Absolute Organic Mixed Quinoa 400g
Quinoa (pronounced 'keen-wah') was originated from the ancient times, going back to the Inca civilization. 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 organically gluten-free, wheat-free, easy to digest and is one of the least allergenic foods existing. A resourceful product, quinoa can be an alternative for almost any grain in any recip.
Before use, be sure to wash the quinoa thoroughly to remove the saponin which is a natural bitter seed coating that the quinoa has.
Add 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water or stock, bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 15mins. Once cooked a tiny white spiral appears encircling the grain. It is a great alternative to rice so use it to accompany stir-frys or meat dishes and in soups and stews. It is also great in baking particularly cakes, muffins, porridge and salads.
