Organic Quinoa – Tri-Color Blend
12oz / 1lb
Lundberg Family Farms is proud to present American-grown Tri-Color Blend Quinoa, an incredible grain providing all nine essential amino acids as well as a good source of protein, iron, and dietary fiber. This beautiful variety naturally produces a blend of colored quinoa in the field, including white, brown, red, and black seeds. When cooked, each seed has its own unique texture and savory, nutty flavor that comes together to form a delicious dish. Tri-Color Blend Quinoa makes a great meal on its own, and is great for salads, or as a base for a variety of colorful recipes. Enjoy!
- In a fine mesh sieve, thoroughly rinse and drain 1 cup of quinoa under cold water until the water runs clear.
- Place quinoa in a medium saucepan with 1⅓ cups water or broth and bring to a fast simmer.
- Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer and cook for 17 minutes.
- Remove from heat (keep covered) and steam for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
*If the quinoa is too firm at the end of cooking, it may be necessary to add 1-2 Tbsp. liquid and cook longer.
**Quinoa can be prepared in a rice cooker following the same quinoa to water ratios as above.
