    Starrynews's Note:

    I found this on a hunt for a gluten free stuffing that would appeal to a wide audience. It is delicious and was much enjoyed by all. It originates from Cooking Light, NOVEMBER 2006. Love that magazine! I subsituted dried cranberries for the cherries with great success. Note: We use no added salt in our household, so be sure to taste test and see if you want to add any.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare quinoa according to package directions, using broth instead of water. When it is done cooking and all broth has been absorbed, fluff with fork.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, spray a skillet with cooking spray and then add the butter.
    3. 3
      Melt butter over medium high heat. Once melted, add leeks, celery, pepper, and sage.
    4. 4
      Saute until leeks and celery are tender, about 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add garlic and cook for an additional minute.
    6. 6
      Combine veggie mixture and quinoa. Stir in cherries and walnuts.
    7. 7
      Heat through just before serving.

      Fantastic and easy! I really liked this combination of simple ingredients. I subbed dried cranberries for the cherries but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I might increase the ratio of quinoa next time, but that's because I love quinoa...

      Wow! This was so yummy. I also used this as a side dish. I was thinking that it would be delicious as a stuffing in bell peppers. Made for Veg 'n Swap tag. Thanks for posting!

      This is delicious. I used red quinoa and made half a recipe. It was the perfect side for a roasted chicken. I would definitely recommend this recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
