Although new to many of us, quinoa is a food grain with a long history, used by pre-Columbian Andean civilizations 3-to4,000 years ago.
Quinoa is high in protein, B vitamins and minerals; and is very low in gluten, putting quinoa on the radar for those of us with gluten-intolerance.
The flavour is pleasantly nutty, and it can be prepared like rice or sprouted to even further enhance the quinoa experience.
Ancient Harvest is the leading exponents of organic quinoa, and we’re featuring their Inca Red, Harmony Blend and Original Quinoa.
Quinoa can be easily popped and puffed. The result is a nutty, toasted taste. Eat by the handful, add to yogurt for some nutritious crunch, or make quinoa marshmallow squares! Here’s how to do it.
