Red quinoa has a rich, almost nutty flavour, and is slightly chewier and heartier in texture, than white quinoa. It holds it's shape well during cooking so is often the quinoa of choice for cold salads.
Quinoa is a modern day superfood, being one of very few plant foods that contains all nine amino acids, it is also rich in dietary fibre, B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, vitamin E and antioxidants. Naturally gluten-free with a low GI, quinoa is ideal for people prone to food allergies. High on the versatility scale, quinoa can be substituted for almost any grain in almost any recipe.
TO COOK: Rinse well. Boil 1 cup of quinoa with two cups of water or stock (for added flavour). Reduce heat to simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes.
