Thanks to Lauran and Henriette Damen of Kindred Organics in Tasmania, the farmers responsible for this breakthrough product. We always look out for Australian product. Quinoa is a grain originating from South America that formed a staple food of the Inca civilisation. It contains high levels of protein. Quinoa also provides starch, sugars, oil, fibre and vitamins and many other nutrients such as iron, copper and phosphorus. Cooking with Quinoa. Quinoa in its natural state has a coating that is bitter tasting. Thatês why Quinoa needs to be washed before consumption. Wash and stir 3 or 4 times in water, or wash till water is clear. Never soak Quinoa before washing. The bitterness will be absorbed by the seed and you will never get the bitterness out. The first 2 washes are very important – the first wash will be dark and frothy; the second wash is not as dark as the first. The water will get clearer with every wash. With cooking donêt put too much water on top, the washing makes the product already wet. Not more than 12mm or _ inch of water on top, too much water makes it soggy. Cook for 10-12 min check and let it dry out a bit in its own heat. Don’t cook it for too long or cook on to high or you’ll overcook the Quinoa. Stir a few times when cooking. Quinoa has a light fluffy texture when cooked, and has a mild nutty flavour.
