Organic Quinoa Grain


Pronounced "keen-wa". Quinoa is a complete protein grain (50% more than wheat), high in lysine, more iron, phosphorus, vitamins A, E and B, and more calcium and fat than other grains. Quinoa kernels have a waxy protective coating called saponin which will leave quinoa bitter unless rinsed off under running water before cooking. Expands to four times its volume when cooked. Combine with millet, bugler or buckwheat for variety. Substitute for bugler in tabouli. Makes a very light breakfast cereal.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a seed grain of the Chenepodium family.  It is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids.

Quinoa is light and tasty, easy to digest, and blends well with other ingredients.  It is perfect for people who are intolerant of wheat and gluten.

Here are a couple of recipes to try.  Feel free to add your favorite meat or meat substitute to these dishes.
