White Quinoa (1kg)



Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a highly nutritious grain-like seed that has gained popularity in recent years due to its health benefits and versatility in cooking. It is considered a superfood because it is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own.

Quinoa is also a good source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and several other vitamins and minerals. It is naturally gluten-free and can be easily incorporated into a variety of diets, including vegetarian and vegan diets.

Cooking quinoa is similar to cooking rice. Rinse the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer to remove any dirt or debris, then combine 1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water or broth in a pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the quinoa is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and serve as desired.

Quinoa can be used in a variety of dishes, such as salads, soups, stews, and casseroles. It can also be used as a substitute for rice or pasta in many recipes. Its mild and nutty flavour pairs well with a variety of spices and ingredients, making it a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.
