Expert Tips

  • COOKING GLUTEN FREE?: Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Did You Know?: Quinoa is a tiny, pearl-shaped, ivory-coloured grain that expands to four times its size when cooked. It's rich in nutrients, and unlike other grains, it's a complete protein.
