AMARANTH

QUINOA
Amaranthus caudatus (Kiwuicha) is a species of annual flowering plant. It goes by common names such as love-lies-bleeding, pendant amaranth, tassel flower, velvet flower, foxtail amaranth, and quilete.
Many parts of the plants, including the leaves and seeds, are edible, and are frequently used as a source of food in India and South America — where it is the most important Andean species of Amaranthus, known as Kiwicha (see also andean ancient plants).
This species, as with many other of the Amaranths, are originally from the American tropics. The exact origin is unknown, as A. caudatus is believed to be a wild Amaranthus hybridus aggregate.

The red color of the inflorescences is due to a high content of betacyanins, like in the related species known as "Hopi Red Dye" amaranth.
Ornamental garden varieties sold under the latter name are either Amaranthus cruentus or a hybrid between A. cruentus and Amaranthus powelli. In indigenous agriculture, Amaranthus cruentus is the Central American counterpart to South American Amaranthus caudatus.

caudatus can grow anywhere from 3 to 8 feet in height, and grows best in full sun. It can handle a variety of conditions, both humid and arid.

Amaranthus cruentus is a common flowering plant species that yields the nutritious staple amaranth grain. It is one of three Amaranthus species cultivated as a grain source, the other two being A. hypochondriacus and A. caudatus.
It has several common names, including purple amaranth, red amaranth, and Mexican grain amaranth.

Amaranthus cruentus is a tall annual herb topped with clusters of dark pink flowers. The plant can grow up to 2 m (6 ft) in height, and blooms in summer to fall. It has now naturalized in most states. It is believed to have originated from Amaranthus hybridus, with which it shares many morphological features. This species was in use as a food source in Central America as early as 4000 BC. The plant is usually green in color, but a purple variant was once grown for use in Inca rituals.

Uses
The seeds are eaten as a cereal grain. They are black in the wild plant, and white in the domesticated form. They are ground into flour, popped like popcorn, cooked into a porridge, and made into a confectionery called alegría. The leaves can be cooked like spinach, and the seeds can be germinated into nutritious sprouts. While A. cruentus is no longer a staple food, it is still grown and sold as a health food.

It is an important crop for subsistence farmers in Africa.

Amaranth Seed
Several species are raised for amaranth "grain" in Asia and the Americas. This should more correctly be termed "pseudograin" (see below). They are highly edible by gluten intolerant individuals because they are not a member of the grass family and contain no gluten.
Ancient amaranth grains still used to this day include the three species, Amaranthus caudatus, Amaranthus cruentus, and Amaranthus hypochondriacus.  Although amaranth was (and still is) cultivated on a small scale in parts of Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, India, and Nepal, there is potential for further cultivation in the U.S and tropical countries and it is often referred to as "the crop of the future."    It has been proposed as an inexpensive native crop that could be cultivated by indigenous people in rural areas for several reasons: 1) it is easily harvested, 2) it produces lots of fruit and thus seeds, which are used as grain, 3) it is highly tolerant of arid environments, which are typical of most subtropical and some tropical regions, and 4) its seeds contain large amounts of protein and essential amino acids, such as lysine.  5) Amaranthus species are reported to have a 30% higher protein value than cereals, such as rice, wheat flour, oats, and rye.  6) It requires little fuel to cook. As befits its weedy life history, amaranth grains grow very rapidly and their large seedheads can weigh up to 1 kilogram and contain a half-million seeds.
Amaranth was one of the staple foodstuffs of the Incas, and it is known as kiwicha in the Andes today. It was also used by the ancient Aztecs, who called it huautli, and other Native America peoples in Mexico to prepare ritual drinks and foods. To this day, amaranth grains are toasted much like popcorn or martala and mixed with honey, molasses or chocolate to make a treat called alegría (joy in Spanish).
Because of its importance as a symbol of indigenous culture, and because it is very palatable, easy to cook, and its protein particularly well suited to human nutritional needs, interest in grain amaranth (especially A. cruentus and A. hypochondriacus) revived in the 1970s. It was recovered in Mexico from wild varieties and is now commercially cultivated. It is a popular snack sold in Mexico City and other parts of Mexico, sometimes mixed with chocolate or puffed rice, and its use has spread to Europe and parts of North America. Amaranth and quinoa are called pseudograins because of their flavor and cooking similarities to grains. These are dicot plant seeds, and both contain exceptionally complete protein for plant sources. Besides protein, amaranth grain provides a good source of dietary fiber and dietary minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and especially manganese. It has been claimed to be beneficial in preventing greying of hair.

