White Quinoa is inexpensive and potentially most versatile of all Quinoas, taking on the flavour of whatever it is cooked and served with. Nutritionally similar to Red and Black varieties, it provides equal health benefits with a milder flavour. For a special "nutty" flavour, it can also be pan-baked before cooking - this "toasting" can also eliminate the bitter flavour of the saponins for those who are sensitive to it.
This is "Royal Quinoa" - a classification reserved for Quinoa with a larger grain size.
Quinoa can be used in place of rice and other grains as a side dish or base for other foods, or as the core component of a meal itself. It is a complete protein (contains all 9 essential amino acids), requiring no nuts or legumes to satisfy the protein component of a meal.
It can be made as a side dish, or a base for more flavourful main dishes (eg. meats, sauteed vegetables, stir fry), or even baked right into products like cakes and brownies as a healthy alternative for flour. When used in a recipe, we recommend using cooked quinoa as opposed to uncooked quinoa as the uncooked quinoa will absorb twice it's weight in water and throw off the rest of the recipe.
