Quinoa seed is very high in protein, calcium and iron, a good source of vitamin E and many of the B vitamins. It contains an almost perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids! It is exceptionally high in lysine, cystine and methionine-amino acids typically low in other grains.
So go ahead, and add it in to were ever you might put rice or pasta! It works well in almost any recipe!
