Organic Black Quinoa


$14.95



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

Quinoa (pronounce Keen-wah) is a grain crop grown for its edible seeds. Quinoa is not a cereal grain, but a psuedo-cereal closer in relation 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. Sustainably grown on the Bolivian Altiplan, quinoa is usually harvested by hand at just the right time to avoid seed losses.

Add to salads, stews and fritters. Use in place of rice and grains. 

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 head and set aside for 10 mins. Fluff with a fork and serve - delicious with olive oil or butter mixed through prior to serving. 

Ratio: 1 cup quinoa : 1.5 cups water
