    • Heather could probably describe this better, but it’s like a hearty, richly-textured rice that picks up much of the flavor it’s cooked in. I hope that helps! -MKB

    • Hmm.. well its kind of hard to explain. Kind of like rice, but moister (is that even a word?) I don’t know if that even makes sense. Make sure to wash the quinoa before you cook it or it will have a slightly bitter taste. It really doesn’t taste like much. Like rice, but different. I hope that helps!
