    Tried this as a wheat-free stuffing. I just ate my second serving. It has great flavor. Though it isn't like normal stuffing it is a great side that is light and nutritious. I made two changes- craisins instead of raisins and I added some butter b/c it is stuffing. I am excited to try the batch that comes out of the bird. One batch makes enough to fit in a smaller bird plus a 9 by 9 pan.  -  11 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Light and Refreshing, much better than bread stuffing  -  02 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is delicious. Like another reviewer, I cooked the quinoa in chicken broth. I combined all the ingredients, cooked it in the crock pot and served it as a side dish with some chicken. I would definitely make this again.  -  05 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
