Moist quinoa bread

This moist quinoa bread is a good source of folate, iodine, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. It’s perfect for breastfeeding women, as this can be part of a one-hand meal, prepared in advance. It stays fresh for several days and can be included in several meals throughout the day. This filling and tasty bread can be the base for many meals. For example, spread it with cream cheese and top with a slice of capsicum. Keep it ready in the fridge, bring it along on pram walks or eat it when you crave a quick snack.
