If a whole year is named after you, you know that you are something special! Congratulations to quinoa, because the pseudo-cereal was a recipient of this honour. The former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon declared 2013 the "international year of quinoa", urging people around the world to learn more about the plant's potential. Buy red quinoa now!

Quinoa - what is it?

Like amaranth, this ancient crop belongs to the foxtail family and has been cultivated in the highlands of the Andes for more than 5,000 years, where it is considered a staple food. After their arrival, the Spanish colonialists regarded the so-called South American "Inca wheat" primarily as food for the lower classes, which is why it was virtually unknown in Europe until a few decades ago. Luckily, these times are over, and the hype around quinoa has become enormous, and for a good reason! Quinoa is not only a great energy supplier with a mild-nutty taste. It has many other advantages: quinoa is a pseudo-cereal (quinoa is actually a seed), making it gluten-free. This makes it a great side dish alternative to bulgur or couscous.

Cooking quinoa: preparation and recipes

Have you had enough of rice and potatoes? Quinoa is a great alternative for all types of savoury, but also sweet dishes. You can integrate it into any meal of the day, for example: enjoy some puffed quinoa with fruit, nuts and some agave syrup in your breakfast muesli. At lunch, make a quinoa bowl with smoked tofu from our Food Journal, and in the evening, serve it alongside a burger or fill a roasted pepper with quinoa and vegetables! Quinoa is simply perfect to fill you up and never get fed up with!

Preparing quinoa could not be easier: 

  1. Rinse thoroughly in a colander.
  2. Bring quinoa to a boil with double the amount of water and a pinch of salt, then reduce heat to medium and let cook for about 15 minutes.
  3. Done! When the water has evaporated (the quinoa should have some bite to it), you can serve the pseudo-cereal. Bon appétit!

Gesund ist vor allem eine ausgewogene und abwechslungsreiche Ernährung. Unsere rote Quinoa lässt sich in eine vollwertige Ernährungsweise integrieren und erweist sich als ideale Protein- (14 g/100 g) und Ballaststoffquelle (11 g/100 g).

Quinoa ist ein wahrer Allrounder und schmeckt zum Beispiel als Beilage zu gebratenem Gemüse, gegrilltem Tofu oder mariniertem Fleisch. Durch den nussigen Geschmack eignet sich rote Quinoa auch als Zutat für Salate, Bowls und Suppen. In Kombination mit schwarzen Bohnen und Haferflocken kannst Du damit auch eigene Burger-Patties oder Bratlinge zubereiten.

White quinoa is the most common and is usually cheaper than other varieties. It is rather nutty in taste. Black quinoa tastes very similar, but is a bit more firm to the bite and has a minimally longer cooking time. Red quinoa, similar to the black version, needs to cook a little longer. Because it holds its shape and looks pretty, it works great as a highlight for salads or bowls or as a mildly nutty side dish. Puffed quinoa is also known as the popcorn of the Incas and looks great in your breakfast.
Quinoa is very easy to prepare: Wash the seeds thoroughly in a sieve so that the slightly bitter aftertaste is lost. Then bring to the boil with twice the amount of water and a pinch of salt and then simmer on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Your quinoa is ready! When the water has boiled away (the quinoa should be minimally firm to the bite), you can serve the pseudo-cereal. Enjoy your meal!
Quinoa is a source of protein with 14 g of protein per 100 g. In addition, it has a high fiber content. The exact nutritional values can be found in the table next to or below the product description.
Unlike couscous and bulgur, quinoa is not a wheat product. Quinoa is, strictly speaking, a seed! In addition, the pseudo cereal is perfect if you have eaten your fill of rice and Co. but do not want to give up your side dish!
Die Frage ist wohl eher, welches Rezept Du NICHT mit Quinoa zaubern kannst?! Egal, ob zum Frühstück im Müsli, mittags im Superfood-Salat oder Deiner Bowl oder abends in Deiner Gemüsepfanne – Quinoa eignet sich hervorragend für süße und herzhafte Gerichte. Die volle Ladung an Rezepten kannst Du Dir gerne auf unserem Food-Journal geben.
Yes, our quinoa comes from organic farming.
Quinoa has a nutty, mild flavor that is particularly versatile in dishes.
Quinoa is a pseudocereal. This means that it is often classified as a cereal, but strictly speaking it belongs to the seeds. Quinoa belongs to the foxtail family and is native to South America, where the plant is grown along the Andes. The Inca wheat is a great alternative to conventional grains and extremely tasty prepared both savory and sweet.
Quinoa belongs to the group of so-called "pseudocereals" and is therefore naturally gluten-free. However, since quinoa comes into contact with machines that also process other gluten-containing foods, traces of gluten may be present.
