PINK Quinoa? How? Where??

  • 5

I was at "Lemonade" today, and they had a fantastic looking quinoa salad. The quinoa was PINK... not brick red, but bright, almost fuschia Barbie pink.

How/where do you get pink quinoa??

  1. Possibly cooked with beets or colored with beet juice?

      Even if the beets are cooked separately and added to the salad, the pink will bleed and intensify as it sits. I think I'll make that for lunch today.

        Yep, if the OP google pink quinoa, they will find that it is about beets. There was one for a pink quinoa salad.

        2. You can make ordinary white quinoa pink by cooking it with beets, but quinoa naturally comes in a range of colors. For example: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003...
