British-grown lentils and chickpeas - really? Yes, we are now stocking a range of home-grown seeds, grains and pulses including British Baked Beans. So if you've ever wished you could source your veggie protein from closer to home, look no further than Hod Me Dod's.
Our volunteer Chantal was intrigued by Hod Me Dod's Quinoa Puffs, and came across the following recipe on ‘La Cuisine de Geraldine’ online. It gets our seal of approval!
150g puffed quinoa
200 g of dark chocolate, 70 %
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon almond butter
2 tablespoons of agave syrup
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler.
In a bowl, pour the puffed quinoa, melted chocolate, almond butter and agave syrup. Mix everything well.
Line a glass pan with baking paper. Then pour the puffed quinoa chocolate over the top, spreading it out and flattening it well. Then place in freezer for 1 hour.
Remove from freezer, remove baking paper and cut into 16 squares. Keep the chocolate and quinoa squares in the refrigerator.
