ORGANIC BLACK QUINOA Sale
Quinoa, often categorized as a superfood, has long been prized for its nutrition- the Incas referred to Quinoa as the mother of all grains. Although commonly referred to as a grain, Quinoa is actually a seed that grows in a rainbow of colors, from white to black to red to green and many colors in between. When cooked, quinoa is soft and fluffy, with a slightly nutty taste. It can also be milled into flour, rolled into flakes and used to make various foods like pasta and bread. Black quinoa has more of an earthy flavour than white quinoa and is a little sweeter. This organic product is GMO free, and contains no preservatives or artificial flavours.

Black quinoa can be enjoyed hot or cold. It holds its shape well during cooking, and is a great addition to hot or cold salads and wraps. It works well as a substitute for rice in many dishes. You could prepare a large amount and keep it in the fridge for quick use. To prepare, rinse the quinoa and place in a pot with 2 parts water. Bring to the boil over medium heat, and then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 20 minutes. Remove the pot from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes so it turns out nice and fluffy.
