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!

Cooking with Quinoa for Dummies --- by Cheryl Forberg. --- For sure I haven’t read every Quinoa book out there: the books seem to have become a bit of a bibliophilic growth industry, somewhat akin to the output of gluten-free cookery books. Forberg’s book has a lot going for it: a lot of recipes (as you might expect) that demonstrate Q’s versatility; extensive discussion of the rationale that supports the use of this versatile food in a very healthy diet; and something I don’t associate with the Dummies series of books: colour photograph eye-candy to provide you with that extra incentive to try your hand at something Q. This book is a great place to start your investigation of Quinoa but perhaps, after you’ve tried one or two recipes, you might even want to supplement the library’s copy of C with Q for one of your store-bought own. Happy cooking, happy Q-ing.

This book was such a disappointment. Almost every savory recipe called for something called smoked salt. You can make it yourself by putting kosher salt in a smoker or order it on-line from a company in New York - really? in a "For Dummies" book? The recipe for California rolls was confusing. The recipe was supposed to make 4 rolls. It called for 6 pieces of Nori, and directed you to put 1/8th of the fillings on each roll. What??? The only recipe I'm going to try is for a salad dressing that has nothing to do with quinoa.
