Red Quinoa

Red Quinoa

 

Description

A True Food Kitchen restaurant exclusive! Not only is quinoa a nutritional powerhouse, but it has a delightful nutty flavor that is delicious on its own, or with mild seasoning and simple vegetables, such as this recipe. Be sure to wash your quinoa well, as its natural saponin coating is quite bitter, and is not always fully removed during processing.

 

Food as Medicine
Quinoa is high in protein, and the protein it contains is complete, which means it includes all nine essential amino acids.

3 sprigs fresh oregano
