If a whole year is named after you, you know that you are something special! Congratulations to quinoa, because the pseudo-cereal was a recipient of this honour. The former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon declared 2013 the "international year of quinoa", urging people around the world to learn more about the plant's potential. Buy red quinoa now!

Quinoa - what is it?

Like amaranth, this ancient crop belongs to the foxtail family and has been cultivated in the highlands of the Andes for more than 5,000 years, where it is considered a staple food. After their arrival, the Spanish colonialists regarded the so-called South American "Inca wheat" primarily as food for the lower classes, which is why it was virtually unknown in Europe until a few decades ago. Luckily, these times are over, and the hype around quinoa has become enormous, and for a good reason! Quinoa is not only a great energy supplier with a mild-nutty taste. It has many other advantages: quinoa is a pseudo-cereal (quinoa is actually a seed), making it gluten-free. This makes it a great side dish alternative to bulgur or couscous.

Cooking quinoa: preparation and recipes

Have you had enough of rice and potatoes? Quinoa is a great alternative for all types of savoury, but also sweet dishes. You can integrate it into any meal of the day, for example: enjoy some puffed quinoa with fruit, nuts and some agave syrup in your breakfast muesli. At lunch, make a quinoa bowl with smoked tofu from our Food Journal, and in the evening, serve it alongside a burger or fill a roasted pepper with quinoa and vegetables! Quinoa is simply perfect to fill you up and never get fed up with!

Preparing quinoa could not be easier: 

  1. Rinse thoroughly in a colander.
  2. Bring quinoa to a boil with double the amount of water and a pinch of salt, then reduce heat to medium and let cook for about 15 minutes.
  3. Done! When the water has evaporated (the quinoa should have some bite to it), you can serve the pseudo-cereal. Bon appétit!

Questions & answers: Organic red quinoa 2 kg
White quinoa is the most common and is usually cheaper than other varieties. It is rather nutty in taste. Black quinoa tastes very similar, but is a bit more firm to the bite and has a minimally longer cooking time. Red quinoa, similar to the black version, needs to cook a little longer. Because it holds its shape and looks pretty, it works great as a highlight for salads or bowls or as a mildly nutty side dish. Puffed quinoa is also known as the popcorn of the Incas and looks great in your breakfast.
Quinoa is very easy to prepare: Wash the seeds thoroughly in a sieve so that the slightly bitter aftertaste is lost. Then bring to the boil with twice the amount of water and a pinch of salt and then simmer on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Your quinoa is ready!

This quinoa is stunning!

This quinoa is stunning. no matter what color. It has a biting consistency. Yet it is pleasantly intense in flavor and flatters any dish as a side dish. But also excellent as the main ingredient of a meal.
