11 Ways To Use Quinoa

Quinoa is fast becoming one of the most talked about 'super-foods' and it's no surprise why! These tiny grains are a great gluten-free alternative to starchy grains and can be enjoyed in both sweet and savoury dishes.

Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa contains all eight of the essential amino acids meaning it is a complete protein. It is low in fat and packed with important dietary fibre! It is a great alternative for those on a gluten-free diet and it is easy to digest! Seriously - it really is a super food! We stock a variety of quinoa products including grain, flour, puffs and flakes!

There are so many great quinoa recipes out there that it was hard to choose only ten for this list! Here are just a few of our favourites!
