Quinoa - Black


Black Quinoa is a blend of black, white, tan and brown quinoa.

Quinoa (Keen-wah) was a staple Incan food and has been grown in the Andes for centuries.  The United Nations World Health Organization observes that quinoa is closer to the ideal protein balance than any other grain. It's equal to milk in protein and is high in vitamins B and E, iron, zinc, potassium, calcium and essential amino acids.

Quinoa has become popular in the U.S. due to it's interesting texture, great peanut like flavor and nutritional superiority. When cooked, the thin germ circlet falls from the seed and remains crunchy while the grain, pearly and translucent, melts in your mouth. Quinoa's mild flavor is a good substitute for couscous or bulgur in many dishes.

Suggested Use: The versatility of Black Quinoa allows it to be served alone as a side-dish or as part of a main entree. It is a great substitute for couscous, bulgur or rice in recipes. In addition, sprouted Quinoa has a delicate, nutty flavor that's delicious in cold salads.

Preparation: Bring 2 cups water or stock to a boil. Add 1 cup of quinoa, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes. The grain will pop and the outside germ will separate into a curly tail. One cup dry yields 2 cups cooked.

Note: Quinoa - Black is sold in 12 ounce bags.
