If you’re health-conscious, you would probably know of the multiple benefits of quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”) and already swopped out your white rice meals for this super-grain.
It’s full of protein and is gluten-free, low in calories and fat, prevents diabetes and hypertension, and can slow down the ageing process.
It is also high in fibre, magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium and vitamins B and E.
