This avocado quinoa toast is easy to make and naturally gluten free, just top with smashed avocado for amazing gluten-free avocado toast. The quinoa flatbread has a nutty flavour that is far tastier than normal bread. Suitable for celiacs, gluten free diets, yeast free diets and general whole food healthy diets.
The base may take a bit of time with soaking and baking, but little prep is needed. So while it isn’t instant it’s still very easy to make. The same recipe has been used to bake a quinoa pizza base and several people commented that you would need to eat with a knife and fork. This is totally not the case, the base comes out crisp and just like normal toast or pizza you can eat with your hands.

Avocado on Quinoa Bread Toast RecipeI used to buy a tiny loaf of quinoa bread several years that was very expensive. It was then a rare treat, now I regularly have this quick quinoa bread. it’s delicious and costs a fraction of shop bought fresh gluten free bread and is also free of grains and yeast.
This quinoa bread is pretty flat and reasonably dense compared to normal bread, but a bit lighter than something like rye bread. The outside is crispy with a fluffy inside. As the inside is a bit wet it should be eaten within a few days and stored in the fridge. The quinoa base can be frozen, so often I make a batch and then freeze most of it.
In central America I’ve had avocado and grits, basically avocado with boiled rice. While that is nice, I much prefer this as the smooth wet avocado is with a crispy and crunchy quinoa bread rather than wet with wet.