Quinoa Food
Quinoa is an easy food to prepare

Quinoa is a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium) grown as a crop primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal as it is not a grass. Its leaves are also eaten as a leaf vegetable, much like amaranth, but the commercial availability of quinoa greens is currently limited.

Quinoa originated in the Andean region of South America, where it has been an important food for 6,000 years. Its name is the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name. Quinoa is generally undemanding and altitude-hardy, so it can be easily cultivated in the Andes up to about 4,000 meters.
Even so, it grows best in well-drained soils and requires a relatively long growing season. In eastern North America, it is susceptible to a leaf miner that may reduce crop success; this leaf miner also affects the common weed Chenopodium album, but C. album is much more resistant.

Similar Chenopodium species, such as Pitseed Goosefoot (Chenopodium berlandieri) and Fat Hen (Chenopodium album) were grown and domesticated in North America as part of the Eastern Agricultural Complex before maize agriculture became popular. Fat Hen, which has a widespread distribution in the Northern Hemisphere, produces edible seeds and greens much like quinoa, but in lower quantities.
Caution should be exercised in collecting this weed, however, because when growing in heavily fertilized agricultural fields it can accumulate dangerously high concentrations of nitrates.

Chenopodiums were also used in Europe as greens.

Wild distribution
Chenopodium quinoa (and a related species from Mexico, Chenopodium nuttalliae) is most familiar as a fully domesticated plant, but it was believed to have been domesticated in the Andes from wild populations of Chenopodium quinoa. There are non-cultivated quinoa plants (Chenopodium quinoa var.
melanospermum) which grow in the same area where it is cultivated, which probably are related to the wild progenitors, but which could instead be the descendents of cultivated plants.

The Incas, who held the crop to be sacred, referred to quinoa as "chisaya mama" or "mother of all grains", and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using 'golden implements'.
During the European conquest of South America quinoa was scorned by the Spanish colonists as "food for Indians", and even actively suppressed, due to its status within indigenous non-Christian ceremonies.

On another religious note, quinoa is considered by many Jews to be kosher for Passover, if properly processed.

Nutritional value
Quinoa was of great nutritional importance in pre-Columbian Andean civilizations, being secondary only to the potato, and followed in third place by maize.
In contemporary times this crop has come to be highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content (12%–18%) is very high.
Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete foodstuff.
This means that unlike wheat protein, one does not need to supplement it with complementary foods such as legumes containing the other essential amino acids. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron.
Quinoa is gluten free and considered easy to digest. Because of all these characteristics, quinoa is being considered as a possible crop in NASA's Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration manned spaceflights.

Saponin content

In its natural state quinoa has a coating of bitter-tasting saponins, making it essentially unpalatable. Most quinoa sold commercially in North America has been processed to remove this coating. Some have speculated that this bitter coating may have caused the Europeans who first encountered quinoa to reject it as a food source, even as they adopted other indigenous products of the Americas like maize and potatoes.
However, this bitterness has beneficial effects in terms of cultivation, as it is a crop that is relatively untouched by birds and thus requires minimal protection.
There have been attempts made to lower the saponin content of quinoa through selective breeding in order to produce sweeter and more palatable varieties of the crop. However, when these varieties were introduced by agronomists to native growers in the high plateau, they were rejected after just one season.
The growers returned to their traditional high saponin varieties, the reason being that despite the newer varieties giving 'magnificent' yields, birds had consumed the entire crop.

The saponin content in quinoa can be mildly toxic, as can be the oxalic acid content found in the leaves of all of the chenopodium family. However, the risks associated with quinoa are minimal provided that it is properly prepared and leaves are not eaten to excess.

Preparation

Quinoa is an easy food to prepare, has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and its mild, slightly nutty flavor makes it an alternative to white rice or couscous.

The first step in preparing quinoa is to remove the saponins, a process that requires soaking the grain in water for a few hours, then changing the water and resoaking again, or rinsing it in ample running water either in a fine strainer or in cheesecloth. Boxed quinoa typically has been pre-rinsed for convenience.

A common cooking method is to treat quinoa much like rice, bringing two cups of water to a boil with one cup of grain, covering at a low simmer and cooking for 14–18 minutes or until the germ separates from the seed.
The cooked germ looks like a tiny curl and should have a slight bite to it (like al dente pasta). Alternatively, one can use a rice cooker to prepare quinoa.

