Pleases Help Me With This Recipie

Recommended Posts

It calls for oats and "quinoa or rice flakes". Does this mean quinoa or quinoa flakes? I have only quinoa. Can I process them to make flakes? What about rinsing them to remove the bitterness?

It means "quinoa flakes" or "rice flakes". Rice flakes is also known as poha. I have never been able to make poha work very well in cooking, so I would stick with quinoa flakes or certified gluten-free oats if you can.

I have only quinoa. Can I process them to make flakes? What about rinsing them to remove the bitterness?

Quinoa flakes are steamed, rolled, and flaked quinoa. If you were to run quinoa through your blender or food processor (pre-rinsed or not), I would think you would end up with flour.

I hope you find something that works for your recipe.

That clears it up. Thank you. Maybe I'll just buy the flakes.
