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.

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.

Good to replace white rice

I love how nutty it tastes; but I prefer the colour of the tri-coloured pack. I believe the difference isn't much.

This is the BEST Quinoa

Posted by 4807018600475821485 on Jul 22, 2016 | Verified Purchase

Alter Eco Quinoa cooks up perfectly every time! Flavor is amazing and it fluffs up just right. Cheaper Quinoa gets mushy or sticky, and has an off flavor. I cook it it using two cups of Quinoa to three cups of water. Rinse Quinoa first, sitting in the water for about a minute. Bring water to a boil, add Quinoa and a pinch of salt. Cook for 20 minutes, then fluff with fork immediately, leave pot covered, fluff up again after ten minutes. Make a big batch.It keeps in the fridge five days. Add some to your oatmeal, or mix with steamed veggies. This Quinoa rocks!
