About Organic Red Quinoa

Quinoa (keen-wah) has been cultivated for over 5,000 years and came from South America. Although classified as a grain it is actually the fruit of the Goosefoot plant. It is a small, round grain and is used in everything from breakfast cereal, soups, stews, salads and breads.

Quinoa seed is high in protein, calcium and iron, a relatively good source of vitamins E, C and several of the B group. Also contains fibre. It has an almost perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids needed for tissue growth. Quinoa is a balanced amino acid source of high quality, complete protein with a low glycaemic index. Quinoa also contains albumin and has no gluten containing ingredients.

Quinoa is a great food to eat as a side dish instead of rice or pasta, as it is low in carbohydrates. It is actually high in protein, making it a very healthy food. By choosing red quinoa, I get the extra phytonutrients in the red pigments.

Vegetarian Protein Rich Quinoa, Avocado and Peas Super Salad Recipe

Summary: This salad is really super quick and easy to make, and yet very sustaining. Quinoa and Avocados are traditional foods in Peru ; they go really well together and are both highly nutritious. Quinoa is high in fibre and in excellent quality protein. Avocados are amongst the best foods on the planet, thanks to their high content in healthy fats, fats that heal. Spinach is really high in good quality protein too and because it has a balanced amino-acid profile, it improves the protein profile of any meal. This really is a super salad ! Please feel free to add other Spring favourites like blanched broad beans or sliced raw radishes, or substitute lamb's lettuce for the baby spinach. It takes only 5 extra minutes to make the quinoa crunchies, and they are well worth it. Make them right before serving the salad for a lovely temperature and texture contrast. Serves 1 hungry person as a main, or 2 normal people as a starter.
