QUINOA BLEND - Kosher/Gluten Free

QUBD-10

Description:

Quinoa Blend is a mixture of our red quinoa, black quinoa and golden quinoa. This colorful blend of quinoas contains more protein than any other grain and is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. Our quinoa blend is higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than other grains, so it provides a balanced source of vital nutrients. Quinoa is high in Vitamins B & E, iron, zinc, potassium and calcium. Our quinoa has been washed to remove any natural saponins (bug repellent) on the grains, therefore no rinsing before cooking is necessary.

Use this colorful quinoa blend in place of straight quinoa to add more depth to your recipe.

Ingredient Statement:

Quinoa.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Quinoa must be rinsed to remove the bitter saponins which coat each grain. For best results, toast prior to cooking. 1 cup of quinoa needs 2 cups water; simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. The grain will pop and the outside germ will separate into a curly tail.

One cup dry yields 2 cups cooked.
