Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) originates from the Andes and was eaten at the time of the Incan civilisation. Long ago, it was honored as the ‘mother of all grains’, now it is known as a ‘super grain’ due its excellent nutritional properties. Quinoa is a balanced-amino acid high source of rich protein. It is gluten-free, wheat-free, easy to digest and is one of the least allergenic foods existing. Quinoa is a great alternative for almost any grain in any recipe.
Before use, be sure to wash the quinoa thoroughly to remove the saponin which is a natural bitter seed coating that the quinoa has. Cook as you would for rice.
