Black Quinoa


Similar to amaranth, this tiny gluten-free grain is actually a pseudocereal, closely related to chard and tumbleweed. With nine essential amino acids and a high fiber content the Incas considered it the mother grain. Black quinoa is more mineral and sweet than white or red, and preserves its dark color when cooked.
