Fun with Flour Mill: Quinoa Multigrain Loaf

When I hunted for bread recipes made with quinoa, the one I found contained cooked quinoa.  I ground my own quinoa and combined with other grain flours (garbanzo, whole wheat and white) in a traditional yeast bread recipe.  It was very good toasted!

Quinoa Mixed Grain Bread

(1 loaf : 12-14 slices)

In bowl of electric mixer with dough hook in place, mix 1 cup flour, sugar and yeast.
1 cup white flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon active dry yeast

Slowly add warm milk and lemon juice.  Beat on medium high speed 2 minutes.
1 1/4 cup skim milk (125 F)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Add 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.  Beat on medium speed 2 minutes.  Scrape sides down.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Add garbanzo and quinoa flours.  Add salt.  Beat on low speed, scraping bowl down.
1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
2/3 cup red quinoa flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Slowly add white flour, kneading on low speed until dough leaves sides of bowl.
3/4 cup white flour

Place in a bowl greased with olive oil spray.  Turn to coat both sides.  Let rise until double in bulk.  Punch dough down.

Place in 8 inch loaf pan greased with olive oil spray.  Cover and let rise until double.

Bake at 350 F. 40 minutes.

Cool on wire rack.

2/3 cup quinoa = 1 cup ground flour.  (Place motor and speed dials at 1/4) 
1/3 cup garbanzo beans = 1/2 cup ground flour.  (Place motor and speed dials at full speed)
