A GF alternative quinoa crust


  1. Grind flax seeds in a small coffee grinder and mix flax meal with 2 tbsp water in a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. Cook quinoa in water as you would rice. Add 1 cup quinoa and 1.5 cups water into the pot, bring to the boil, stir well, cover and immediately reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until water is completely absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a spoon to prevent from sticking to the bottom of the pot and quickly cover again to keep in steam.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

  4. Once quinoa is touchable, add flax meal mush to it and knead together with your hands until the flax seed is thoroughly mixed into the quinoa and everything forms a dough.

  5. Put dough in a lightly greased (especially the sides) 9" separable tart pan and press into the pan with your fingers until bottom and sides are covered up to the edge.

  6. Cut your pears in slices and place them on top in a flower formation.

  7. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.

  8. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and enjoy!
