Quinoa (keen-wa) was a staple of the ancient Incas and means "the mother grain". It's high in iron and has a distinctive flavor and fluffy texture. It makes a tasty choice for casseroles, pilafs and even salads when cooked.
- 2 cups water.
- 1 cup Arrowhead Mills Quinoa
Rinse quinoa thoroughly either by using a strainer or by running fresh water over the quinoa in a pot and draining. Rinsing is recommended to wash away any naturally occurring bitter tasting saponins* remaining after processing. Place quinoa and water in a 1 1/2 qt. saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed (10 to 15 min.). When done, grains will be translucent and the outer germ layer will separate. Use basic quinoa in any favorite rice or grain recipe.
Makes 3 cups.
*Saponins are soap-like substances that occur on the outside of the quinoa grains. It is believed they are put there by nature to deter insects and birds.
Store in a cool dry place.

High quality grain, I just wish they would start using non-toxic paint on the packaging (can't help notice the smell). I'd suggest you refill it into some other bag upon arrival. Other than that, this Quinoa is great.
This was my first time trying this product. It was a little strange eating it at first but I got used to it. I made it into a salad with vegies and dressing really good.
Crazy for this Quinoa!

I absolutely love this product! I love how easy it is to make. Just follow the instructions. I haven't messed up cooking it so far! As for taste. I think it's a great compliment to my curry and stir fry dishes, I like the way it pick up the flavors of the dish. Very delicious and filling. I'll buy this again. :)
Not an impressive price though
