Savory Quinoa Stuffing Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


1 1/4 C quinoa

1 1/2 C low-sodium vegetable stock

1/2 C finely chopped white onion

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 vegan sausages (such as Field Roast Apple Sage)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 C finely chopped leek

1 C finely chopped celery

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

2/3 C dried cranberries


1Rinse and drain quinoa. Add to a pot with low-sodium vegetable stock and bring to a boil, then turn down to low and put a lid on the pot. It will take approximately 10 minutes to cook and for all the liquid to absorb.

2Meanwhile, heat a large pan over medium, and sauté the white onion in vegetable oil for 1 to 2 minutes until softened.

3Add crumbled vegan sausage to the pan and brown for 5 to 6 minutes. Then add leeks, garlic, celery, sage, nutmeg, and ground black pepper and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes until the vegetables look soft and the sausage is nice and browned.

4When the quinoa is done, remove from heat and stir in the cranberries. Then stir in the sausage and leek mixture. Serve immediately, or you can make this ahead of time and refrigerate, then bake the stuffing in the oven covered with tin foil for 20 minutes at 350°F to warm through.
