Quinoa is an ancient grain known for its nutritious, edible seeds. The seeds are rinsed in water and cooked similarly to rice. When prepared in boiling water on the stovetop, quinoa can be ready in as little as 15 to 20 minutes. It will have a fluffy texture and a mild, nutty flavor once cooked. Easy to incorporate into any dish, quinoa is also naturally gluten free, so it will suit many different types of recipes and dietary needs.
This item is gluten-free per the manufacturer.

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 red quinoa contains healthy manganese and magnesium.
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!

People Talk About:quinoa organic great little love red colors healthy flavor happy
I love to use this organic red quinoa on lots of dishes. my customers really love the healthy option and being organic, it's a big seller. webstaurant ships fast and it's delicious.
Gorgeous color, lovely nutty rich flavor. This organic quinoa is a nice change from the more common grains we have used in the past! It is very inexpensive - especially for organic - it is loaded with vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants!
I'm so happy that the Webstaurant store carries quinoa, and how lucky am I that they carry all three colors! I do have to admit though, the red is my least favorite. Even when cooked alone, about half of the little seeds end up looking like the white quinoa. And it's not as striking as the black quinoa. But nutrition-wise, quinoa is quinoa, and it is nice to mix up the colors every once in a while. Good quality in terms of taste and preparation (haven't found any little pebbles so far). I forgot to wash it the first time I used it and no soapy taste that you sometimes get with other brands (which comes from the outer part of the quinoa if it hasn't been washed). Now that I know that, it cuts down on time to prepare because I'll just add water, no need to wash it three times like I used to!
I'm really happy with this 5 pound box of organic red quinoa it's really great I like to put mine in a pan and toast it off a little bit before I add the water to give it a little better flavor it's really great
I love cooking with red quinoa! The price and quality are great and I love having it in bulk since I eat it so much!
