Inside Cooking Ep 150: Quinoa Cornbread

What better comfort accompaniment to a bowl of hot soup or stew than homemade cornbread? Here is the delicious traditional cornbread with some added health benefits!

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups cornmeal
  • 2½ cups milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (Gluten Free: Use all-purpose GF blend)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

Instructions

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 9X13 inch baking pan.

STEP 2

Combine the cornmeal and milk in a medium bowl and let it stand for at least 10 minutes.

STEP 3

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat in the eggs and oil just until the mixture is crumbly. Add the milk/cornmeal mixture and beat just until combined, about 30 seconds. Be careful not to over-beat or the cornbread will not rise properly. Stir in the quinoa, breaking up any lumps.

STEP 4

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let sit for at least 5 minutes before cutting.
