Cultivating the world's finest quinoa

13,000 feet up on the arid, desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia, traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted "quinoa real," or royal quinoa, an ancient variety grown only in this very spot. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incas that they called it "chisaya mama" or "mother grain." This Royal Red Quinoa adds a nutty, nutritious bright spot to any meal.


Directions

1 cup quinoa + 1½ cups liquid =  4 servings

  • Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place quinoa and wter or stock in a medium saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and germ has spiraled out, about 20 minutes.

Flavor tip: Before adding liquid, saute quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.

Best price, best quality Love this quinoa. I cook with shijiki and shiitake and eat with 1 tbs of coconut oil mixed in. I would not buy any other quinoa. August 10, 2013
Great taste and full protein Nutritionally, you can't do better than red quinoa. Use instead of or combine with rice. Rinse well in a fine colander before cooking for the best taste. December 31, 2012
Robust Red This is really good stuff!..It has a somewhat better taste than the white quinoa. Although, sometimes I like to mix the two together. It's a great gluten-free alternative to couscous and had the ability to be as versatile as rice (eg.,as pilaf style -adding peas, carrots, julliened sundried tomatoes or chiffonade basil;of course you can add whatever you like). The other advantage is the high protein content, making it a well-rounded well-balanced food. January 12, 2012
