Quinoa cookbook?

Disclaimer: I am not very good at CH searches so I apologize if there is a thread somewhere that covers this question. I have looked but not found what I am looking for.

I have a friend who has newly discovered quinoa and loves it. She also loves to cook. I need to buy her a gift and thought a quinoa cookbook would be perfect. I know there are vegetarian cookbooks galore, and healthy eating cookbooks which contain recipes devoted to cookbook. What I would like is a good healthy eating cookbook where quinoa is the main ingredient in all or most recipes.

Any suggestions? Thanks so much in advance, Julie

      Thanks for those links, wyogal.

      I would love to know if there are any quinoa cookooks that CH's have used and would recommend.

      This is not only a quinoa cookbook, but it is a great cookbook that has a quinoa chapter. I bought it when I first learned about quinoa and it helped me perfect my cooking of quinoa. I loved all the recipes in it, although some of them are quite simple.

        I just downlosded one onto my kindle for free. Quinoa Recipes The complete cookbook for the grain free Diet by Karen Follett.

        it isn't a huge book but the price is certainly right.
