    Maybe the Best Quinoa Available

    Posted by HawaiianViking on Apr 07, 2013

    If you're reading this, you probably already know that Quinoa is something that you ought to be eating; It's nature's most perfect protein, and it's worth noting that it's especially high in Lysine, a quality that's somewhat rare in plant-based protein. Compared to white varieties, Red Quinoa has a slightly earthier, nuttier flavor. It can be prepared simply, as rice, but I like it best when it's cooked with coconut milk, as part of a vegetarian curry; Try adding macadamias to your prepared quinoa — it's delicious. I like that Alter Eco, Red Quinoa, is both organic and fairly-traded, and the price is reasonable. I only wish that it were available in larger quantities.

    First Quinoa Experience

    Posted by Reviewer2418830 on Sep 25, 2011

    I recipe I have called for red quinoa. I've never tried it before but was happy that it was so simple to make and not at all bitter like some people have reported. I gave it a simple rinse in a strainer. It's delicious and the texture is awesome. Would buy it again and love that's it's fair trade, organic and a perfect food!

    very good

    Posted by Reviewer1310601 on Dec 22, 2011

    I wanted to loose the 5 lbs that I have been trying to loose, so I did an experiment. I added approx 1 cooked cup of quinoa to one of my meals daily, I mixed it with the regular food that I was used to eating and yes, the weight did come off! I believe I have lost another pound this past week and it is the week before Christmas. I love the taste of this and you can spice it up in so many different ways. It has a slightly sweet, nutty taste to it. Now my husband wants to eat it daily.

    Well worth the price

    Posted by Reviewer2701928 on Jun 06, 2012

    It's packed ull of nutrients and cooks fast. I consider it far superior to the white variety. The red quinoa is well worth the price; it is so much better, there is almost no comparison.

    Looks nice and tastes similar to white quinoa

    Posted by HDumas on Feb 11, 2014

    I use quinoa as a replacement for rice, couscous and sometimes flour. Most quinoa is the white-colored kernels. For cooking, sometimes having different colors can make a dish's presentation more appealing, so it's nice to have the red option. I find the taste between the red and white quinoa quite similar.
