Quinoa is THE super food to eat, and it is easy to see why. With twice the protein content of rice or barley, quinoa is also a source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, several B vitamins, vitamin E, and dietary fiber.
Quinoa is among the least allergenic of all the grains, making it a fantastic wheat-free choice. It contains all nine essential amino acids making it a complete-protein source and an excellent choice for vegans who may struggle to get enough protein in their diets. Naturally high in dietary fiber, quinoa is a slowly digested carbohydrate, making it a good low-GI option—this is THE superfood we should all be eating more of!
But how? We Love Quinoa is the essential recipe book you need to make sure you don’t miss out on this latest health craze. With recipes ranging from pancakes to innovative salads, pizzas, breakfast muffins, burgers and even chocolate brownies, there truly is something for everyone, plus techniques for preparation and additional variations to add even more quinoa recipes to your repertoire.
