Red Quinoa

Red quinoa (keen-wah) has been an important ingredient of South American and Andes diets for thousands of years. The Incas referred to quinoa as the mother of all grains. It is actually a seed from the goosefoot plant. Today, red (as well as white and black) quinoa is still considered a super food making a beautiful, nutritious base for many recipes and dishes.

Quinoa is a small grain that has a light, fluffy, somewhat chewy texture when cooked. Its mild, slightly nutty flavor makes it an alternative to rice or other grain. It is one of the few grains that is a complete protein, as well as a good source of essential amino acids, fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, iron and B complex. Quinoa is gluten free, cholesterol free, easy to digest, high in iron and is also a good source of calcium, and vitamin E. Red quinoa’s extremely high protein content, makes it the perfect food for vegetarians and vegans and those with special dietary needs.

Red quinoa’s rich color adds dimension to any dish. Quinoa is not only nutritional and delicious, it only takes between 10 and 15 minutes to cook. It complements most meats, salads, mixed vegetables, stir-fry, breakfast foods, casseroles, couscous, pilafs, soups and side dishes. Cook with chicken, beef, or vegetable broth instead of water for a deeper, nuttier flavor. Red quinoa is delicious served alone, simply drizzled with sea salt, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and salt and pepper for a satisfying meal.

Mount Hope Wholesale offers this popular grain in two and five pound bags, as well as 25 and 55 pound sacks for those kitchens that base multiple dishes on red quinoa.
