So basically, you can put quinoa in, like, whatever. Or you can just put stuff in quinoa instead. Okay.

Based on the title and description I though this would be a book packed full of clean, healthy recipes. I was dismayed to find out I had been mislead. Many of the recipes call for pre-made ingredients as well as a heavy reliance on dairy. I had higher hopes for this cookbook.

this one was 10x better than this other one that i went through. i actually went and put this in my amazon cart. there were many things that i would make. i love the taste of quinoa and to see so many different ways to use it and make it taste good YUM!!!

The title snookered me in. I love quinoa & have a number of most excellent recipes, several of them from one of the Moosewood cookbooks. However, they layout was too busy, the glossy finish more appropriate for a coffee table edition, the binding too tight . . . and the recipes were a disappointment. Why? Too many packaged ingredients in some of the recipes. Now wouldn't you think a Polenta Lasagna recipe would start with telling you how to make quinoa polenta, rather than calling for "2 18 ...more

Only a few pages of nutritional information and the different types of quinoa.

I've tried one recipe, which was delicious, and plan to try more. This is not a vegetarian/vegan cookbook, but most of the recipes can be tweaked.

I found the layout of the pages a little confusing and busy.

I would recommend to anyone interested in cooking with quinoa.

While there are lots of pictures, they didn't look very appetizing. Lots of adding cooked quinoa to green salads. Lots of premade ingredients always make me less interested in the recipe and cookbook overall. The editing is very messed up which makes me wonder about the overall quality...
Take away: try using guinoa flour.

The recipes look good, but sometimes an ingredient is listed, but then not used. I think I will try some of the recipes from www.cookingquinoa.net before investing in this book. The salads look good and all the different dressings; was also intrigued by a couple of the breakfast items.
Michelle
Liked this. There was even nutritional data, but somewhat uneven (for some reasons, some recipes had protein content in the nutritional info and some didn't.) Will definitely be trying a few recipes from here.
Love & Flour
This cookbook is full of original ideas, but a lot of the recipes are simple variations on other recipes found in the book. The photography leaves a lot to be desired.

Looking forward to trying many of these recipes. Will probably have to purchase a copy!
Laura
I enjoyed the one recipe that I did make (quinoa with kale pecan pesto). It was delish!
Choopie
Can't wait to try these recipes when I have my new kitchen.
