Demand for it has spread worldwide and it is now cultivated in the United States. USE Today, quinoa can be found in most supermarkets, Hispanic and natural food stores. Quinoa comes in a variety of colors such as white, yellow, gray, red and black. In the United States, white and red quinoa are most readily available. Before cooking, always rinse quinoa well: submerge in water and rub the seeds between fingers to remove its slightly bitter coating; change water and repeat until water runs clear. Drain.
