the hunger-taming superfood

Dubbed a 21st century superfood, quinoa (pronounced ‘keen – wa’) is one of our top five healthy foods. Loved for its high nutritional value (protein, fibre and amino acids – mostly all good stuff), quinoa is both gorgeous tasting, easy to prepare, and (surprisingly) filling. Imported from the tropical plains of South America, this crunchy treat is low on calories, and best served hot AND cold! It’s available almost everywhere (most hypermarkets and health stores), and requires little effort, a small pot and a hungry stomach. Delicious recipes below… BONNE APPETITE!
