Recipe: Easy Quinoa Stuffing

Easy Quinoa Stuffing

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

  1. Cook the quinoa in 4 cups of water: Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. When it is done, you will see a little ring around each grain. Remove from heat and let cool. Then fluff with a fork. I often do this the night before.
  2. If using the optional butter, melt it and saute the onion and celery for 3 or 4 minutes.
  3. Combine cooked quinoa, onion, celery, and seasonings. Taste the mixture and adjust seasonings.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the cavity of your turkey. For a small turkey or a large roasting chicken, prepare half the recipe.

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.

  1. Add 2/3 cup chicken stock to the stuffing, stirring lightly to combine.
  2.  Place in a covered casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes at 350ºF.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
