Quinoa has been gaining its popularity over the last few decades. These quick-cooking seeds come mainly in three colors: white, red, and black. So as the “Black Quinoa vs White Quinoa or Black Quinoa vs Red Quinoa” questions pop up, it’s important that you know the answers before choosing which to buy. Black Quinoa is coarser and crunchier with the strongest nutty flavor, while red and white varieties are softer in texture and have a milder flavor.

Nutritional Value

Black quinoa is a nutrient-dense product, which carries impressive health benefits. Being low in calories, it also has the highest amount of dietary fiber compared to its counterparts. Fiber helps you feel full longer without gaining extra weight. Black Quinoa Seeds are also rich in Iron, B vitamins, Anthocyanin, Copper, Manganese, and alpha-linolenic acid. Moreover, it is an excellent source of plant protein, thus is highly recommended for vegans.

How to cook Black Quinoa

Black Quinoa cooking time is about 20 minutes on a stovetop (note if using an instant pot, choose high pressure and set the timer for 3 minutes):

       1. Rinse 1 cup of Black Quinoa. Do not skip this step as it allows for removing the grains’ natural bitter coating.
       2. The Black Quinoa & water ratio is 1:2. Place ingredients into a saucepan and add salt.
       3. Bring water to boil on high heat.
       4. Turn to low heat, cover, and simmer until quinoa absorbs all water. Keep in mind, that it will take 5-6 minutes longer than cooking white or red quinoa.
       5. Fluff quinoa with a fork. Serve hot or cold.
       6. Bon Appétit!

How to use Black Quinoa

Enjoy Black Quinoa on its own, or as a delicious side dish to fish, grilled veggies, or meat. Add it to salads, soups, and stews, or eat it instead of morning oatmeal. For a nutrition boost, add cooked and milled quinoa to your smoothies, muffins, and pancakes.

Storage Tips

If you buy Black Quinoa in bulk for long-term storage, make sure to keep it in a cool, dry, and dark place.
