|the cooked quinoa|
Quinoa is a little plant seed that has properties and uses similar to larger cereal crops. This packet contains three types of quinoa: red, white and black. There are no colourings or additives in this product, just 100% quinoa grain.Quinoa is naturally gluten free and a good source of protein. It can be used to bulk out soups and stews as well as being used instead of rice and cous cous.
A good source of Iron, Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus.
So expanding on Claire's idea I decided to make;
Tricolore Quinoa and haggis burgers.
1/2 cup tricolore quinoa
1 small onion
1 egg whisked
2. finely chop an onion
3. mix the quinoa and chopped onion through the haggis, add the egg.
4) shape into burgers and cook for 10-12 mins at 180 oC
|served with mash and turnip|
We served this with a potato and sweet potato mash with mashed turnip.
