Quinoa is the gluten-free “grain” that once fueled the Inca empire. The Incas recognized that Quinoa improved their health and stamina and regarded it as a sacred food. Today, nutritionists consider it one of the best “superfood” in the world.
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is generally referred to as a grain, but is, in fact, the seed of a plant that is a relative of leafy green vegetables such as beets, chard, and spinach. Like its relatives, quinoa is a good source of dietary fiber. It is rich in essential nutrients, such as magnesium, manganese, iron, tryptophan, copper, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and phosphorous. Quinoa is considered a complete-protein food because it contains all nine essential amino acids. Quinoa is also gluten-free.
Quinoa is not only nutritious, it is delicious. Cooked quinoa is mild and buttery, and slightly crunchy. The most common quinoa seed is golden in color, but there are other varieties in colors such as red, black, pink, orange, and purple. The darker-colored seeds have a more crunchy and earthy texture when cooked, as well as more fiber.
