The amazing breakfast loaf is vegan, high in protein and gluten free – but best of all, it’s melt-in-your mouth delicious, especially when served in the morning with avocado dip, says Teresa.

The loaf is incredible versatile too, doubling as a pancake or pizza base, and ridiculously easy to make.

Teresa walks you through the process in our exclusive video.

All you need to join in the fun is a food processor and the ingredients below:

300gm raw quinoa
60g chia
¼ cup olive oil or coconut oil
bicarbonate soda
lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
pumpkin or sunflower seeds
rosemary/thyme (or another optional aromatic)

1 Start by soaking the quinoa and chia seeds overnight.
2 Add the quinoa and chia into the food processer, along with the olive [coconut] oil, a little water, bicarbonate soda, half a cup of water, a little lemon [or apple cider vinegar, and salt.
3 For a more aromatic flavour, you can also add in rosemary, thyme, or any other herb you prefer.
4 Mix all the ingredients for three minutes, then pour into a lined baking tin.
5 Garnish with a little sunflower or pumpkin seeds (optional).
6 Bake at 160° for 90mins.
