This hearty natural quinoa from Health Connection is a must-have staple for any healthy pantry. Quinoa is a gluten-free “super-grain” that’s packed with protein, iron, fibre and a wealth of other essential nutrients. Just add water, boil and simmer, to whip up a filling bowlful or light and fluffy Health Connection quinoa. This is the perfect low-GI, gluten-free alternative to heavy, starchy grains; and a great way to give your daily diet a protein and iron boost, especially if you’re a vegan or vegetarian.

Why should you be eating more quinoa?

  • Gluten-free, with a low GI (glycaemic index)
  • High in protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids; great for vegans & vegetarians
  • Source of soluble & insoluble fibre, for healthy digestion (almost twice as much as other grains!)
  • Rich in essential minerals (iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium)
  • Source of lysine, which helps with tissue growth & repair

Did You Know? Quinoa was first eaten as a healthy staple thousands of years ago, in ancient Incan civilisation. Quinoa was considered “the gold of the Incas”, because it was believed to give their warriors improved strength and stamina!


Bring ⅓ cup quinoa to the boil in 1 cup liquid (water or stock). Cover & simmer until tender (14-18 minutes).

Recipe for Ginger Quinoa Granola:


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Combine the quinoa, Almonds, walnuts & Flax seed in a bowl; stir well.
  • Heat the maple syrup in a small microwave-safe bowl for 20 seconds.
  • Stir the Coconut Oil, Cinnamon & Salt into the maple syrup; mix until the Coconut Oil is completely melted.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry mix & toss to coat.
  • Spread the mixture in a thin layer over a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until golden-brown, stirring twice. Add the Ginger & Cranberries during the last 5 minutes of cook time.
  • Once cool, break up the granola into small clusters & enjoy with milk or yoghurt. The mixture will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
