Nutra Organics Black Quinoa is a pure product. No chemical refining or bleaching here, and nothing artificial added, just pure whole food goodness.

What’s so good about it? Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wah) 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? Quinoa was an important crop for the Incan empire. They referred to it as the ‘mother of all grains’ and believed it to be sacred. The organic black heirloom grains are usually harvested by hand and sustainably grown on the Bolivian Altiplano.

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 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. Ratio 1 cup quinoa: 1.5 cups water.
