Cranberry Quinoa Stuffing

Friday, November 08, 2013

Bob, here at SP, suggested this website. I found a stuffing recipe. It is definitely not Fuhrman style, but it has possibilities! (And.. I seem to have lost my way in regards to Fuhrman-style eating. emoticon But I will find the trail again!) chris

Cranberry Quinoa Stuffing
(Quinoa pronounced keen-wah)
Serves 8

What you’ll need:

1 package Pancetta (bacon)
1 container Trader Joe’s Stuffing Starter Mix **
2 cups (dry) quinoa
1 quart low sodium chicken broth
1/4-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
1/2 cup dried cranberries

**TJ’s Stuffing Starter mix is about a 14.5 oz container of prechopped onions and celery seasoned with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

How to make it:

1. In a large pan over medium heat, saute the Pancetta and stuffing starter, until veggies are wilted and the Pancetta is crisp, about 10 minutes.
2. Transfer to the rice cooker (or if you want to cook it on the stove top, a large pot)
3. Add the quinoa, broth, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Cook on the “brown rice” setting, or until light and fluffy (stove top, cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes).
5. Gently stir in the cranberries.

    Mmmmm, sounds yummy - dressing or stuffing is my downfall at Thanksgiving. IN our family we do dressing, on the side, not stuffed in the bird, cooked in a casserole dish. Maybe for Christmas I could make a small dish of this for me.

    I'm glad you told us what those 2 things were! Or I couldn't have made it. I use regular bacon, and do my own vegetables. This sounds good as a side dish anytime. Thanks.
