Although classed as a grain, quinoa (keen-wah) is technically an herb, originating with the Incas, in Peru.
Quinoa is perishable because of its oil content, and should be stored in the fridge up to a month, or in the freezer for 2 months.
Quinoa is light, delicious, high in protein, and easy to cook. It can be used in place of rice, bulgar, or couscous, and can also be cooked in a rice cooker.More quinoa info and tips
