my fave quinoa
So I bought all variants from the shop's brand and Red quinoa is probably my favorite by far because of its relatively much intense flavor compared to the other two colors. I like the other two as well as, like, on their own but the red I use it mainly on my grain salads or if I'm feeling up for a hearty carb load. Restock soon!
