Quinoa is an amino acid-rich (protein) seed that has a fluffy, creamy, can be slightly crunchy texture and a nutty aroma when cooked. Quinoa supplies complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids, making it a good choice for vegans concerned about adequate protein intake. On the other hand, pomegranate contains: Potassium, Vitamin A, B vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Iron. The seeds, which you can eat, contain fiber. This porridge is so filling and the pomegranates make it divine.
