  1. I got some great recipes off the web. I just discovered this stuff and cant wait to buy some and make my own dishes.

    Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a high-protein, gluten-free ancient grain that cooks much like rice and has a texture similar to couscous. Combined with lemon, onion, wine, cashews and sun-dried tomato, you’ll enjoy a carnival of flavors and textures. For a delicious vegan entrée, add some baked tofu chunks.

    TRY THIS! I got this premade at a local store.. YUMMY!
    Serves 4
    •1 TB extra virgin olive oil
    •2 cloves garlic, minced
    •1/2 medium red onion, finely diced
    •1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, julienned or chopped
    •1/2 cup vegetable broth
    •1/2 cup dry white wine
    •2 TB lemon juice
    •1/2 cup quinoa
    •1/2 tsp sea salt, or to taste
    •1 cup broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces Fresh ground black pepper to taste
    •1/2 cup roasted cashew pieces
    •2 scallions, thinly sliced
    Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, vegetable stock, wine and lemon juice and bring to a boil.
    Stir in the quinoa and salt. Reduce heat, and simmer covered about 20 minutes. Add the broccoli on top and simmer an additional 5 to 6 minutes.
    Remove from heat, toss gently until combined. Add ground pepper and additional salt, if desired, to taste.
    Garnish with cashews and scallions before serving.

  3. Nutritionary Benefits

    They are great sources of supplement C, B6, potassium,
    folate, flavonoids along with the excellent phytochemical, limonene.
