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.

First time to use this product from Flourist, and I’m impressed. The Quinoa is super clean, didn’t have to pick any “unsavory particles” from it. Cooks a bit more quickly than the directions suggest, that may be because I’m at a higher altitude. I will order this again.
Very pleased with the quality of your Quinoa. Tasted great too!
Excellent quality and great flavour. Love that it’s grown in Canada!
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.
