What Is  Organic Quinoa Grain?

Quinoa is similar to buckwheat in just as many ways as it is different. Just like Buckwheat Quinoa isn't a grain at all but rather a seed...at best it could be considered a pseudo-cereal.

It looks a bit like couscous and is as versatile as rice, but quinoa has a richer, nuttier flavour than either of them; its been eaten traditionally for generations and originates in South America where it has grown for more than 5,000 years in and around the Andes Mountains.

It is exceptionally healthy and orders of magnitude better for you than equivalent grains and again just like buckwheat as its not a grain, it doesn't produce gluten and as such is not classified as an allergen!


Why Should I Get Organic Quinoa Grain?

Quinoa "protein-packed" Grain, contains every amino acid and is particularly rich in lysine, which promotes healthy tissue growth throughout the body. Additionally Quinoa is also a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and fibre.

It fast became one of the biggest Wholefoods in the world for a reason. Quinoa is easy to prepare, absorbs flavour well, cooks quickly and to seal the deal it has a fluffy texture with a delicious yet subtle nutty flavour, which let me tell you makes for an excellent alternative to rice or couscous!

When cooked, it quadruples in size and becomes partially translucent which is great indicator that your ready to feast. Rice is a good benchmark as Quinoa can be prepared in much the same way and they behave very similarly, under the same conditions. It should usually be rinsed or soaked before use to remove its bitter coating.

To prepare, Bring two cups of water to the boil to one cup of grain, cover, simmer and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the germ separates from the seed. The cooked germ should have a slight bite to it and you're all set to go. Enjoy!
