Over 140 recipes starring quinoa —gluten-free, protein-packed, nutritious and delicious!

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has many health benefits. It is high in fiber, and is a great gluten-free alternative. It is rich in B vitamins, zinc, magnesium, and iron. Plus, it provides complete protein in vegetarian or vegan dishes. Not only does it have all of these phenomenal health qualities (and more), quinoa is also delicious and extremely versatile. Quinoa can be made into a breakfast porridge, stuffed into a wrap for lunch, combined with vegetables for a hearty salad, rolled with spices to make a delicious burger, and added to an assortment of cakes and breads for an extra protein punch. With over 140 recipes, Cooking with Quinoa For Dummies shows you how to incorporate quinoa into your healthy lifestyle.
