Ingredients

  • For Quinoa Crust:
  • 1 C quinoa, soaked overnight with plenty of water and drained
  • 1 TSP baking powder
  • 1/4 C water
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 TSP olive oil for pan
  • For Roasted Veggies:
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 portobello mushroom, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Spread:
  • basil pesto or spinach pesto

Directions

  1. Turn oven to broil.
  2. In a food processor, add drained quinoa, baking powder, water, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Place sliced vegetables on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Broil for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Set aside.
  4. In a nonstick pan on low heat, heat olive oil then add quinoa batter. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until edges are golden brown. Finish in the oven under the broiler, or flip crust to the other side for 2 minutes (until golden brown).
  5. Remove from oven and while still hot, spread the pesto on top (this makes it melt into the crust).
  6. Top with veggies and serve immediately.
