Quinoa is rich in fiber, higher in protein than any other grain, gluten free, low on glycemic index, heart healthy and very tasty.
Melissa’s Cooked Quinoa makes it easier than ever before to enjoy nutty, chewy satisfying quinoa. Store this pre-cooked quinoa at room temperature, and when ready to use simply remove the wrapper, slice and if desired, reheat in the microwave or oven, or on the stove top.
Vegan, gluten-free, protein- and fiber-rich, Cooked Quinoa tastes delicious at any time of day. For breakfast, warm the slices and top with jam and berries. Use rounds instead of “bread” for a grilled cheese or other warm sandwich. For an easy, healthy take on lasagna, cut vertically, layer with cheese and ragu, and bake. The possibilities are endless.
Pronounced “keen-wah,” this superfood is technically a seed, but for all practical purposes it is considered a grain and is cooked like rice or couscous. Melissa’s Cooked Quinoa is the quickest, easiest way to enjoy this delicious food. Because Cooked Quinoa does not need to be refrigerated until opened, it is the perfect item to have as a pantry staple.
