Epicureal - Organic White Quinoa
Quinoa is the most ancient American staple grain with a complete protein profile and gluten-free. It is highly nutritious, easily digestible, and has a distinct grassy flavour and aroma and a slightly crunchy texture when cooked. Quinoa can be cooked and enjoyed like rice but needs rinsing prior to cooking in order to remove excess bitterness. It is excellent in pilafs or in salads such as tabbouleh. Cooked quinoa is a delicious stuffing for peppers or squash and can be used as a binder for vegetarian burgers or in turkey meatloaf.
