Second Spring Organic Sprouted Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, with a fluffy, delicate texture and nutty taste. Quinoa has boomed in popularity recently, but it actually originated in the Andes more than 3,000 years ago. While it’s cooked as a grain, it is actually a seed from a flowering plant that’s related to spinach and beets. It is a good source of protein and fibre, and contains 9 essential vitamins and minerals, making it a complete protein. Of all the quinoa colours, white quinoa has the lightest taste and texture.
Sprouting quinoa aids in digestibility and reduces bitterness (saponin), resulting in a lighter, more subtle flavour. It also reduces its cook time to just 10 minutes, making it the perfect grain for a quick, nutritious and satisfying meal. Cooking sprouted quinoa is very easy, simply boil in water or broth.
It is very versatile and can be a direct replacement for unsprouted quinoa, rice and couscous. Use in hot or cold salads, casseroles, grain bowls, curries, porridge, patties and more. It’s also delicious as a side dish, try adding some toasted nuts and dried cranberries for added texture. For the home miller, sprouted quinoa also makes a wonderful addition to gluten-free baking.
