Quinoa is an amazing, tasty, versatile grain and a good source of protein and iron. Living Now® Organic Black Quinoa has an earthy, robust flavor. Slightly firmer in texture than both Red and White Quinoa, Black Quinoa pairs well with bolder-flavored foods and is an excellent complement to other grains.
