Organic Canihua (baby quinoa) - 450g

Canihua (pronounced ka-ni-wah) is the ‘new’ super grain from the Andes. Referred to as ‘baby quinoa’, canihua has an equally impressive nutrition profile, with the added benefit of having no saponin (the soapy coating found in many plants which has a slightly bitter flavour, if not rinsed properly). This wheat-free, naturally gluten-free grain is easy to digest and is among the least allergenic foods available. 

Canihua can be used in just about any recipe calling for quinoa. Try it in salads, soups, or pilafs. Add a handful to a burrito, enchilada, chili or stew. 

 


Ingredients: Organic Canihua

Origin: Peru

Certification: BioGro Organic

Enjoy Me...

  • To cook, put in a cup of canihua with two cups of water or stock (for added flavour), cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes.
  • In my experience, canihua doesn't "fluff up" the same way quinoa does, but it doesn't congeal like millet or teff will. If you want a more porridge-like breakfast kaniwa, cook the grains in milk or soy milk for 25 minutes and add a little sugar or sweetener along with fresh fruits or nuts and raisins.
  • You can enjoy Canihua, just as you would any other whole grain: Add a handful to a simmering soup, keep some on hand to add protein and fiber to a green salad, add veggies and dressing to make a healthy kaniwa pilaf, or top it off with your favorite vegetable curry or saucy stir-fry, that is, just like you would do with steamed white rice.
