Buckwheat Bread with Quinoa

Buckwheat Bread with Quinoa

I am starting to explore flours other than the common white all-purpose flour, that I have used for baking all along. There are so many great and healthy options that I want to discover and I have found so many great recipes and ideas lately.

I made a bread with buckwheat flour and quinoa flour and some small mashed potatoes. It is very tasty and quick and easy to make. Making bread yourself has such a fusty image in Germany which is sad. Homemade bread tastes so good! I also think it is a myth that baking your own bread takes a lot of time and effort. All wrong. But in the 15 minutes you can also create a big mess in the kitchen. Flour all over the place it was until I found out that you can also mix flour and water in a bowl rather than creating a crater of flour and fill water in it on a table. I thought it looked kinda fancy…
