Delicate quinoa is tasty, nutritious, versatile and easy to cook.
Rinse, cover with 1½ to two parts water or stock for each 1 part quinoa, bring to the boil and then simmer on a very low heat for 15 minutes. The grains will absorb the water and swell to 2 to 3 times their original size. Fluff the grains apart with a fork.

Or try our new Fava Bean Chips - they're cheaper than Split Fava Beans and cook just the same only a little faster.View full product details
Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
