Quinoa

Quinoa, pronounced keen-wah, is considered “the supergrain of the future”.

Actually, it’s not a grain at all, but rather the seed of a leafy plant in the goosefoot family that’s distantly related to spinach.

As a complete protein, quinoa contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than most grains.

Quinoa has a mild flavor with a unique crunch, is gluten-free and a good source of magnesium, copper and folate.

Selecting and Storing Quinoa

Before cooking, rinse quinoa to remove its sap-like (saponin ) coating. Store quinoa in a tightly closed container in a cool, dry place.
