Quinoa stuffing

Trying to come up with some healthy alternatives for me for thanksgiving so I can actually eat with everyone

I prepared 1 cup of dry Quinoa in 1 cup of MSG free chicken broth and 1 cup of water – brought water to a boil, poured in dry Quinoa, covered it well and turned it down to a simmer for 15 mins –

In a large fry pan I fried 2 diced med onions and 2 cans of mushroom pieces in butter and a mix of Zesty Mrs Dash and garlic salt to taste, I added about 1/4 of a cup of broth to the fry pan while cooking then when they were about halfway done, 10 mins, I added 1 cup of walnut and cooked for another 10 mins.

I toasted 2 slices of whole wheat bread, I like the really nutty stuff, and diced it super fine then at the end of the 20 min saute I threw it in with the onions and stirred it in, (you can skip this part I just like to add a little thickness)

Finally I poured the cooked quinoa into the fry pan and stirred it up well and let sit for 5 to 10 mins before eating.

VERY YUM
