Product Description

Organic Quinoa is an incredibly nutritious grain-like seed. This plant has its origin in South America, where ancient Incans called it “mother grain”, as they believed it could secure long, healthy life.

Their beliefs, as it turns out, did have a certain foundation: quinoa seeds are an excellent source of protein and essential minerals and vitamins. The distinguishing feature of these seeds is that they contain all the main amino acids.

Health Benefits

The main quality of organic quinoa—as a powerful source of protein and minerals—determines the ways they benefit a human’s body. These are numerous and significant:

  • Render help with bone and tissue building.
    Quinoa seeds have a protein balance similar to that of meat, fish, and milk, so they are an invaluable food for those who are on a vegetarian diet. Besides, they are a rich source of calcium, the mineral that is responsible for bones’ strength, and zinc, which is a co-factor of many enzymes that regulate the processes of growth and development, sperm generation, and nucleic acid synthesis. Consumption of quinoa guarantees a beautiful appearance for your skin, hair, and nails.
  • Help cope with severe headache.
    Due to the high content of riboflavin and magnesium, you can eat organic quinoa to get rid of migraine headaches. Riboflavin improves transportation of oxygen to the brain cells and magnesium provides relaxation of the blood vessels that lead to the brain.
  • Provide some protection against cancer.
    Quinoa seeds contain several substances—many with antioxidant qualities—that are reported to be helpful in providing protection from this disease. Manganese prevents cells’ mitochondria from being damaged during energy production. It, together with vitamins A, B1, B2, E, and the mineral selenium, remove free radicals from the body, thus protecting it against cancer.
  • Regulate the work of the digestive system.
    The great amount of insoluble fiber in quinoa helps lower the occurrence of gall stones and improves functioning of bile. The fiber is an irreplaceable method for preventing constipation, and its ability to bind toxins lowers the risk of colon cancer.
  • Help reduce appetite.
    Due to the high content of protein and fiber, quinoa seeds help you eat less. Meals with the seeds ensure the feeling of satiety, thus causing a reduction in daily calorie intake. Therefore, quinoa seeds help you stick to a low-calorie diet and manage your weight.

Gluten Free Quinoa + Chia Bread

Gluten Free Quinoa + Chia Bread

Ingredients for 1 loaf:

  • 300 g (10 1/2 oz / 1 3/4 cups) whole uncooked quinoa seed – http://bit.ly/1P3f4nj
  • 60 g (2 fl oz / 1/4 cup) whole chia seed – http://bit.ly/1RUj2zW
  • 250 ml / 1 cup water (use half to soak chia seeds and the other half to combine in the food processor)
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz / ¼ cup) olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice from ½ lemon


Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 160 C / 320 F. fan forced oven.
  • Soak quinoa in plenty of cold water overnight in the fridge.
  • Soak chia seed in 1/2 cup water until gel like – this can be done overnight as well, but just give it a few stirs at the beginning.
  • Drain the quinoa and rinse really well through a sieve. Make sure the water is fully drained from your sieve.
  • Place the quinoa into a food processor.
  • Add chia gel, 1/2 cup of water, olive oil, bicarb soda, sea salt and lemon juice.
  • Mix in a food processor for 3 minutes. The bread mix should resemble a batter consistency with some whole quinoa still left in the mix.
  • Spoon into a loaf tin lined with baking paper on all sides and the base.
  • Bake for 1 ½ hours until firm to touch and bounces back when pressed with your fingers. Mine took 1 1/2 hours – oven temps can vary slightly – but the bread needs the time to cook and for the quinoa to become tender.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes in the tin…then remove from the tin and cool completely on a rack or board. The bread should be slightly moist in the middle and crisp on the outside. Cool completely before eating.
  • Serve delicate slices only when cold with a serrated knife.
  • Store wrapped in the fridge for up to 1 week.(yes this can be frozen for up to 3 months)
  • Delicious lightly toasted on a pan.
  • Serves 12 – and best served lightly toasted in a pan until golden on both sides.


Quick tip:
Serve topped with macadamia nut butter.

Enjoy it!

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa – http://bit.ly/1P3f4nj
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed & ½ cup water (3 flax eggs) – http://bit.ly/1N9uZmg
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy/almond milk
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots – http://bit.ly/20WjbtU


Instructions

  1. If you don’t have some cooked quinoa laying around, cook up a batch (a little under a cup of dry quinoa) and let it cool in the fridge.
  2. Make 3 flax eggs by combining the ground flaxseed with water and letting it sit for 15 minutes until you get an eggy consistency.
  3. Chop up your favorite dried fruit (I was craving apricots), and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large bowl, combine everything except for a small handful of the dried fruit. Give everything a big mix, especially if your almond butter isn’t spreadable (trick: heat it up in the microwave first!).
  5. Grease your baking pan with olive oil and dump the contents of the bowl into the pan. Top with your reserved dried fruit. I used a loaf pan (filled halfway) so that I would get plenty of crusty sides and a deeper volume for the oatmeal bake.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, checking starting around 20 minutes to ensure the middle is no longer ‘jiggly’ and that a crust has formed on top.

If you are using a shallower pan, reduce the baking time slightly and anticipate a thinner baked oatmeal. You could also easily double this recipe for a 9×9 or 8×8 pan, increasing the baking time. After letting the oatmeal sit and cool for a few minutes, slice into it and top with maple syrup, extra cinnamon, or yogurt.

Enjoy it!
