We're big quinoa fans, so I decided to give Kaniwa a try. It's very similar, but a much smaller grain. We cooked it basically the same way. The appearance on the plate was very pretty - reminded me of caviar. I really enjoyed the lightly nutty flavor. The texture, because of the small grains, is a bit grainy or sandy. I didn't mind it, but some people don't like unusually-textured foods. It's possible that the texture would be less distinct, had we cooked it longer - quinoa, I know, has a very different texture if you cook it al dente or let it go till the grains puff out. Worth a try if you're a quinoa lover!

I never heard about this grain before. I watched a Dr. Oz program and he said it was a good source of protein.
A little goes a long way. I ate it alone, put it in smoothies, added it to my oatmeal. Very good . The taste was not what I expected.
It has no sugar so it is grainy. But you can use it in soup, rice, or a salad and it doesn't change the taste of what it is added to.

Kaniwa is better than quinoa, especially if toasted first (similar to couscous). It holds together well (doesn't become soggy), has a good flavor, and works well in anything you would use quinoa in. People who don't like quinoa come back for second helpings of salads with Kaniwa. It is one of my "go-to" grains now!

The nutritional value is high, but the texture leaves a lot to be desired as it is very small even after it's cooked, so very "grainy". The taste is good, so I'm going to have to see if I can get used to the texture.

I am totally dissatisfied with this product. It says to toast the grains first, then add 2 cups of water and cook for 15". Well it cooked for over a half hour and it still looks the same. Nothing popped and I am quite disappointed. The smell is awful.
