Organic Alert: Product Review: GoGo Quinoa - Granissimo Vegetarian Paella

I received a few different GoGo Quinoa products to try out! Among this products were the Granissimo Vegetarian Paella, 3 Grain Pancake Mix, 4 Grains Hot Cereal, Granissimo Pilaf (in Basmati and Wild Quinoa), Mushroom and Quinoa Cream Soup and Minestrone Soup.

Today I will be trying out the Granissimo Vegetarian Paella. The cooking instructions are fairly simple...

"Add 2 cups of water (or broth) to package contents and bring to a boil. Let simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 3 minutes before serving. "

My first impression is that for only 10 mg of sodium it is extraordinarily flavorful... its so good! I'm burning my mouth because it tastes so good and it is still too hot to eat!  The smell is enticing and the texture of the grains is pleasing.

GoGo Quinoa are currently offering $5 shipping for the month of December for Canadians which I completely welcome. Any break on the pocket book, this time of year or any other is certainly appreciated by my household.

You can connect with GoGo Quinoa on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Worst product quality management ever. I was buying there Quinoa cookies for over a year thinking it has no saturated fat and only 1 gram of fat. Come to find out recently that they made a mistake and the cookies have 2.5 grams of saturated fat and 9 grams of fat. Never buying anything from them again