Vegetables and seasonings can also be added to make a wide range of dishes. It is also suited to vegetable pilafs, complementing bitter greens like kale.

Quinoa can serve as a high-protein breakfast food mixed with honey, almonds, or berries; it is also sold as a dry product, much like corn flakes.

Quinoa flour can be used in wheat-based and gluten-free baking. For the latter, it can be combined with sorghum flour, tapioca, and potato starch to create a nutritious gluten-free baking mix. A suggested mix is three parts quinoa flour, three parts sorghum flour, two parts potato starch, and one part tapioca starch. Quinoa flour can be used as a filling for chocolate.

Lastly, quinoa may be germinated in its raw form to boost its nutritional value.
Germination activates its natural enzymes and multiplies its vitamin and mineral content. In fact, quinoa has a notably short germination period: only 2-4 hours resting in a glass of clean water is enough to make it sprout and release gases, as opposed to, eg., 12 hours overnight with wheat. This process, besides its nutritional enhancements, softens the grains, making them suitable to be added to salads and other cold foods.

Name
The name ultimately comes from the Quechua kinua or kinoa. There are multiple other native names in South America:

Quechua: ayara, kiuna, kuchikinwa, achita, kinua, kinoa, chisaya mama
Aymara: supha, jopa, jupha, juira, ära, qallapi, vocali
Chibchan: suba, pasca
Mapudungun: dawe, sawe

Homestyle Quinoa

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/2 package Gimme Lean Beef Flavored meat substitute
1/2 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 cup frozen corn, thawed vegetable broth or wine for sauteeing
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (start with 1/8 teaspoon and add as you like)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
salt to taste
Fresh Parsley, minced
Fresh Cilantro, minced (I left it out 'cause I can't stand it)

In a non-stick dutch oven, saute the onion and garlic in veggie broth for two-three minutes. Add the Gimme Lean, breaking it up with the spatula as it cooks. (Use more veggie broth as needed). Let this cook for about five minutes while you prepare the quinoa:

Rinse the quinoa in cold water and drain. Bring the two cups water to boil and add the quinoa. Cook 10-15 minutes, until quinoa has absorbed the water and you can see the white germ ring.

While the quinoa is cooking, add the remaining ingredients (except the spices) to the dutch oven and stir while cooking. When the quinoa is cooked, add it to the dutch oven and stir to combine. Add herbs and spices and cook a few minutes more to soften the parsley. Taste and re-spice as needed.

Celiac is a digestive disorder in which the small intestine has a toxic reaction to gluten, a protein commonly found in wheat and other grains.
Celiac
Treatment consists of a gluten free diet for life, which leads to a full recovery in most cases.


 

Quinoa Salad
6 servings.

1 cup quinoa, rinsed several times just before cooking
2 cups water
1 red pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
1 carrot, scrubbed and diced (can be steamed briefly or not)
6 scallions, roots and wood stem removed, minced
1/4 cup cooked corn (I just thawed some frozen kernels)
1/2 cup currants
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped (or cilantro)
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon cumin
2 Tablespoons maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons raspberry vinegar

Bring water to a boil in a 2-3 quart saucepan. Add quinoa, reduce to a simmer, and cook, covered, for about 20 minutes, until all the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork, replace cover, and let sit off of heat for 5 minutes. Place quinoa in a large mixing bowl to cool.

Saute the garlic in saute liquid of choice for 2 minutes. Add the cumin and saute another minute. Add sweetener, stir to melt, remove from heat, and allow to cool. Add lemon juice and vinegars. Mix well and pour onto quinoa, along with the vegetables, parsley, and currants. Mix gently but
thoroughly. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator to chill.
Serve on a bed of greens.

Wild Rice/Quinoa Salad

1/2 cup wild rice
1 to 1 1/2 cups water and/or broth
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water and/or broth
3 or 4 whole scallions, trimmed and chopped
2 or 3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup roasted sweet red peppers, diced
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon minced parsley
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

Add wild rice to boiling water/broth and simmer until rice is tender, about 45 minutes to an hour.

Add well-rinsed quinoa to boiling water/broth and simmer until all liquid is absorbed. I forgot to notice how long this takes.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the wild rice, quinoa, scallions, garlic, roasted peppers, vinegar, parsley, mustard, pepper and salt.
This salad really tastes best room temperature.

In the original recipe, he calls for 1 teaspoon dried thyme, and fresh parsley rather than parsley flakes. I took it as written above to a dinner party of non-vegetarians, and had several requests for the recipe.
