The book is split into sections of: soups, breads and pasta, salads, vegetarian, meat, poultry, seafood, and sweets, where of course every recipe includes quinoa. It took me a while before I realized that the recipes are all gluten free, which makes it a great resource for celiacs as well.
The recipes span a variety of cultures, including Greek, Mexican, and Middle Eastern influence, as well as more traditional Western European fare and makes use of interesting combinations of flavors to very good effect. The author has come up with a variety of fantastic soups and salads that has me drooling every time I pick up the book.
If I had a qualm about this book it is that it does not state clearly what the measurements "1 cup" and "1 tbsp" mean. The book is published in Australia, where these generally are interpreted as "250ml and 20ml", unlike in the US (236ml and 15ml) and UK (250ml and 15ml), where they are interpreted slightly differently. These are minor differences for most recipes, but may be significant for the breads and muffins.
This is my go-to cookbook at the moment when deciding what to make in the coming week and would make a valuable addition to the kitchen of anyone who has easy access to quinoa.
I was looking for something simpler. Also most recipes' ingredients are listed as weights, not US customary units, FYI.
