100% Organic Quinoa

Suggestion of Use:

Quinoa has a natural coating, called saponin, that can make the cooked grain taste bitter or soapy. It’s easy to get rid of this coating just by rinsing the quinoa just before cooking.

Use quinoa just as you would with any other grain, like rice or barley! It makes a fantastic side dish for almost any meal, especially when we cook it with broth instead of water and add a bay leaf to the pot. Quinoa can also be used in casseroles, breakfast porridges, and salads.
