Quinoa (which is part of the same family as Lamb's quarters) has long been grown for its protein-rich seeds.
It has been a very important food for over 6,000 years with chia.
Like beans, potatoes or maize, red quinoa was the staple food of pre-Columbian civilizations, but unlike the latter, it did not catch the attention of the Spanish conquerors.

The plant is very rich in protein, and saponin (which is also found in the soapwort).
