Quinoa, a vegetable ingredient often used in the preparation of savory recipes, can also be used in the preparation of desserts. In our recipe we decided to flavor it using star anise, and then combined it with type 1 flour and whole cane sugar.
The delicate aroma of star anise, which vaguely recalls the flavor of licorice, goes perfectly with the flavor of whole cane sugar which, as always, gives the desserts a very special flavor. The star anise quinoa patty is perfect for soaking at breakfast, but it is also well suited to be consumed as a snack in the middle of the day.
