Simply rinse and cook this nutritious pantry staple as you would rice – using one cup of quinoa to 1 ¾ cups of water or broth – for 20 minutes or until deliciously soft and tender. And treasure your own little pot of Incan gold.
ROAR white quinoa is picked by the local tribes in the Andes and then is rinsed and polished to remove the soapy/bitter saponin on the outside of the seed.
Quinoa is a good source of protein containing all 9 essential amino acids. It is particularly high in Lysine, which is not common in cereal plant foods, making it especailly valuable for vegetarians wanting to get a complete mix of essential amino acids in their diet. It is also a good source of fibre and micro nutrients. Even NASA has approved it as a food to be used in space!
