Quinoa – Organic


Quinoa is often used as a grain substitute –  instead of rice or couscous, it is not actually a grain, but a grain-like seed from South America.

Not only does it have a delicious nutty flavor, but it’s healthy, too. 1 cup quinoa contains over 8 grams of protein, as opposed to 5 grams in brown rice.It is also a good source of minerals like manganese, magnesium, and copper.
