Organic Black Quinoa by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in Bolivia. Packed in the UK.
Black quinoa, like its red and white cousins, is a gluten-free seed used like a whole grain – like rice or couscous – in cooking. All three varieties are native to South America and were a staple food of the ancient Incas. Quinoa is hugely popular among vegetarians and vegans, but in recent years has burst into the mainstream as a superfood for all.
PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Hatton Hill Organic’s black quinoa is grown and harvested in Bolivia, one of the areas in which it was first cultivated at least 5,000 years ago. Its flavour is somewhat earthy, slightly sweeter than white or red quinoa, and lacking in the slight bitterness characteristic of the red variety.
USES: Hatton Hill Organic’s black quinoa can be used almost any dish in which you can use rice or couscous, and then some. It’s also a particularly pairable ingredient in salads – from green, leafy mixes through coleslaws, and more exotic creations such as various takes on traditional Thai som tham (green papaya salad) – soups, stews, gratins, pilafs, burgers and more, adding depth of flavour, an appealing texture, and a signature dramatic dash of black.
MOTHER GRAIN: Named chisiya mama (mother grain) in the Quechua language of the Andes, quinoa has a rich nutritional profile, providing super-high levels of a protein that includes all nine amino acids, alongside healthy doses of dietary fibre, phosphorous, magnesium iron and omega-3.
