtered water
110g sweet potato, roasted
1/2 cup cooked whole quinoa (plus 2tbsp extra for topping)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup popped/puffed quinoa
1 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup quinoa flour (can also use buckwheat or other natural, unrefined flours)
Himalayan pink salt
Startby pre-heating the oven to 190c. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper. Place the squash in a baking tray and roast until it becomes soft and begins to crisp (about 30-40 minutes).
Next, make a gel by combining the water and psyllium powder. Stir with a fork until combined then leave to thicken.
Blend the popped quinoa, olive oil, psyllium gel and sweet potato in a food processor for 1 - 2 minutes until the mixtures combines into a paste.
Fold in the buckwheat and quinoa flour.
Once combined, fold in the cooked quinoa and mix until you have a soft dough.
Transfer to your loaf tin and top with the extra cooked quinoa.
Bake for 1 hour and 30-40 minutes until golden and crisp on top.
Leave to cool fully before slicing. For maximum freshness, store in an airtight container in the fridge and consumer within one week.
