HEALTH BENEFITS: Packing a nutritional punch!
A complete protein, white quinoa is loaded with all 9 essential amino acids! Quinoa also contains almost twice as much fiber as other grains. It is high in iron, lysine, magnesium, manganese, and riboflavin – all of which help to keep our cells, bones, and muscles healthy.
CULINARY TWIST: Tabbouleh and beyond!
Whether we are adding white quinoa to a salad of greens and veggie’s, or making it the star of a salad with herbs and tomatoes, we love all the ways quinoa can go! Adding a cup-full of cooked white quinoa to a bean salad or a kale salad is an easy way to boost flavor and nutrition. One of our favorite ways to use white quinoa is in a basic tabbouleh salad recipe. The white quinoa bulks up the salad and adds texture! The fluffy and tender seeds soak up the olive oil, lemon juice, and natural juices from the tomatoes, making every bite savory and delectable!
