Dancourt Organic Red Quinoa 1KG (10)


Quinoa is a high-altitude plant which is native to South America. It has been cultivated and eaten for thousands of years, prized by the Incans.  This Red Quinoa, technically a seed not a grain, is Organically grown in the cool, arid mountain regions of Bolivia. With a firmer texture and slightly earthier flavour than white Quinoa, Organic Red Quinoa is a high protein food. Colourful, nutritious and scrumptious.


How to Use:

Organic Red Quinoa can be served hot or cold in place of rice or couscous. Use it to accompany stir-fries and curries, in soups and hotpots, serve herbed with fresh fish, and create wonderful salads as main meals or side dishes. Try as a delicious replacement for cracked wheat in Tabouli, or with goat’s cheese, olives, capers and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Add raw to bread and muffin recipes, or mix pre-cooked Quinoa with shredded coconut as a substitute for oats on top of yummy grain-free fruit crumbles.

1 cup of dried Quinoa will cook up to be about 3 cups. Rinse well under cold water (use a fine mesh sieve). Place drained Quinoa in saucepan of cold water at a ratio is 1:2. Cover and bring to a boil, turn the heat down to low and set the lid ajar. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until Quinoa is tripled in size, tender, with ‘tails’ popping out. Once cooked, turn off the heat, put the lid on and let sit for about 5 minutes. Use a fork to fluff up the Quinoa and serve.
