Alter Eco Quinoa

|

Lighter in taste and texture than most whole grains, quinoa is easy to digest and notably high in protein.

Use it in place of rice or pasta, or mix it with parsley, lemon, tomatoes and olive oil for a Mediterranean-style summer salad. Alter Eco purchases its quinoa as part of a fair-trade deal with sustainable farms in the Bolivian Andes. About $8 for a 1-pound bag at your local natural grocery, or order direct (and learn more about the company’s good works) at www.altereco-usa.com.
