Quinoa Turkey Stuffing


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water (or stock of your choice)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (I like to use the variety pack)
  • 2 medium apples - peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning


Bring water to a boil in a medium pot on high heat. Add quinoa. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 12 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, combine the onion, mushrooms, apples, pine nuts, cherries, garlic, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, and quinoa. Mix well. Pack lightly into uncooked turkey. Roast turkey as directed.
