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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
I liked it very much. It was the first time for me to try Quinoa, so I did not know what to expect. But the taste and the texture were really nice! I just boiled it fo 15 minutes and mixed with some cooked vegetables (paprika, onion, selery, tomato, cauliflower and zucchini) It was delicious!!! Will try another brands to compare.
