Cultivating the world’s finest quinoa

13,000 feet up on the arid, desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia, traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted “quinoa real,” or royal quinoa, an ancient variety grown only in this very spot. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incas that they called it “chisaya mama” or “mother grain.” When you taste our fluffy, flavorful Royal Pearl Quinoa, you’ll understand why.

As committed food activists, we travel far and wide to bring you the world’s most exotic, delicious and sustainable foods.

Suggested Use

Cooking Instructions

1 cup quinoa + 1 ½ cups liquid = 4 servings

Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place quinoa and water or stock in a medium saucepan.

Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and germ has spiraled out, about 15 minutes.

Flavor tip: Before adding liquid, sauté quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.

Other Ingredients

100% organic royal white quinoa*.

*100 Fair for Life Fair Trade certified ingredient, certified by IMO

Solid Quinoa from Good Company

Posted by wholefoods on Aug 15, 2012

I have ordered this product several times. This product is a good tasting quinoa at a decent price. The quinoa always tastes fresh and cooks up well. I also trust the brand, Equal Exchange. I appreciate that they source products from community co-ops and offer their products at good prices. I will order this product again.

Yum!

Posted by Susamedusa on Sep 26, 2011

As a vegetarian protein is hard to come by, but Quinoa helps me get what I need. There is a cheaper one from Now Foods, and this one tastes just the same at that one.

i love the fact that i can eat quinoa as much as i want without the guilt! the texture and taste is similar to coarse cornmeal. when cooked, it appears fluffier compared to other brands. i love it!
