After spending time in the granola forests of Seattle, I decided to try to buy some keeeeenwah (Quinoa).
Superfresh apparently was out of stock, so I walked to Essene Market on 4th street.
I have a love hate relationship with Essene.
I love that it is a small community store that has a lot of healthy and different products.
I hate that scallions cost about 2 dollars a bunch.
And that there is no meat. And that they claim their “on-site bakery offering tantalizing sweets — all dairy-free and made without refined sugar.” Like that is possible.
Anyway – Essene exceeded my expectations of Quinoa. Did you know that there was more than one variety? I didn’t. In fact I didnt really know what it was and has to look at the ingredients to make sure it was Vegan (for a friend coming for a BBQ). The only ingredient was Quinoa because it is Quinoa. Whoa.
Anyway the following are photos of my shopping trip. Stay tuned to photos of me actually cooking and eating it.
