Highly nutritious Organic White Quinoa will become a cupboard-staple in no time! Small, golden beads that cook up in 10-15 minutes in boiling water, white quinoa turns fluffy and tender. Slightly nutty in flavour and milder than red quinoa, white quinoa can be added to both sweet and savoury dishes. As a side dish, salad, or as a bed for a grilled piece of fish or meat, white quinoa is extremely versatile and easily replaces white starches, such as pasta and rice. Keep your cupboard well-stocked with this pantry essential!
MAY CONTAIN: PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, SOY
HEALTH BENEFITS: PACKING A NUTRITIONAL PUNCH!
A complete protein, white quinoa is loaded with all 9 essential amino acids! Quinoa also contains almost twice as much fiber as other grains. It is high in iron, lysine, magnesium, manganese, and riboflavin – all of which help to keep our cells, bones, and muscles healthy.
CULINARY TWIST: TABBOULEH AND BEYOND!
Whether we are adding white quinoa to a salad of greens and veggies, or making it the star of a salad with herbs and tomatoes, we love all the ways quinoa can go! Adding a cup-full of cooked white quinoa to a bean salad or a kale salad is an easy way to boost flavour and nutrition. One of our favourite ways to use white quinoa is in a basic tabbouleh salad recipe. The white quinoa bulks up the salad and adds texture! The fluffy and tender seeds soak up the olive oil, lemon juice, and natural juices from the tomatoes, making every bite savoury and delectable!
ABOUT QUINOA: DID YOU KNOW?
Quinoa comes in three main colours: red and white being most common and black. The black variety tends to cook longer than the others and is slightly firmer in texture. Though quinoa cooks like a grain, it is actually a seed related to beets!
