Quinoa stuffing is light and delicious, easier to make than bread stuffing, and it is gluten free. I always prepare my stuffing without the optional butter, as I find the juices from the turkey give it a sufficiently rich taste. If you prefer to use butter in your stuffing, it does add flavour, especially if you are baking it "casserole style" rather than inside the turkey.
2 cups dry quinoa (6 cups cooked)
2 medium onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
3 stalks celery, chopped in 1/4 -1/2 inch pieces (about 2 cups)
2 Tbsp dried sage
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp celery salt
2 tsp Herbamere
Fresh ground pepper
Optional: 1/2 cup melted butter
Quinoa Stuffing, Casserole Style
If you wish to make stuffing when you are not cooking a turkey or chicken, or if you have extra stuffing that does not fit into your turkey, try this option.
