makes 50 chips


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Place quinoa in a large skillet over medium heat. Toast quinoa until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  3. Place 1 cup of quinoa and spices in a blender with a small splash of water and begin blending. Gradually add the rest of the water until a thick batter forms.

  4. Lightly brush a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Pour batter onto sheet. Spread batter out to 1/8-inch thick with a rubber spatula and sprinkle remaining quinoa over top. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes until edges of the dough are browned.

  5. Take dough out of the oven and allow to cool. Once cool enough to handle, cut dough into desired shapes. Place dough back onto baking sheet and return to the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes until chips are browned.
