A combo of interesting flours goes into this hearty and satiating loaf! The Buckwheat and Quinoa Bread is a healthy, gluten-free and multi-grain bread with a nice crust and dense mealy texture that’s wonderful to bite into.

The dough is a bit sticky but work on it deftly and you will end up with an awesome loaf. You can toast the bread on a tava and serve it with butter, peanut butter or your favourite spread.

It lasts in the fridge in an airtight container for 4 days. You can also try your hand at making other breads like the Multigrain Bread or Almond Flax Bread with Eggs.

Tried it...very disappointed! Bread didn’t rise at all, was hard and tasted bitter in the end. Followed the recipe completely . Wonder what went wrong!

   Hi, Bread making is an art and one can master it with practice....make sure the tin you use is also of the size mentioned and the oven temperature is also as said....the yeast you use is also important we have used prime instant dry yeast that will make the bread rise well....

Made it for a Sunday brunch at home and ate it with almond butter. It tasted so delicious and got over in no time. Made another batch on the same evening and stored it in the refrigerator. Thanks for the recipe.
