What is Quinoa?

With the new organic health movement pushing less meat and more vegetables in our diets, there is still a great need for natural and affordable foods that are high in protein. The search for a healthy, organic alternative to meat has seemingly come to an end with the discovery of quinoa.

Quinoa Shopping Tip

Stock up on quinoa and have it available for the days you are tired of rice or pasta. It's a great substitute for rice, beans, cereal, bulgar, or couscous.

Quinoa Cooking Tip

The general rule is to add one part quinoa to two parts liquid in a saucepan. One cup of quinoa will take about 15 minutes.
