A blend of three different types of quinoa seeds: white, red, and black. Has a slightly nutty flavor and fluffy texture, and is a popular ingredient in many dishes, particularly in vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Quinoa is a grain-like seed that has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its nutritional content. It is a good source of protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals, making it a healthy addition to any diet. Tricolor quinoa is no exception, and can be used in a wide variety of dishes, such as salads, soups, stews, and even as a substitute for rice or pasta.
To prepare tricolor quinoa, rinse it thoroughly in cold water to remove any bitterness, then combine it with water or broth in a pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff the quinoa with a fork before serving.
