Quinoa, flakes, flour and seeds; four essential elements that make up a healthy diet. 

Quinoa is a grain, but not just any grain. It is considered to be almost a complete food as it is very high in protein, full of vitamins, gluten and wheat free, cholesterol-free and usually organic. And it is simply delicious.
In the kitchen, quinoa, flakes, flour and seeds have a huge range of uses and lend themselves beautifully to so many dishes. When cooked, they have a very delicate texture and can be used in soups and sweets, and make wonderful salads, pasta, breads and delicious vegetarian and non vegetarian meals.

This exciting new collection of recipes is a must-have addition to every health conscious cook’s repertoire.
