Organic Black Quinoa
Royal quinoa is a premium quality seed and is cultivated in the region of Potosi in Bolivia. It is recognizable by its larger grains and its fluffier texture. This superfood, called the mother of all grains in quechua, is known for its nutritional richness and as a complete plant-based protein!
Ingredients: Organic white royal quinoa grain
Rinse with cold water. Toast the grains in a bit of olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes. For 1 cup of quinoa, add 1.5 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes (or until all water is absorbed).
Do I need to rinse the quinoa?
The quinoa possesses a natural protective coating, called the saponin, that has a bitter taste. We do our best to ensure that effective methods are used to prewash the quinoa. However, the level of this bitter taste differs from one harvest to the other, and so we highly recommend to always rinse the quinoa thoroughly before cooking it.
