If you love quinoa and want some amazing ideas for how to include it in your holiday celebrations this year, I have a treat for you! My amazing friend, Wendy Polisi, quinoa aficionado and creator of the hugely popular website, has written several cookbooks with innovative quinoa recipes that are vegan and vegetarian friendly (you can make substitutions) and gluten free. There are flour substitutions for those who are not intolerant to gluten, and Wendy provides comprehensive nutritional profiling (including Weight Watchers points) for all recipes.
With contributions from some of the top gluten free and vegan bloggers such as Ricki Heller, Dreena Burton, Amy Green, Stephanie Weaver, and others, there are over 148 pages of delicious quinoa recipes - breads, snacks & appetizers, main courses, salads, burgers, and desserts. Some stand outs include: Cranberry Quinoa Scones, Roasted Butternut Squash, Quinoa & Arugula Salad, Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes, Salted Quinoa Chocolate Bark with Pistachios, and this delicious Curried Butternut Squash and Quinoa Soup.
Wendy is the author of four incredible eBooks that sell like hotcakes: Quintessential Quinoa, Quinoa Fit, The Best of Cooking Quinoa, and The Holiday Quinoa Cookbook. All books are available for immediate download for PC/Mac, Kindle, Android and iOS devices including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Wendy and her hilarious hubby Vincent run their business while traveling around the country with their beautiful children. I love their fabulous sense of humor and commitment to excellent customer service. They’re just awesome people, with an inspiring story.
Check out Wendy’s amazing Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Quinoa Cookies that I shared last year. They're so yummy.
Enjoy the soup. It's delicious.
