Very nice flavour but much harder than white quinoa

- Wed 27th Aug 2014

Really nutty flavour but can be quite tough so I add it to white quinoa

Red Quinoa - Mon 2nd Jun 2014

This is a delicious quinoa, it isn't bitter & holds it's shape. It's grainy & tasty, when cold these seeds add a new dimension to a salad.

Quinoa surprise - Mon 13th May 2013

I said somewhere else on this site that I didn't like quinoa. I take it back. I discovered that you have to wash it well, and soak it for at least half an hour (though I do it overnight) because it is coated with something that makes it taste bitter otherwise. Decided to give it another go, and what a difference! Lovely, mildly nutty taste - similar to millet, which I really like. I am a quinoa convert.
