Amazing Quinoa Recipe


I tried this recipe from the Wannabe Chef — it was so delish!  It tastes like Thanksgiving day stuffing and has so much yummy stuff in it!  Next time I will definitely make a double recipe!

The Best Quinoa Dressing

Ingredients(Makes 8 servings)

  • 2 cups quinoa, rinsed
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar

To start, dice your vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Once diced, add them to a large pot to sauté over low-medium heat in some cooking oil until soft and translucent(about 10 minutes).

When the vegetables have been cooked, add in the quinoa, chicken broth, and all the seasonings except for the sugar. Bring the broth to a bubble, cover with a lid, and turn off the heat. After 15-20 minutes, the quinoa should have absorbed all the broth. If not, turn the heat on medium to boil off the rest of the liquid.

At the end of cooking, add in the sugar and fold it in while fluffing the quinoa. Transfer to a large dish and serve hot. It also tastes just as good reheated.
