I was not aware I could sprout these quinoa seeds, using the sprouts in salads and sandwiches for an even more nutritious meal. This books shows me how. And I never really considered quinoa as a source for pizza dough, muffins, or pancakes. This book offers easy-to-follow recipes for these and other uses.
The biggest surprise for me, though, is learning that I can use quinoa as a key ingredient in making my own trail bars for hikes. It will save me a bundle. I'm a weekend volunteer trail maintainer for a stretch of the Appalachian Trail in Virginia and packing lightweight, nutritious items for these strenuous days are vital. For my next work trip, I plan to share some of my homemade quinoa trail bars with my hiking buddies. It's about time they had something decent to nibble on while on the trail!
The book contains preparation for:
Soups and Stews
Side Dishes and Pilafs
Meat and Fish
Picnics, Packed lunches, and other portable goodies
Parties, potlucks and presents
While the recipes are easy to understand and tell how many people are served, they do not provide the macro-nutrients or the glycemic index information. There is, however, a recipe index which is useful.
Some of the ingredients are not found in every kitchen so you'll likely have to plan what to cook and take a special trip to the grocery store.
