Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a grain-like seed that becomes light and fluffy, with a chewy texture, when cooked. From a spinach-like plant (Chenopodium quinoa) native to South America, these tiny seeds—as well as the plant’s leaves—have been used as a food source since ancient times. Quinoa is known for its remarkable nutritional value, including its fiber and protein content.

 

How to cook

Simply combine 1 cup of seeds with 2 cups of water and boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and enjoy as a side dish or use in your favorite recipes.

 

Meal ideas

  • Enjoy as a side dish or in recipes (such as stuffed peppers)
  • Add to soup, chili or stuffing
  • Combine with chopped veggies for a salad
  • Use in place of couscous for tabouleh
  • Make a breakfast porridge with quinoa, fruit, nuts, cinnamon and almond milk
  • Use in baked goods recipes

pretty good I mix this with the white vitacost quinoa and it is quite yummy September 24, 2014
Good value Product good. Really rinsed it but still a bit bitter. No instructions on package for cooking. Like that it's organic non-gmo. September 21, 2014
Healthy and Non-GMO great product Red Quinoa has such a wonderful flavour and has so many uses...Quinoa Pilaf, Quinoa Fruit Salad and so much more.... This is wonderful tasting! September 8, 2014
Lots of sand to crunch on!! I've personally never come across quinoa with sooooo much sand or rocks in it! The quinoa itself is fine, but my teeth are super unhappy with this! That horrible feeling when you chew on sand/rocks is like nails on a chalkboard! Plus, this quinoa is actually overpriced because it's only 12 oz. not a pound...so don't be fooled. (Not to mention that I get it for a full pound a dollar cheaper a bag locally...hmmm. And yes it's organic.) So besides the price, maybe it was just my bag that was horribly full of sand and just a fluke. Good luck! September 2, 2014
Delicious Great price, great product. August 20, 2014
