These tiny grains may be small, but quinoa — pronounced ‘kee-nwaa’— is actually a superfood because it contains all eight essential amino acids. It also contains lots of healthy fibres and iron, making it an incredible grain to introduce into your diet. This essential organic quinoa is a fantastic alternative to rice or couscous. It’s gluten-free and super-easy to prepare, so there’s really nothing not to love. To prepare these nutty grains, make sure you measure 1-part quinoa to 3 parts water. Bring the water to the boil and add the grains, before allowing to simmer for around 15 minutes. Once the quinoa bulks up in size, you’ll be ready to serve up in a salad or with a dish of your choice. Voila!
