Quinoa (pronounced keen-wá) is a grain-like seed. It was already cultivated over 5000 years ago in the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile.
The Quinoa grain comes closer to meeting the genuine protein requirements of the human body than either cow’s milk or soybeans. It is high in the amino acid lysine, which is lacking in most common cereals. Quinoa is not a true cereal grain it can be eaten by people who suffer from cereal grain allergies. Quinoa in its natural state has a saponin coating that has a bitter taste. This has to be removed before eating. Luckily we take care of this process
We have now a more efficient cost effective dry method for our quinoa cleaning. Quinoa original which needed washing at home is now replaced as Quinoa (ready to use) for no extra cost. This Quinoa has a very low eco friendly carbon footprint.
Cooking quinoa is easy! simply add 1cup quinoa to 2 cups water to a pan. Bring to boil and let simmer for 10 minutes until water has disappeared. Be careful not to cook for too long or at too high temperature because the quinoa can be overcooked very easily which can cause it to burst.
Quinoa has a light fluffy texture when cooked, has a mild nutty flavour
