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. 

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!

Questions & answers: Organic white quinoa 2 kg
Quinoa belongs to the group of so-called "pseudocereals" and is therefore naturally gluten-free. However, since quinoa comes into contact in the processing process with machines that also process other gluten-containing foods, traces of gluten may be present. People with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance must therefore unfortunately keep their hands off our organic quinoa.
White quinoa is the most common and is usually cheaper than other varieties. It is rather nutty in taste. Black quinoa tastes quite similar, but is a bit more al dente and has a minimally longer cooking time. Red quinoa, much like the black version, takes a little longer to cook. Because it holds its shape and looks pretty, you're best off using it as a highlight for salads. Puffed quinoa is also known as the popcorn of the Incas and looks great in your breakfast.
Quinoa has a nutty, mild flavor that is more than welcome in a variety of dishes.
Yes, our quinoa comes from organic farming.
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 comes from South America, where the plant is grown along the Andes. Inca wheat is a great alternative to most other grains and is extremely delicious prepared both savory and sweet.
Quinoa is a source of protein with 13 g 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.
To prepare quinoa is very simple: wash the seeds in a sieve with hot water to lose the slightly bitter aftertaste. Then boil briefly with twice the amount of water and a pinch of salt, and then simmer on medium heat for about 20-25 minutes. Chef's kiss, you're done! Once the water has boiled away (your quinoa should be minimally al dente), you're ready to serve the pseudo-grain. Enjoy your meal!
Unlike couscous and bulgur, quinoa is not a wheat product. Quinoa is actually 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 carbs! <3
The question is rather, which recipe you can NOT prepare with quinoa? Whether for breakfast as porridge, at lunch in a superfood salad or your tofu bowl or in the evening as a side dish for your curry - quinoa is perfect for sweet and savory dishes. You can find the full load of recipes in our Food Journal.

Quinoa something different

I have been ordering my quinoa from KoRo for a long time and very gladly. The price / performance ratio is really good. However, the quinoa of the last order is a little different than before: the grains are smaller, darker and remind after cooking the color of whole grain rice. It also needs to be rinsed more thoroughly, otherwise there are small grains of sand.
