Eden organic quinoa is very high in protein (12%–18%), making it a healthy choice for vegetarians and vegans. Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source. Cooks in just 12 minutes and packaged in a resealable pouch. Try seasoning it with lemon, pepper, garlic or basil for added flavor.
