 Product Description

Quinoa & Brussel Sprout Salad
Savory Quinoa Patties

The dark fruitiness and deep burgundy coloring of SHILOH FARMS Red Quinoa will add a distinctly impressive note to any recipe. 

Though widely considered to be a grain, this is technically not true - quinoa is actually a seed. However, it is prepared in much the same way as traditional grains and is frequently used to substitute for them in variety of recipes and applications. Unlike other grains, quinoa has a unique texture all its own. As it cooks, the outer germ around each grain twists outward forming a spiral "tail". While the grain itself becomes soft and delicate, this "tail" remains crunchy, creating an interesting textural combination. Also, quinoa is fairly indestructible, meaning it is not as susceptible to overcooking. 

In addition to its versatility and great taste, quinoa also provides a rich and balanced source of vital nutrients. The highest in protein of all the grains, quinoa is low in sodium, contains 10 essential amino acids, and is an excellent source of calcium, iron, and fiber. 

To Cook: Sort and thoroughly rinse 1 cup quinoa until water runs clear. Add to 2 cups water and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, approximately 15 minutes. As it cooks, quinoa expands almost 5 times its size. 

Keys to Cooking: No matter how you cook quinoa, thorough rinsing is the key to success. Unrinsed quinoa often contains traces of saponin dust, which can result in a bitter, unpleasant flavor. The presence of saponin is obvious by the production of soapy looking "suds" when the grain is swished in water. To clean properly, place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse with water until it runs clear and is no longer sudsy. The amount of rinsing necessary may vary greatly. 

Because it is high in oils, quinoa should be purchased in small amounts and should be stored in a cool dark place (the refrigerator or freezer is ideal.) For best results, use the grains within a year of purchase.

Suggestions
1. Quinoa can be substituted for rice, wheat, corn, or barley in recipes. 
2. Cooked quinoa is excellent in hot casseroles, soups, stews, and stir-fries; uncooked seeds may be added to soups and stews.
3. To give quinoa a pleasant, toasted flavor, try dry roasting it in a pan or the oven before cooking.
4. Add sweetness by cooking quinoa in fruit juice; eat as a breakfast cereal or use in desserts.
5. Create a quick salad by combining quinoa with chopped vegetables and beans for an easy and nutritious dish.
6. "Pop" quinoa seeds in a dry skillet and eat them as a cereal or snack.
7. Sprout quinoa seeds and add to salads or sandwiches.

  1. Best Quinoa on the Marketplace VERY experienced Quinoa cook

    Posted by Darla Desautel on 28th Feb 2013

    I've been making quinoa salads for many many years and even have one of my recipes featured at one of the area health food stores; it's a top seller. I've tried dozens of quinoas and will always try to only use Shiloh Farms brand in the red quinoa. They used to sell black, which I liked a lot, but they no longer sell it. It's challenging to find packaged organic red quinoa from a source you can truly trust. I've seen a few stores with bulk quinoa claiming to be organic, but I don't trust it completely. Quinoa is grown mostly outside of the United States and there are no solid rules for labeling. Don't even bother using the white quinoa; it has very little taste. The difference with this red quinoa is amazing; this is the top of the line product. Buy it with confidence. It's worth every penny plus the shipping; your recipes will be delicious AND healthy. I use other Shiloh Farms products and have never found better quality; try their sprouted wheat flour for your homemade pizzas, for example. Happy cooking!
