Have you heard of or tried quinoa (keen-wa)? This delicious superfood is gluten-free and packed with protein and iron. Although quinoa is actually a seed, it cooks like a whole grain making it incredibly versatile within recipes from breakfast to dinner! Bob’s Red Mill offers USDA organic quinoa in three varieties: Original, Red, and Tricolor. I was able to try each of the three and found them all to be super tasty! See below to learn more about each quinoa product.
Organic Quinoa Grain
This original organic quinoa can be used in all sorts of recipes like soups, salads, and even desserts (like cookies!). It has a simple earthy flavor and smooth texture. Unlike other quinoa’s, all of Bob’s Red Mill quinoa’s have been thoroughly rinsed and air-dried to remove the naturally occurring bitter saponins. This is a huge plus as rinsing quinoa can be a hassle if your in a hurry to get your meal cooking.
Organic Red Quinoa Grain
Organic Red Quinoa is much like the original quinoa only it has a slightly firmer texture. This unique red quinoa is vibrant and bright making it the perfect colorful addition to dishes.
Organic Tricolor Quinoa Grain
Tricolor quinoa grain is another unique variety that consists of red, black, and white grains. It has a slightly firmer and crunchier texture than original quinoa and it’s earthy flavor is delicious! With 6 grams of protein and 10% iron in each serving, this is an excellent part of any meal!
I enjoyed using the Tricolor Quinoa in a dinner I created for my family. This flavorful dish is nutritious and very easy to make. Enjoy!
