Quinoa is a light and fluffy 'grain' that can be used in the same way as riceAverage Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
Quinoa is not really a cereal at all, but it is an edible seed from chenopodium, a grain like crop which has these nutritious seeds. Quinoa can be used as the carb part of any meal using it where you would use rice, pasta, potatoes or couscous. Quinoa is often referred to as nutritious because it is rich in amino acids and of course quinoa is so simple to prepare and tastes so fluffy and creamy with a slightly crunchy texture. You'll just have to try it to know what I mean.
Rinse and strain. Place in a pan of water, bring to the boil , add salt if you need it, although you find it tastes great without, and simmer for 10-15 mins.Turn off the heat and let it rest for 5-6 minutes. When cooked the grain releases its white germ.
Use as a side dish, in salads, to make veg croquettes and for stuffing vegetables etc.
Just organic quinoa grain and nothing else.

Quinoa Grain Pudding 2 cups quinoa, cooked (basic recipe) ½ cups raisins 3 cups milk ½ cup shredded coconut 1/3-cup honey or ½ cup brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla ½ cup almonds or walnuts, ground 3 eggs, beaten ½ tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp salt ½ tsp lemon or orange rind, grated 1 Tbs butter 1 tsp lemon juice Combine all ingredients. Pour into greased baking dish or greased individual custard cups. Bake in 350-degree oven until set, about 45 minutes. Serve hot or cold, topped with yogurt, cream or apple juice. Serves 4-6. This recipe was borrowed from an old favorite that originally called for rice. Quinoa substitutes nicely to almost any recipe designed for rice.
This makes a lovely protein rich addition to a simple homemade vegetable soup. Adds a nutty taste and texture too.

Great price and handy small pack. The quinoa seeds seem small compared to other brands

I try to soak these completely, the longer the better for me otherwise they stick in my teeth and the bitterness with the crunch doesn't really do it for me. I find soaking makes them more malleable for cooked foods unless using for a crunchy top layer which they are good for too.

Really love this versatile and nutritious grain - well I think it's a grain! Anyway, it is easy to prepare and good as an accompaniment to any meal especially those that go well with rice and/or pasta. Nice on it's own or with sultanas or bits of veg . . . or whatever you fancy . . . mixed in. It also makes a tasty and light meal when mixed with fish, cold meats or nuts - really delicious. My favourite is mixing it with tinned mackerel, chunks of orange, a bit of natural yogurt and (the secret ingredient) a little curry powder. Served with a fresh salad - love it!!

This Quinoa is comparable to other more expensive brands. We love it in soup or mixed with Cous Cous instead of potatoe.

I am just getting into eating more quinoa and preparing it myself, and these appear to be good quality.

Washing and soaking is essential to make Quinoa more palatable, soak for at least and hour, overnight is even better.
