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." Our Royal Rainbow Quinoa adds color, crunch and creativity to any plate.
1 cup quinoa + 2 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 20 minutes.
Flavor tip: Before adding liquid, sauté quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.

I love the taste of the red alot better and this has a grit to it, even though I wash it alot. The red is so much easier.
A great alternative to rice, pasta or potatoes. Organic, too! Easy preparation. Makes a colorful presentation on the plate. Great texture with toasty, nutty and crunchy flavor. Gluten free, very low sodium and 3 grams fiber per serving. Fair trade certified.

I had trouble with my first pack of quinoa as it turned out too soggy but I finally plucked up the courage to try this other brand. Love the taste and the color and yes will buy more in the future!

Taste it great, I dont even need to wash, just pop it in my rice cooker add a bit mor water than if I was cooking rice (makes it more fluffy),. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because it is a bit pricey for the amount you get.
