Alter Eco Organic Royal Red Quinoa -- 1 lb

Organically Grown / Fairly Traded / Hand Cultivated. Nutty Flavorful. Supergrain Of The Andes. Gluten Free. A Good Source of Protein. USDA Organic. Cultivating the world's finest quinoa. 13000 feet up on the arid desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted "quinoa real" or royal quinoa an ancient variety grown only in this very spot. This pearl-shaped nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incas that they called it "chisaya mama" or "mother grain." This Royal Red Quinoa adds a nutty nutritious bright spot to any meal.

"Nutritionally, you can't do better than red quinoa. Use instead of or combine with rice. Rinse well in a fine colander before cooking for the best taste."

Robust Red
 January 12, 2012
"This is really good stuff!..It has a somewhat better taste than the white quinoa. Although, sometimes I like to mix the two together. It's a great gluten-free alternative to couscous and had the ability to be as versatile as rice (eg.,as pilaf style -adding peas, carrots, julliened sundried tomatoes or chiffonade basil;of course you can add whatever you like). The other advantage is the high protein content, making it a well-rounded well-balanced food."
