Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Shall we count the ways for using food writer Saulsbury’s hefty tome on quinoa, that “near perfect balance of protein, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber”? She has compiled a fairly impressive roster of dishes that could fill in for any course, from breakfast to dessert. But one-ingredient cookbooks, unless wittily and creatively executed, often suffer from “muchness.” By the time readers reach midpoint, that mainstay ingredient is ready to be shuffled aside. Although lighter versions of familiar proteins are used, the feeling lingers that this is more than a gluten-free, vegan-haven book. Metrics rule—directions are couched in grams and milliliters. Finally, some recipes are simply better than others (e.g., apple custard pie, granola), but unless experienced cooks test the dishes, an average kitchen wiz won’t know. An adequate resource for lovers of the grain. --Barbara Jacobs

Review

This title offers exceptional value and belongs in most collections. (Library Journal 2013-01-01)

This is the only quinoa cookbook you will ever need. I've been a vegetarian for more than 25 years and have eaten quinoa for over a decade, but still I am astounded by the wealth of recipes and information in this book. I have never baked with quinoa before now--thanks to this book, I am now making quinoa flour on a regular basis in my coffee grinder and baking the most delicious, healthful breads, mufffins, flatbreads, even desserts, imaginable. I've even made the quinoa tortillas which were suprisingly easy and very, very good. An execllent resource of information as well as outstading, easy recipes.

Note: the majority of the recipes are vegtarian, many are vegan; however, the recipes that use lean chicken, beef and fish are easily converted to vegetarian by using something like tofu or tempeh or beans or chickpeas in place of the meat.

I've browsed other quinoa books in the past, but they never left me feeling inspired enough to want to add them to my already large cookbook collection. But since I've had so much success with Camilla's recipes in the past, I just knew this one wouldn't let me down, and it certainly did not!

For any of you who NEED tons of photos in your cookbooks, please do not let the fact that there are only a handful in this one dissuade you. These recipes can stand on their own, with or without photographic evidence.

I have a particular fondness for the Vegetarian Main Dishes chapter, but the book also features many other types of dishes: Breakfasts, Appetizers & Snacks, Soups, Stews, & Chilis, Salads & Sides, Seafood, Poultry, & Lean Meat Main Dishes, Breads, and Desserts. Yes, Desserts. This book has got it ALL.

So far I've made: Quinoa al Pomodoro; Swiss Chard Quinoa with Goat Cheese; Zucchini, Carrot and Butter Bean Quinoa; Caramelized Onion Tart; Scottish Oat Scones, Pumpkin Spice Scones, and Cinnamon Applesauce Bread (made as muffins). I highly recommend all of these recipes since they were all easy to make and incredibly delicious.

I have yet to have a single recipe fail and I feel confident that any recipe I choose to try will be a success -- and THAT really says something about the quality of this cookbook. All Camilla's recipes work extremely well for the home cook. They are tried & true recipes I can always count on and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Some of the unusual recipes in the 500 Best Quinoa Recipes: 100% Gluten-Free Super-Easy Superfood cookbook include: Smoky Quinoa-Sausage Sliders, Quinoa-Olive Tapenade, Herbed Cornbread Bites, Quick Quinoa and Tofu Stir-fry, California Quinoa Club Sandwich, and Sweet potato Whiskey Pie. What recipes will I likely try first? The Rosemary Walnut Bread sounds fabulous and it uses quinoa flour. There's also a fresh Herb and Pesto Bread with substitution to make it completely gluten-free if necessary. There are plenty of dishes that include meat as well as vegetarian and vegan version. All-in-all it's a well-rounded cook book highlighting this popular and nutritional ingredient.

Saulsbury also has included a great list of interesting information about the history of quinoa, handy tips, and nutritional values. The book includes a handful of great photos and a wipe-clean cover (thankfully since I've already spilled on it!).

I have been experimenting with quinoa for a little while now, but was bored with my regular recipes, so I was happy to come across 500 Best Quinoa Recipes which is full of wonderful, tasty quinoa recipes in any category you can imagine. Some of my favorite recipes from the book include: Andean Hash, Quinoa Cashew Power Balls, Quinoa Pilaf, Black Bean Quinoa Chipotle Chili, Cinnamon Raisin Cookies, Quinoa Almond Butter Blondies. I also really enjoyed the intro which talked in depth about cooking with quinoa. I would recommend this to anyone on a meat free or gluten free diet, but also to anyone that just likes to have a variety of flavors in their kitchen.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book via the publisher.

Robert Rose published cookbooks are nearly always a good choice - well written, easy to use. 500 Best Quinoa is a great entry into quinoa cookbooks - for both those new to the seed and those interested in trying it. From breakfast to dessert, meat eaters to vegetarians, there is plenty to choose from - and every recipe is gluten-free as well. The Quinoa Pizza Crust is fantastic, crispy, fast and it doesn't "feel" like you are missing wheat. Same with the Multi-Seed Bread we tried. Delicious and yeast free as well.
If you are looking for new inspiration, especially if you cook all from scratch, check it out. While it may not have a ton of photos, the recipes make up for that.

I've been semi-gluten free (about 80%) for almost a year now and I thought I was pretty creative with quinoa...and then I saw this book. 500 quinoa recipes - I felt like I hit the jackpot!! The day I got the book, I brought it with me to the nail salon, and the man in the pedicure chair next to me was reading over my shoulder and giving commentary about how delicious the recipes looked. I tagged a bunch to try and was excited to gather the ingredients and get started. I have three very picky gluten loving children so I wasn't sure how it was going to go...but I'm thrilled to report they have loved every single thing I've made! The waffles were especially popular. I tend to cook more in the colder months so I am looking forward to trying more things. Who knows - maybe the whole family will be gluten free by 2013!
