Words and Photography by Sara CastiglioniFood Styling and Recipes Barbara Coello



150g of flour
70g of quinoa
50 ml of olive oil or coconut oil
1 orange
3 spoons of honey
30g of brown sugar


Pour the quinoa into a pan of boiling water (2 parts water to 1 part quinoa) and let it cook until its grains are soft (10 minutes).

Sift the flour and mix with brown sugar: then add the quinoa, drained and cold.

Knead the dough with your hands and add the oil, honey and juice and grated rind of the orange. Knead until you have a homogenous compound: wrap it in a cloth and let rest for 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough and cut into desired shapes.

Bake for 30 minutes at 170°C.
