Quinoa Pancakes Recipe from the Pueblo Hotel at Machu Picchu
These pancakes are a favorite among our guest who travel to Peru and stay at the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel at Aguas Calientes. Here is the recipe directly from the hotel's kitchen so you can recreate them in your own home!
 
QUINOA PANCAKE
INGREDIENTS:

Provecho!

Quinoa is a highly versatile, gluten-free grain native to the South American Andes.  Used in the Americas for thousands of years, it has gained popularity today for its high protein content and nutritional value.  Did you know that 2013 has been dubbed the 'Year of Quinoa' by the United Nations? Use the hashtag #yearofquinoa to search for and share quinoa recipes on twitter or instagram. And be sure to share with @wildtravel as well - our handle on twitter and instagram!

Keeping it wild and tasty,
