super grain: red and white quinoa

Pronounced "keen-wa" , this miracle whole grain has more good press then brown rice. It's full of protein and iron and comes equipped with a bite/crunch/pop of goodness. Make sure to rinse the grain before boiling, and be sure not to over cook or it will turn to mush! have fun. This variety mixed two colours inside one box....a lovely change from traditional quinoa.

1. sautee veggies and goodies that you love
2. add suggested water and quinoa (according to box & cooking insructions)
3. let simmer and absorb all your favourite flavours
4. serve in a pretty dish.
5.'s good for you


  1. I use white quinoa all the time I've never seen the red before! Will have to look for it. Looks great :)

  2. I *heart* quinoa! I make a cold Greek-salad version with cukes, peppers, onion, olives & feta. Olive oil and apple cider vinegar to dress. Yum!
