Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is often referred to as a supergrain, due to it’s high fiber content and high-quality protein.

In fact, it contains more protein than any other grain, while also packing in iron and potassium. This superfood is classified as a whole grain and is naturally gluten-free. It cooks up like rice and has a mild, nutty flavor and a light, texture similar to rice or couscous. You can find it next to other grains in health-food stores and many supermarkets.
