Whatever takes your fancy.Quinoa is closely related to species such as beetroots and spinach and was first domesticated by the Andean peoples around 3,000 years ago and has been an important staple in the Andean cultures where the plant is indigenous, although relatively obscure in the rest of the world. ¬†The Incas held the crop to be sacred, and referred to it as chisaya mama or "mother of all grains", and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using "golden implements". ¬†During the Spanish conquest of South America, colonists scorned quinoa as "food for Indians", and even actively suppressed its cultivation due to its status within indigenous religious ceremonies. ¬†In fact, the conquistadores forbade quinoa cultivation for a time and the Incas were forced to grow wheat instead.Quinola Mothergrain Express Quinoa Spicy Mexican is a perfectly cooked ready to eat supergrain with added tomatoes and various vegetables that is a perfect accompaniment to any meal or is great on its own as a delicious and nutritious filler.
