Here’s a recipe I’m trying to perfect. Since we went gluten free, it’s been hard to make a crust that tastes like anything but a piece of cardboard holding up whatever is on top of it. So I thought I would try a quinoa crust. It turned out really great but I want to play with the crust recipe a bit more before I publish it. Stay tuned!

The crust was good. Not quite as flavorful as I would like. I'm going to try it again and cook the quinoa in vegetable broth instead of water. I might add a few spices as well.

The finished product. Yum. I added some dairy free sour cream to the top of mine.
