Quinoa Stuffing

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
  • 2 cups organic vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 heaping cup diced celery
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • Small handful of fresh sage, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper

 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium sized pot bring 1 cup of vegetable broth to a boil. Add in the quinoa and bay leaf, salt, pepper and stir. Set to low heat and simmer with a lid on for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat (do not lift lid) and allow the quinoa to steam for another 10 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over low heat. Add in the chopped celery and onion. Cook until they begin to become clear, about 5-10 minutes. Turn the heat up to medium and in the vegetable broth, sage, garlic powder and season with more salt and pepper if needed, simmer for a few minutes. Combine the quinoa with the veggie mixture and add the last 1/2 cup of vegetable broth, stir. Place the stuffing mix into a greased oven safe dish. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, then broil until golden.
