tastes nothing like fresh quinoa

Bought for ease as I was catering for lots of people. Had to throw away. Overly nutty taste. Tasted stale and hugely unpleasant. Too strong to disguise. Awful.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

delicious staple

Healthier than rice or potato, these quinoa packs have become a staple in our diet. Totally delicious hot with meat or fish, and cold straight out the packet with feta,veg and balsamic as a salad. Only lost one star as they are pretty pricey.

A good standby to have in the cupboard

Used instead of couscous in a salad with chopped herbs, kale, chopped sugar snaps, peppers, grated carrots and feta and dressed with olive oil and lemon juice, salt and pepper. We really enjoyed it and leftovers kept well in the fridge. While I'm sure cooked from scratch would probably taste best, its a good store cupboard ingredient to have on standby and also makes for some variety as I always use couscous for this kind of salad. I am buying it again!

excellent... or mouldy

This is really nice (you wouldn't really eat it on its own, just as you wouldn't normally eat rice alone). But I'd hesitate to buy it now because we keep getting mouldy packs, like maybe 1 in 6 of ours have been mouldy. You can often see it's mouldy through the window in the pack, but yesterday's looked fine, until I poured it into the salad bowl only to see that the central parts were mouldy (ruining all my other ingredients). Merchant Gourmet are aware that this sometimes happens and sent vouchers for their products last time, but you can only use them in store - no use if you can't get out much. Surprised no other reviewers have mentioned it, so maybe we've been unlucky.

Terrible taste

Overseasoned and tastes rank, while simple cooked quinoa without added flavours would be perfect.


Quinoa Bocaditos with Chilli Cheese

Quinoa Bocaditos with Chilli Cheese

These delicious 'little bites' are inspired by the tapas foods of South America. These croquettes are crispy on the outside and soft and crumbly on the inside, we have opted to use quinoa grains which are very nutritious. Serve hot with the chilli cheese dip.
