I invented this recipe because I found it impossible to fit anything more in the oven when cooking a big family feast, therefore this stuffing is made on the hob and tastes just as delicious. Great served alongside Christmas turkey, roasties and all the other yummy side dishes.
We all know and love quinoa in refreshing salads, but it can also be used as a warm, tasty and filling stuffing, particularly ideal for big feasts such as Christmas. The beauty of this recipe is that it can be used to stuff a turkey for the meat eaters in the family, and it can also be cooked separately to accommodate vegan diets.
This dish is simple, elegant and very tasty. It's a great way of getting omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. Roasted salmon is topped with caramelised leeks and carrots. Serve for dinner with rice, potatoes or pasta.
Because it's Christmas, I thought, I would share with you a traditional Romanian Christmas dinner. Serve with mamaliga (polenta).
