I have to say I was a bit skeptical about frozen grains and was worried the texture would be seriously mushy. The quinoa kept its nutty flavor and crunchy texture — better than when I make myself. I have taken to heating a half a cup of quinoa for 45 seconds in the microwave and serving pre-cooked Indian curry over it for a healthy lunch that takes two and half minutes to make. I served the Spicy Thai Brown Rice as a side dish with grilled fish and veggies. It was too spicy for my girls, but my hubby and I enjoyed it. He was even surprised it had been frozen.
The ingredient listed on the bag of quinoa is simply quinoa. No preservatives are added. The Thai Rice ingredient list is simple too: long grain brown rice, soy sauce, green bell pepper, tomato, eggs, sriracha (hot sauce), rice bran oil, sesame oil, fish sauce.
