Mount Hope bulk black quinoa has a nuttier texture and stronger flavor than its better known cousin, white quinoa. Like all types of quinoa, black quinoa (pronounced keen-whaa) is a seed, not a grain or cereal. It is high in protein and dietary fiber, making it perfect for vegans, vegetarians and anyone looking to reduce the number of animal products in their diet. Black quinoa is also a good source of vitamins B complex, vitamin E and vitamin C.

Measure 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water (always use a 1:2 ratio). Rinse measured quinoa in a fine sieve to remove excess starch. Place it in a medium saucepan with water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low until all the water is absorbed. Allow the cooked black quinoa to set off heat for at least 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Enjoy!
