Kaniwa: the new Quinoa

Meet the new superfood: kaniwa. Just like its cousin Quinoa, Kaniwa comes from the South America's Andean Region and it's also a seed (sometimes referred to as "pseudo-grain"). It is also gluten-free. Kaniwa (pronounced ka-nyi-wa) is a tiny seed, about half the size of quinoa, but otherwise very similar. It's high in protein, fiber, ALA omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and calcium. Kaniwa has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and can be used it in salads, soups, side dishes, or even as a porridge for breakfast.
