As other reviewers have mentioned, the subtitle is inaccurate. There are many recipes in the book that include all-purpose or bread flour.The other thing that bothers me is that there is no nutritional information for the recipes. When recipes are presented as being 'healthy' I think they should be backed up with nutritional information.Although there are only a handful of photographs, this e-cookbook is formatted VERY well and I didn't encounter any spelling or grammatical errors. Each recipe begins on its own page. I do wish that the table of contents, instead of grouping the recipes by categories, listed individual recipe titles.I enjoyed the historical and nutritional information, although I already knew most of it. I was surprised that the author didn't include the pronunciation of the word. I'm over 50 and I didn't realize until a few years ago that it is pronounced KEEN-wah, not kwin-NO-ah. But maybe everybody else already knows this - lol! Another tip that I've learned about quinoa is that you can cook it in a rice-cooker just like you cook rice.I liked the inclusion of roasted and pureed sweet potato and roasted butternut squash recipes, which are then added to several of the quinoa recipes. Those are two of my favorite things and so good for you. Some of the desserts sound kind of weird, but 'Chapter 9 - Going Global with Quinoa' with adaptions of various ethnic dishes using quinoa was particularly intriguing. The Mexican Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad is definitely on my menu for this week, there are several Risotto recipes that sound delicious, and Curried Quinoa Salad with Mango sounds delightful.This cookbook definitely expanded my thinking about uses for quinoa, which so far I've only used in salads and in meatloaf in place of bread crumbs. I wonder if you could make sushi rice using quinoa? Now that would be some serious fusion!
I have always been a fan of losing weight and staying healthy. But, it can be very expensive to eat out at vegan restaurants all of the time. I have been on a gluten free diet for about 4 months now. It has helped me out a lot.The reason I like this cookbook is because it has so many great recipes that you could use to maintain a healthy and gluten free diet. The recipes are great, it's like being on a gluten free diet without it tasting like a gluten free diet. There is so much variety to choose from, especially seafood. I'm not much of a cook, but I could definitely follow these recipes. I highly recommend!
For someone who isn't confident in the kitchen, quinoa was one of those foods I'd only heard of and thought of as difficult. The Quinoa Cookbook is user-friendly, non-intimidating, and makes sense of quinoa.The Quinoa Cookbook is part recipes, part information. The informational sections are very thorough. You're "introduced" to quinoa in learning about its history, how to prepare it, and the many health benefits of this grain. I had no idea that quinoa was a protein powerhouse! I was also unaware of how versatile quinoa is.The recipes in this book are broken down into breakfast, lunch and dinner, and dessert chapters. One doesn't think of many foods that are appropriate for different meals throughout a day, but quinoa has you covered - and this collection doesn't lack in the recipe department. Some of the recipes that you can find in this collection include: Quinoa Black Bean Salad, Quinoa Fried Chicken Cutlets, Quinoa Oatmeal Cookies, Quinoa Chocolate Cake. The author has also included a chapter of global recipes that utilize quinoa. Greek, Italian, Indian, Asian, Mexican... there is something that fits just about any cuisine.I'm still getting used to referencing cookbooks on my Kindle. I love cookbooks with pictures, but this collection doesn't have as many as I'd like. I would love to see more quinoa and how it's grown, prepared, etc. on display in the informational section. But don't let that deter you from The Quinoa Cookbook. This is a wonderful reference for anyone looking to try quinoa.
While quinoa may resemble rice in the way it looks and is prepared, it is a far more versatile food. This cookbook not only includes a basic history of quinoa and why it has become so popular, but also basic and advanced recipes. The book starts off with a handful of ways to prepare quinoa plain, and then jumps into full meal recipes. Bread, pancakes, creole salad, stuffed peppers, even oatmeal cookies are just a few ow the great recipes that fill this book. I was very pleased with the details in the recipes, and the photos that accompanied many of them. If you are looking to add a great new spread to your cooking skills, this book is sure to be a hit, for healthy eaters and unhealthy eaters alike.
This is not just a cookbook!Quinoa is an interesting food which so few people know about or use. But it's great to cook with, and is such a great food that goes with so many dishes! This book talks about that food in depth, and I found that information fantastic!The recipes are great and very appetizing, I can never get enough of quinoa recipes, such a great alternative to rice and couscous. The quinoa basic recipes are a great base of recipe to use with most meals, or variations of those basic recipes. I recommend this book to you if you care about what you and your family eats and you want a good range of recipes for breakfast lunch and dinner!Great book!
