Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa), an ancient “grain” cultivated for thousands of years and highly prized by pre-Colombian Incan culture. A protein-rich nutritional powerhouse and superfood packed with manganese, magnesium, calcium and iron, quinoa’s “complete” proteins, contain all nine essential amino acids.
Though technically a seed, quinoa can be prepared as you would rice or barley, though always rinse quinoa well before cooking to remove its bitter outer coating. Simply cook 1 part quinoa in 2 parts boiling water or broth 15 to 20 minutes. The quinoa will blossom in size and add a nutty flavor to soups, salads and vegetable dishes.
