Quinoa - pronounced keen-wah - is a grain, but not just any grain. It is considered to be almost a complete food. It is very high in protein, full of vitamins, gluten- and wheat-free, cholesterol-free and usually organic. Most importantly, it is simply delicious! When cooked, it has a very delicate texture and is a versatile ingredient for a whole range of meals.
Quinoa is rich in magnesium, zinc, vitamin E and selenium which all help to control weight and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
This book contains 91 recipes with imagery.
