Organic black quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) was once called “the gold of the Incas” for increasing the stamina of Incan warriors. Quinoa is a naturally gluten-free seed that behaves like a grain when cooked. It’s a delicious, nutrient-rich alternative to rice or couscous. Our organic quinoa is grown wild and free of any pesticides and chemicals. Black quinoa has all the same health benefits of golden quinoa.

How to Cook Black Quinoa

This quinoa is not pre-rinsed. You need to first soak in warm water for 5 minutes, wash, drain, and rinse several times. If you don’t have the right size sieve, you can always put the quinoa in a bowl, add the warm water, soak, and then spill off as much water as you can before starting again. To cook, mix 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Health Benefits of Black Quinoa

Quinoa, the “mother grain,” is an extremely nutritious seed. It has a protein value that is extremely high (12-18%) and the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one’s protein need than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron.

You can also make quinoa flour by grinding the seeds.

Black and golden quinoa are nutritionally identical. Black quinoa lends a rich color to your recipes.

Store quinoa in sealed plastic or glass containers in a cool, dark, dry cabinet. Quinoa will stay fresh for one year if properly stored.

I don’t like quinoa but since it’s a complete food containing all nine essential amino acids; I force myself to eat it. Actually, when I toast the quinoa in a dry skillet before cooking it improves the taste but the mouth feel is still gross on all brands but it has too much upside not to eat it.
