Quinoa is a quick-cooking, grain-like seed with a mild, slightly nutty flavor and a unique, soft and fluffy yet slightly toothsome texture. Our Black Quinoa is a visually attractive, naturally dark colored quinoa with the same great flavor and complete nutritional value as white quinoa.
Bring 2 cups water a boil. Add 1 cup black quinoa, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. The grain will pop and the outside germ will separate into a curly tail. Drain excess water and spread on a sheet pan to cool or use immediately.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Black Quinoa has the distinctive nutty flavor and nutritional profile of other quinoa. The crunchier texture is an excellent compliment to tender roasted root vegetables. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar and spicy chile flakes givd this warm, healthy side dish a culinary edge
