    Quinoa is the perfect gluten-free grain.  Full of protein and fiber, this delicious ancient grain serves as the ideal base for Thanksgiving stuffings and salads.  Here is a recipe that was modified from the "More Than Gourmet" website.

    Ingredients
    2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 large rib celery, finely chopped
    1½ cups uncooked quinoa, rinsed
    1½ oz. Glace de Volaille Gold + 2 cups hot water (or two cups chicken or turkey stock)
    ½ cup orange juice
    ½ cup dried cranberries
    ½ cup chopped pecans, toasted
    Grated zest of 1 orange 
    3 Tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
    salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Quinoa with Cranberries and Toasted Pecans (Gluten-Free)Preparation
    Heat the butter or oil in a medium casserole. Stir in the onion and celery and cook over medium heat until the onion is translucent and golden. Stir in the quinoa, pour in the diluted Glace de Volaille Gold and orange juice, bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low. Stir in the cranberries, cover and cook until all the liquid has evaporated, 12-15 minutes. Remove the cover and fluff with a fork. Stir in the pecans, orange zest, parsley, salt and pepper. Serve at once or keep warm over low heat, stirring occasionally.

    Sounds like a great recipe, but I looked up the Glace de Volaille Gold (since I've never heard of it) on the company's website and it was not listed among their gluten-free products.
