Enjoy this delicious recipe and discover some of the healthful benefits of this amazing superfood!
Quinoa is an amazing food. Eaten for over 5,000 years this powerhouse of nutrition is becoming ever more popular here in America.
It is consumed much like other grains (wheat, barley, oats and rye) yet it is not a grain (cereal grass) but rather a family member with spinach, Swiss chard and beets.
Health Benefits of Quinoa
Unlike other grains, quinoa is a complete protein. Great for vegans.
Good Source of Fiber
Quality intake of protein and fiber are two dietary essentials for regulation of blood sugar
Anti-inflammatory/Reduced Risk of Cancer
Phytonutrients in some cases are higher than blueberries and cranberries.
Gluten-Free/Low Allergy Potential and High Digestibility
These qualities make it suitable for young children and those with digestive sensitivity
1 ¼ c. quinoa, rinsed + 1/3 c. quinoa flour
2 ¼ c. vegetable stock, organic
I keep bulk powdered organic vegetable broth on hand to use when I’m short on time. Choose a quality product preferably organic. Cheap packaged mixes are laden with toxic chemicals. And NOT inexpensive when you calculate their price by the pound. Not to mention the cost to your health!
