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.
Golden Quinoa is perfect for salads and grain bowls. Browse our favourite Golden Quinoa recipes here.

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!
This is the best flavored quinoa I’ve ever tasted. It tastes like great farming! Awesome find!
On the 500 g package, that I bought first to try, the English instructions said to use 1 part rinsed quinoa to 1 & 1/4 parts water, and the bottom of the quinoa burnt. The second time I increased the water to 1 & 1/2 cups and it cooked perfectly. It is the best quinoa that I have ever tasted and I love the darker golden colour. I have since bought the 2 kg bags and now I won't buy anything else. I especially like supporting Canadian farmers.
I like ordering from you guys, but when will you start selling chickpea flour again?
