The Gold of the Incas, organic red quinoa was once called that for increasing the stamina of Incan warriors. Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and its mild, slightly nutty flavour makes it an alternative to rice or couscous.
It is a complete protein, is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. Excellent in pilafs or in salads. Cooked quinoa is a delicious stuffing for peppers or squash and can be used as a binder for vegetarian burgers or in turkey meatloaf.
