Quinoa, actually a seed rather than a grain, was originally grown in the Andes up to 4000 years ago. These tiny red bead-shaped grains can be cooked just like rice and hold their shape, making them ideal for salads and recipes where a distinct grain is required. The organic long grain brown rice adds bulk, wholegrains and flavour to this popular combination.
Ingredients: Long grain brown rice*(80%), red quinoa*(20%).
