Organic quinoa has a delicate, nutty flavour and a texture that combines fluffiness and a gentle crunch. It also contains all nine essential amino acids, so it’s a great protein source if you’re a vegetarian or want a wheat-free alternative to starchy grains.
Give it a quick rinse before cooking to remove its slightly bitter coating. Try simmering it in stock rather than water to enhance its flavour. Its mildness makes it a good base for all kinds of cooking, from stuffed vegetables to light summer salads. You can even use it to replace oats in your morning porridge.
