Quinoa is largely considered a “super-grain” because of its high nutritional value, although it is technically an herb, rather than a true grain.
It provides all of the essential amino acids (making it a complete source of protein) and compared to other grains, it is higher in protein, iron, vitamin B3, B6, and phosphorus.
Other key nutrients include: fibre, vitamin B1, B2, B6, copper, folate, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and zinc, as well as phytochemicals.
People who are allergic to various cereal grains can usually tolerate quinoa because it is gluten free. It is quick and easy to prepare into a side dish or hot cereal, and can be used in pilafs, soups, salads, stews, and chilli.
I like to add 1 or 2 teaspoons of organic bone broth to the water while cooking quinoa for additional flavour, as well as the amazing joint, intestinal, and immune health benefits.
