Gluten-Free Cookbooks: Cooking with Quinoa for Dummies
I have to say I find the title of the "Dummies" books a bit insulting, but heck you don't have to take it personally. Their approach to giving out information is easily accessible to all: dummies and savants alike.
Cooking with Quinoa For Dummies by Cheryl Forberg, RD is filled with recipes and a few photos sure to get your mouth watering.
Touted as "the gold of the Incas", quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has many health benefits. It is high in both protein and fiber, gluten-free, and has been known to help those with cardiovascular health problems, as well as people who suffer from migraine headaches. Research also shows that the nutritional composition of quinoa is important in fighting breast cancer, especially in post-menopausal women. It is a great gluten alternative, and provides complete protein in vegetarian or vegan dishes. Not only does it have all of these phenomenal health qualities, 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 and breadcrumbs to make a delicious burger, and added to an assortment of cakes and breads for an extra protein punch. Cooking with Quinoa for Dummies shows you how you can easily incorporate quinoa into each and every one of your meals and snacks.

My whole family loves quinoa, especially my kids
! I even love it in chocolate. It cooks up faster than rice and is great alone or part of a dish, even soup!
This is not a vegetarian cookbook, but there are plenty of veggie recipes. I want to try the quinoa Nutty Banana Bread recipe!
