Kañiwa is a relative of quinoa, and like quinoa grows in Peru and Bolivia. It is an excellent source of protein and amino acids, is exceptionally high in iron, and is gluten-free. Dark reddish-brown in color and about half the size of a tiny quinoa seed, Kañiwa cooks up quickly to resemble a smaller version of red quinoa. One major difference to quinoa is that Kañiwa doesn’t have saponins, the coating that gives quinoa a soapy, slightly bitter flavor if not rinsed properly.

Like many a nutritious grain, Kañiwa works well in warm pilafs and room-temperature salads, and is easy-to-digest and naturally contains no gluten.
