Yes it does and red quinoa has just as much wonderful healthy goodness as regular white quinoa. It's a complete protein like its pale sister, offering you all the essential amino acids that you need to build strong bones, muscles, skin, and blood.
You can substitute rice in any dish with quinoa, which is great since it has more than twice the amount of protein than rice. Plus it's easy to digest and doesn't have a very strong flavour. All of these reasons combine to make it a very tasty grain.
Compared with white quinoa, the red variety has a slightly earthier flavor. Once cooked, it has a light brownish color. Try both varieties to see which one you prefer.
What's more, quinoa is easy to cook. Here easy steps:
Boil 2 cups of water.
Add 1 cup of quinoa, cover, and turn down the heat to low.
After about 15 minutes, lift up the cover and stir.
You'll know it's done when the grain turns slightly transparent, and the curly string-like germ has separated from the circular part.
Quinoa is great on its own when eaten with a stir-fry, but you can also make it its own dish, similar to a rice pilaf. Simply sauté your favorite veggies and add them to the cooked quinoa. For even more flavor, cook quinoa in veggie broth instead of water.
