Premium, 100% traceable, Canadian-grown Golden Quinoa.
Our high protein Golden Quinoa comes from Jamie Draves in Iron Springs Alberta.
Quinoa, like its cousins amaranth and buckwheat, is a tiny seed loaded with protein and high in magnesium, iron and calcium. While most quinoa we find in stores in North America grows in the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru, Canadian prairie farmers have been cultivating the grain for decades.
To cook, combine 1 part Quinoa with 1 1/4 parts water. Cover and bring to a boil and turn the heat to low. Cook, covered, for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the heat off and allow to rest with the lid on for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and fluff with a fork. We recommend rinsing our Golden Quinoa to decrease any bitterness that is naturally present in the grain.

I like it. I learned how to prepare it just perfectly, using a bit more water than recommended. I want to support local farmers and really appreciate your compony.
Plump and even a little sweet. Best quinoa I have ever eaten.
La livraison s'est fait dans un délais d'une semaine. Pour moi, en temps de covid, c'est raisonnable. La qualité est très bonne et en accompagnement ou en dessert c'est excellent. Miam!
Every time I order from flourist it makes my week. Thanks for making/stocking such wonderful products that I feel good giving to my family
The best part was eating it! I’ll need a little practice getting to know this strain of quinoa. I stopped buying quinoa until I learned there is a Canadian product — yours — so it’s been a while since I’ve cooked it. Once I’d given it enough time, and dried it out a bit, I enjoyed the dense, nutty flavour and it’s versatility. Thanks!
