Easy to incorporate into any dish, quinoa is also naturally gluten free, so it will suit many different types of recipes and dietary needs.

"Black quinoa really does make a statement! I like to mix some in with white quinoa (1 part black to 2 or 3 parts white), but if you want to make a dramatic side I would make all black quinoa and add in some brightly colored food, like raw red bell pepper or edamame."Read More Reviews
Closely related to the amaranth grain, quinoa can be used in soups, salads, or stuffed squash. Mix it with risotto, vegetables, or fresh herbs. It can even be used in granola or flavorful breakfast bowls with fresh fruits and milk.
Quinoa grows in different colors, and although the taste is similar among the varieties, you can choose the color that is appealing for your recipe. Additionally, this black quinoa contains healthy fatty acids.
Nutritious Protein Source
Quinoa is an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarian and vegan dishes. It is a complete protein, meaning that it provides all nine essential amino acids for a healthy diet. It is high in beneficial antioxidants, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Simple to Prepare
Before cooking, rinse the quinoa under cold water. Pour it in a pan with water, and add a pinch of salt to taste. Place the pan on medium heat and bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer for 10-15 minutes. Once the liquid is absorbed, remove the quinoa and fluff it with a fork. Then this delicious quinoa is ready to serve in your signature dishes and salads!

1 out of 1 found this review helpfulThis is my first time trying black quinoa. My son ground it into flour and made double chocolate chip cookies with it! Not only is it a healthy alternative to all the wheat we have used in the past, but it has a nice nutty flavor and gives the cookies a beautiful dark color!

I am very enthusiastic about this purchase. The box arrived quickly and the Black Quinoa looks to be of very high quality. I highly recommend you try it too! Comes in a zip tied plastic bag inside of a small sealed box (inside of a shipping box too of course).
