Red Quinoa is one of healthy grains in the marketplace. It’s heritage can be traced back to the ancient Aztec culture, where it was considered a super food that promoted energy and stamina.
Quinoa is rich in fiber, higher in protein than any other grain, gluten free, low on glycemic index, heart healthy and very tasty. It cooks up quickly into a fluffy texture with a pleasant earthy flavor.
Nutritionally there is no difference between red and golden quinoa; and the red variety retains its color during the cooking process for great visual appeal. Use quinoa as one would use rice; it can be served by itself, mixed with vegetables or as an ingredient in stir fry and casseroles.
Store quinoa in sealed plastic or glass containers in a cool, dark, dry pantry. Quinoa will stay fresh for about one year.
