Nutra Organics Quinoa is a pure product. No chemical refining or bleaching here, and nothing artificial added, just pure wholefood goodness.
What’s so good about it? Quinoa is a grain crop grown for its edible seeds. Quinoa is not a cereal grain, but a pseudo-cereal more related to beetroot and spinach than rice or wheat. It is naturally gluten-free and is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein.
How is it made? The organic black heirloom quinoa grains are usually harvested by hand and sustainably grown on the Bolivian Altiplano.
Serving Suggestion: Add to salads, stews and fritters. Use in place of rice and grains. You can even use it as a delicious base for a gluten-free choc mud cake!
Measure and wash your quinoa well. Bring quinoa, water (Ratio 1 cup quinoa: 1.5 cups water) and a pinch of Himalayan salt to a rapid boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer for 15 mins (until the water has absorbed). Take off the heat and set aside for 10 mins. Fluff with a fork and serve – delicious with olive oil or butter mixed through just prior to serving.
