Tree of life organic quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a delicious, healthy, fast-cooking superfood. Its fair to say that quinoa has come a long way in the last few years - from the back shelves of health food stores to national supermarket aisles. Its high protein content, sweet and nutty flavour, and delicate texture have made quinoa a popular substitute for starchier pasta and rice - though once you try it, you're not likely to think of it as a substitute again!
Quinoa is an easy grain to love. Quinoa dates back three to four thousand years ago when the incas first realized that the quinoa seed was fit for human consumption and is often referred to as the gold of the incas because of the increased stamina it provided to their warriors.
