Quinoa is a “pseudo-grain”—actually a gluten-free seed, but used in cooking like any whole grain. This nutrient-rich grain is a wonderful source of complete protein, providing all of the essential amino acids. It is also a good source of dietary fiber. Naturally gluten free, this powerful little grain is a great addition to any diet, but is an ideal solution for those following a gluten free, vegan or vegetarian diet that are looking to increase their protein and fiber. Quinoa is delicious on its own and the earthy flavour of quinoa makes it ideal for pilafs, soups and salads.
Unlike many whole grains, quinoa takes very little time to prepare and can be substituted anywhere whole grains are used. It can be a nutritious alternative to white rice for most recipes. Use it for a hot breakfast cereal or add uncooked quinoa to breads for a delightful crunch. No matter how you serve it, quinoa is a wonderful healthy addition to your menu.

Due to the fact that it has a low glycemic index, quinoa does not contribute to raising the blood sugar level. This amazing grain is also very rich in many minerals that are often hard to come by, like magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc. Plus, it’s very easy to cook: you simply need to boil it in water or broth and serve it as is or as a side dish.
