Quinoa is one of the most nutritious foods on earth. It is native to the Andes and was sacred to the Incas. It was called “Mother of all grains” for its nutritional properties. It is a very easily digested food and its complete protein contains all essential amino acids. Quinoa is a good source of unsaturated fatty acids, potassium, fibers, calcium and iron, as well as vitamin E, B-vitamins, magnesium and phosphorous.

Quinoa is gluten free, cholesterol free, low on the glycemic index, and easy to cook.

Cooking

Add one part of quinoa to two parts liquid in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cover. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, remove from the heat and let it stand still covered for 5 minutes. Fluff and serve. One cup raw yields about 4 cups cooked.

Uses

Quinoa seeds can be used to make porridge, omelets, salads, casseroles, soups, desserts or as a side dish. They are a nutritious alternative to rice, bulgur or couscous.
