Quinoa—pronounced keen-wah—is a grain, but not just any grain. It is considered to be almost a complete food. It is very high in protein, full of vitamins, gluten and wheat free, cholesterol-free and usually organic. And it is simply delicious.
In the kitchen, quinoa has a huge range of uses and lends itself beautifully to so many dishes. When cooked, it has a very delicate texture and is lovely in soups and sweets, and makes wonderful salads, pasta, breads and delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals.
It is simple to prepare, easy to digest and most enjoyable to eat.
