A comparison between black and white quinoa is similar to wild and domestic rice. Black quinoa is darker in color, crunchier in texture and has a stronger grain-like flavor. White quinoa is considerably less earthy in all respects. Both varieties exhibit the characteristic crunch unique to quinoa ('like vegetable caviar'). Cooked quickly, quinoa yields its famous crunchy texture. Simmered longer with more water, quinoa softens to a texture more reminiscent of cooked breakfast cereal.
