Roland Red Quinoa, Pre-Washed 12 oz

Est. 1934. Ancient superfood of the Incas. Quinoa was a principal component in the diet of the ancient Incas over 5,000 years ago and has since become a staple in modern kitchens around the world. There are numerous benefits to quinoa; it is not a true grain, it is actually a plant see, thus making it a gluten-free alternative to traditional grains. Roland Red Quinoa has a pronounced nutty flavor, a rich terracotta color, and a hearty texture that is adaptable for every cuisine and has limitless potential for culinary applications. Our Quinoa comes pre-washed in order to remove the naturally occurring coating known as saponin in order to improve the nutty taste and still maintain the quinoa’s unique texture. Try quinoa toasted, popped, boiled in broth for added flavor, and in both sweet and savory dishes.
