Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220oC/Fan 200oC.
  2. Add the quinoa and water to a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce to a low heat and cover, leaving to simmer for 15–20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat when cooked.
  3. While the quinoa cooks, warm the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, celery and apple; and stir for about 3 minutes until the onions and celery start to soften. Then add the garlic, sage and black pepper; and stir for a further minute.
  4. Add the contents of the frying pan to the quinoa, and mix thoroughly. Then slowly add the stock.
  5. Finely coat an ovenproof dish with spray oil. Add the stuffing to the dish, and spread out evenly. Alternatively, you could roll the stuffing into small balls.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on top.
