About Organic Black Quinoa

Quinoa has been cultivated for around 6000 years, and is an excellent naturally Gluten-Free alternative to other grains. With the highest iron content of any grain, it is also rich in essential amino acids and vitamins A, B2 and E.

Black quinoa is slightly more fibrous in texture than white quinoa, and is crunchier when cooked. To prepare, rinse thoroughly under running water before cooking. Then, add 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water or stock, bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Independent reviewer Mo of the Veggie Blackboard recommends making energy bars from them, simply cook half a cup of black quinoa (15 minutes) and let it cool. Blend together 2 tbsp of chia seeds, 1 small cup of frozen berries, 15 dates and 1/3 of a cup of dried cranberries. Leave out a few of the dried cranberries to decorate them with. Bake at 190 C/fan 170C/gas 5 for thirty minutes (depending on the thickness of the bar). Then melt 2 bits of dark chocolate and cover each bar, sprinkling on the remaining dried cranberries. Voila, a delicious power bar!

I like to eat this black quinoa instead of rice because it is high in protein and because of its vibrant colour.
