Recipes From Quinoa Revolution

Transform your traditional eating habits with 150 new and great-tasting quinoa recipes in Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming’s new book, Quinoa Revolution (2012 Penguin Canada). In addition to being one of the world’s healthiest foods, quinoa has a long list of properties that makes it versatile in a number of recipes. Quinoa Revolution shows that the grain is not only used to boost nutrition, but that it can also enhance taste or texture, thicken, replace gluten and increase protein. Learn tips and tricks for the preparation of quinoa, solutions for cooking it in a variety of liquids and guidelines on how to use sprouted quinoa. Here, try two recipes for fall: acorn squash stuffed with quinoa (pictured above) and sweet chocolate cupcakes topped with avocado icing.
