Let us do the work for you! Now available are not only Simple Truth dry red and white quinoas, but four varieties of pre-cooked frozen quinoa in your favorite brand with the little green circle. Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wa”, has gained momentum in the last couple years as one of our new favorite foods. Quinoa is an ancient “pseudo-cereal”, originating from South America (one of the areas we also source our quinoa) a few thousand years ago.
