Quinoa Cookbook: Nutrition Facts, Cooking Tips, and 116 Superfood Recipes for a Healthy Dietby Rockridge Press
You've read about quinoa's myriad health benefits, noticed its migration on to menus, even learned how to correctly pronounce its name, and now the important part: How do you incorporate quinoa into your kitchen? There's little wonder why quinoa-a gluten-free, superfood rich in protein and antioxidants-has transformed from obscure ancient seed into modern culinary staple. While quinoa has become well known, what is lesser known is that the grain-like food, often referred to as the perfect protein, can be incorporated into practically any recipe from breakfast to dessert. Fortunately, that's where The Quinoa Cookbook enters the story. IS IT DIFFICULT TO USE? One aspect of quinoa that you might not be aware of is that the superfood is easy to prepare. And The Quinoa Cookbook makes it even easier by offering hundreds of simple recipes to help you cut down on gluten (or eliminate it completely), lose weight and incorporate quinoa into your everyday life. The versatile quinoa can serve as the main ingredient in recipes such as the delicious Quinoa Risotto With Mushrooms and Thyme. At the same time it is a healthy substitute as demonstrated in the Flourless Chocolate Cake or Quinoa Porridge. DID YOU KNOW? Quinoa contains all nine of the essential amino acids humans need to stay healthy Quinoa is a rich source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, zinc and dietary fiber Quinoa promotes weight loss and is one of the only plants with protein; it is closely related to species such as beets and spinach THE QUINOA COOKBOOK INCLUDES: Hundreds of recipes that introduce quinoa into every meal of the day and dessert too A "Bonus Section" containing a sample menu for both everyday dining and entertaining Recipes that incorporate quinoa into your favorite international dishes from Japan to Mexico A chapter dedicated to ensuring that you understand how to work with quinoa and achieve the tastiest results

Sold on the Cookbook and the Super Food! In my never ending search to incorporate healthy eating into my family’s diet, I eagerly purchased this book wanting to check out what all the hype was surrounding this new “super food”. I am so glad I did. The book starts out with a simple and easy to follow introduction on Quinoa, where it came from, its benefits and why it is so healthy for us. I learned just the right amount of information without going into too much depth. Quinoa is a gluten free product that is very high in protein and anti-oxidants. It can be incorporated into many dishes, can be ground into flour, or cooked right on the stove infused with flavors! The book also includes a section on proper storage of Quinoa, which I found extremely helpful as well as best practices for cooking and how to know when it’s “done”. Now on to the recipes…. The book breaks down the recipes into simple and easy to follow directions, some include substitutions if you are a Vegan or Vegetarian. The recipes range from simple breakfast foods to salads and main dinner meals. I decided to ease into the recipes and try a simple salad and made the Waldorf salad with Quinoa. I loved it! The Quinoa was cooked perfectly, thanks to the cooking tips and the combination of apples, walnuts, yogurt and Quinoa with delicious! I am hooked and so is my family! Next up… Butternut Squash Quinoa Soup!
I have been trying to incorporate more quinoa into my diet, because of its nutritional value, but quickly grew bored eating the same quinoa based salads over and over again. I loved that this book provided such a wide variety of recipes, lots of international flavor, and complete meal ideas, including hot and cold side dishes, entrees, breakfast foods, and even desserts. I also feel better about indulging in comfort foods like bread and cookies using these recipes, which include the healthy addition of quinoa. The simplicity of the recipes and clear directions make this book a must have. You do not need to invest hours and hours in the kitchen in order to create a tasty, healthy meal. Another plus, if you are not familiar with quinoa, you can easily learn all you need to know about its origins, nutritional value, and preparation techniques from the informational sections.
Love love love it. I have lost 11 lbs. Great book, great recipes. Would definitely recommend it.
ESSENTIAL AND FUN QUINOA INFORMATION I can't imagine a better guide to the world of quinoa. This book offers a surprising history of the nutrient-packed quinoa. You'll definitely get an explanation of why quinoa is considered a superfood and find that there's a lot of quinoa friendly cuisine available. I read the book and the next morning made the Quinoa Pancakes with Vanilla and Orange Zest. They're became an instant classic in my family! The book has over 50 recipes that incorporate quinoa for any meal during the day. And that includes desserts. For an educating read about quinoa as well as a very broad range of recipes I can't imagine a better read.
