Ancient Harvest Quinoa is delicious! The Amazon price is the best I've found. It may seem pricey, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. Quinoa is more of a sprout than a grain and very nutritious (look it up on Wikipedia). Although quinoa is reportedly bitter, Ancient Harvest washes it very well and we did not taste any bitterness at all.

There is a recipe on the back of the box and several more inside. I tried several and they were all delicious. We even like to eat it like oatmeal in the morning. I'm not much into "new wave" food, but this is a winner.

This stuff's great. Comparing calories, it's roughly similar to brown rice. However, the glycemic index is lower, and the amino acid profile is more complete. Plus, there is a lot more protein in quinoa, compared to brown rice! Just check it out on calorie-count.com, nutritiondata.com, whfoods.com, and wikipedia.

Amazon has the BEST deal on quinoa around--12 boxes of this stuff for $25. Sure, it's almost twice as expensive as brown rice, but it's worth it!

Did I mention that quinoa cooks in less than 15 minutes?? Try that with brown rice (and without pressure cooking, cheaters)!

Substitute quinoa for any rice dish. I make spanish rice with quinoa (the 'rice' becomes a misnomer). Same thing for black beans and rice. This stuff's delicious and well textured!

Anyway, spread the word about this thing--it really needs to be a bigger staple in the american diet, along with rice and pasta!!

I love Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa. It is well picked over for twigs, hulls and debris and has been very well rinsed. It is ready to cook right out of the bag as it is so you can toast it in the pan before adding the cooking liquid. That makes quinoa taste so much better.

It is way too over priced though. Even the way over priced Bob's Red Mill brand is quite a bit cheaper. Quinoa of this quality should not cost more than $3.99/lb. If you live near a Trader Joe's or a good bulk food store get your quinoa there. Currently, here on Amazon, Arrowhead Mills comes in at about that price if you sign up for Subscribe & Save but I've heard that it is not as well rinsed which would be a problem quality wise. Eden quinoa costs over $4/lb here but is still cheaper than Bob's Red Mill or Ancient Harvest.

So quality wise I'd give this 5 stars but because of the poor price/value I give it 1 star, hence the 3 star review.

Quinoa is a fast cooking antioxidant rich "whole grain" (actually a grass) that has a fairly complete amino acid profile. Check out the Harvard School of Public Health web site where the eminent nutrition specialist, Walter Willett, puts whole grains on the second level of his evidence based nutrition pyramid along with healthy oils and after exercise.

This is a nutty tasting uniquely colored, delicious, whole food that has a centuries old history.

I started using quinoa as part of healthier eating plan. In calories it is similar to brown rice but with a lower glycemic index. It contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.

I like eating it in different ways:
1) A like quinoa as a side dish. It takes sauces very well.
2) I like it cold to add bulk to the salad. My favorite is to mix it with spinach with tangy dressing.
3) I like as a home-made cereal in the morning. I add frozen fresh berries which I defrost in the microwave just until they are slightly warm.
4) Quinoa has fiber to bulk up stool, and phosphorus to stimulate bowel movement. If you combine it with prunes as your morning cereal you get a real cleansing effect!
Here is my favorite recipe for this treat - tasty and effective.
1 cup of water
1/2 cup quinoa
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 tsp graded ginger
1/3 cup of chopped prunes
1/4 cup rice milk
Bring the water, quinoa, nutmeg and ginger to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 10 minutes. Then stir in the prunes and rice milk. Cover again and cook for 5 more minutes.

Quinoa naturally grows with a bitter layer of saponins, to remove the bitter test Quinoa is pre-washed before packaging to remove the bitter shell. I was pleased with Ancient Harvest quality, I did not detect any bitterness in their quinoa.

Amazon deal on the 12 box of quinoa is very good but you get a lot! If you are thinking of trying it for the first time I recommend trying one box at a more expensive price to see if you like and if you like it go with the 12 box size order. I have bought different versions of Quinoa at a local Trader Joe's and Whole Foods at about $4 a box.

Quinoa (pronounced Keen Wha) is easy to digest, quick to prepare, and boy is it delicious.
For breakfast add fruit and perhaps some honey or Stevia.
For other meals try using a dressing of olive oil, crushed garlic, crushed red pepper flakes. And throw something like goats cheese, or a few shrimp, or some shreds of chicken, or avocado into the mix. Top with chopped spring onion and cilantro. Yum!
Quinoa is a perfectly balanced food that is incredibly good for you.
If you want to lose weight but not be hungry, this stuff is for you.
