quinoa

This month’s challenge is all about quinoa!

This ancient Peruvian seed has a mild, nutty flavour, and is most commonly used in savoury salads and other grain based dishes. Considered a “superfood” this month’s challenge is to take this humble seed, and turn it into a delicious dessert.

There are over 100 different varieties of quinoa, according to the Whole Grains Council. The most common types are white, red and black quinoa, and can be found as a whole grain, puffed or rolled into flakes.

So what are you waiting for. Get yourself down to the shops, grab a bag of this superfood and start cooking!
