...the staple diet of the Andes
Quinoa comes from South America and is mostly cultivated in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. This plant has been an essential staple for the people of the Andes for 6,000 years. Quinoa isnâ€™t a grain, so isnâ€™t a grass like wheat, oat or rye. This little Incan seed is a goosefoot and is part of the same family as beetroot and spinach.
Quinoa grows up to two meters high and is very robust. Extreme weather conditions and bad weather are no problem.
Wash the quinoa with hot water to remove the bitter substances from the outer layers. Add the quinoa to water (1 part quinoa to 2.5 parts water), simmer for approx. 20 minutes and leave it to soak for around 5 minutes.
