Blueberry Quinoa Crumble
Toasting quinoa flour does away with its strong smell and brings out a rich nutty flavor. To toast, place the flour on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread into a layer no more than 1/4 inch. Bake at 220 degrees for 90 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before storing in the refrigerator or freezer. Toasting is optional and for flavor only.
