Traditional stuffing, while utterly delicious, is not part of my diet anymore. It’s full of bread and would make me feel awful if I ate it. But when stuffing is made with quinoa, it’s a total game-changer.
First, it’s super easy to make gluten-free. Second, it doesn’t fill you up as much – which means more room for that extra slice of pie you know you’re craving. And third, quinoa is so much more nutritious than bread, so you’ll be confident sharing a healthy dish with your family this Thanksgiving.
But what’s the perfect quinoa stuffing recipe? I honestly don’t think there’s one perfect dish, so I’ve pulled together the top 10 quinoa stuffing recipes I’ve found across the web, to hopefully give you some inspiration and ideas for your own meal!
Are you ready to spice up your stuffing this year?
