EDEN Organic Red Quinoa is one of a few varieties that can truly be called the 'Mother Grain' of the Americas. It is a rare, ancient pasankalla variety organically grown on small family plots at over 12,000 feet on the Andean Plateau in Bolivia. Traditionally quinoa from this area was highly regarded and the Inca reserved pasankalla this variety for royalty. EDEN Organic Red Quinoa is one of the fastest cooking whole grains, ready in just 12 to 15 minutes. About the size of millet, each round grain is bound with a narrow germ. When cooked the wispy germ separates from the seed and its delicate, almost crunchy curlicue makes a great contrast to the soft grain. Its mild, sweet flavor and delightful fluffy texture make it a versatile and delicious whole grain. It's also very easy to assimilate. EDEN Organic Red Quinoa is Heart Healthy and an excellent source of dietary fiber. It is also rich in magnesium and folate (B9) with 25% DV (daily value). It is a good source of protein, iron, thiamin (B1), and riboflavin (B2), very low sodium, saturated fat free, and cholesterol free. According to the FDA, "Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods, and low in saturated fats and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers." Use EDEN Organic Red Quinoa as you would rice or any grain. It's delicious as an entrée, with beans and vegetables, as hearty cereal, in stuffed vegetables, and in soups, stews, or salads. Quinoa is also great in desserts and puddings. Please try these three favorite Quinoa dishes, Scarlet Quinoa Salad, Minted Quinoa with Crunchy Pine Nuts, and Baked Squash Stuffed with Quinoa and Dried Fruit. They're in the recipe section of this site. You can substitute EDEN Organic Red Quinoa for our white EDEN Organic Quinoa in any recipe. Leftover cooked quinoa is also delicious in pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, and bread. Quinoa can be freshly ground into flour for more versatility. Place 3/4 cup of EDEN Quinoa in a blender and grind 3 to 5 minutes until it becomes fine flour; equals 1 cup flour. Use to make delicious wheat and gluten free desserts, pastries, and baked goods.
