Although Quinoa is often referred to as a grain, it is actually a seed. Quinoa is gluten-free and high in plant-based protein, fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Quinoa is one of the few foods that contain all 9 essential amino acids which makes it a complete protein. Our Quinoa is USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO Project Certified.
Quinoa is wonderful for cooking because it really adapts to any flavor. Whether it is in a sweet fruit-filled salad or a savory nourishing bowl it absorbs all the flavors of the dish. One helpful tip to enhance the flavor of your Quinoa is to rinse it well before cooking. Quinoa has a protective outer covering called saponin which leaves a bitter flavor if not rinsed well.
Quinoa makes an excellent porridge for breakfast, a protein-rich addition to any salad, or an accompaniment to your favorite stir-fry for dinner. At The Grain Market Academy, you can find many creative, and delicious ways to add this super seed to your daily diet.
