When a new, exotic ingredient comes onto the scene, it seems like there are suddenly recipes which feature it coming at you from all directions. But to get the real benefit of a healthy ingredient, such as quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), you don't need a one-off recipe designed by a hatted chef which takes three hours to prepare - you need something delicious and easy that you can cook for your family regularly - turning the exotic new ingredient into a much-loved staple. By now you've surely heard about the health benefits of this South-American super grain (which is actually a seed!). But in case you haven't here is a little refresher - it's high protein, wheat-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, contains all nine essential amino acids (the only such grain in the world), as well as an alphabetic host of vitamins and minerals. And that's just the shortened version! Luckily, however, you don't need to know everything about quinoa, you just need to know how to cook it. And with this handy cookbook, you can do exactly that. With Quinoa For Families by Rena Patten, you can learn how to incorporate this wonderful food into every meal, including dessert! There's even a section to help to incorporate it into kids' food - so your children can reap the benefits too. It's only a matter of time before you too are keen for quinoa!
