Quinoa is a dream to cook with because it cooks quickly (15 mins), is highly nutritious and contains all 9 essential amino acids, which is rare in plant-based foods. It provides 5 more grams of fibre and double the protein of rice and is just as versatile. It has a lovely nutty taste, holds spice well and is gluten free. Quinoa flour is a great option for gluten free baking too.
