Organic Quinoa Tri-color 400g
What is quinoa
Quinoa, cultivated for 5000 years in the Andes, in today's Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile. It was the staple food of South American Indians living in high mountain areas. It owes its popularity to the fact that, as one of the few plants, it is able to survive at altitudes exceeding 3000 m above sea level, and thus low temperatures, intense sun, and even lack of water. Thanks to its unique properties, it is called by the Incas "the mother of all grains".
Quinoa belongs to the same plant family as spinach and beetroot, for example. Kindred, she is also with the extremely popular and valuable Amaranth and Canihu.
Included in the so-called superfoods, i.e. healthy and beneficial products for our body.
Tricolor quinoa is a blend of organic white, red and black quinoa.
How to prepare a tricolor Quinoa
Boil 1 cup of quinoa for 2 cups of water (for cooking red or black quinoa we use slightly less water, i.e. half a glass) and salt a little. After approx. 12-15 minutes, white tails appear from the beans. This means that our quinoa is almost cooked. After removing it from the fire, leave it covered for about 15 minutes, until the Quinoa is sufficiently swollen and absorbs the remaining water.
Quinoa is an extremely versatile product, and its delicate flavor goes well with many dishes. You can eat it hot or cold, as an addition to salty and sweet dishes, salads, soups, casseroles, vegetarian cutlets, and even desserts.
