Becoming more and more popular, quinoa is found today in many households and restaurants. Simple to prepare, with unique taste and texture. Very easy to cook, tasty and mixes with meat and fish, and can also be enjoyed in salads! Ideal as an accompaniment, an original alternative to pasta and rice.

Known as "Inca Rice" or the "mother of all grains", quinoa has been grown for more than 5000 years BC. Quinoa is used as a grain, although it is part of the Chenopodiaceae, such as spinach and beetroot. Quinoa seeds look like small, slightly yellow discs.

high quality quinoa
We have this regularly and for variety, alternating with rice and pasta. It has a nice flavor that also goes well with viands and veggies, plus healthier pa.

Amazing
I just had to try it at home when I once tasted a meal with quinoa and roasted lamb leg in one of the French restaurants I frequented before. And I'm so glad I did cause now I can have it whenever I crave it. I get to vary it, too with the tricolor one.
