Organic Red Quinoa goes really well in salads and side dishes.
Organic Red Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has a nutty texture and makes for vibrant salads and side dishes. Organic red quinoa is a source of protein and iron so is a popular choice with vegans and vegetarians. It contains all the essential amino acids needed for human nutrition.
Organic red quinoa takes a little longer to cook than organic white quinoa and holds its shape more so goes particularly well in salads or mixed grain dishes.
Quinoa is a ‘pseudo-grain’ which means that although we use it as a grain it is actually a seed. This means it is higher in nutrients and protein than most grains.
Our organic red quinoa hails from Peru and is grown in the Andean Mountains where it has been a staple food for thousands of years. It works well in a wide range of sweet and savoury recipes.
