Gluten-free Quinoa and Apple Stuffing

An alternative stuffing recipe from The Cook & Him that's gluten-free, vegan and absolutely delicious to boot.

Gluten-free Quinoa and Apple Stuffing

Here's another great seasonal recipe from food blog The Cook & Him, where Sam and Phil (and Meg the dog) are doing great things with our British pulses and grains.

This really is a superb stuffing using only vegan and gluten-free ingredients, including our quinoa flour. It makes a great accompaniment to a roast or a fabulous meal in itself.

Cooking tip: If you're not used to using cup measurements they can be easily converted for any measuring jug as 1 cup = 225ml. The corresponding weights for dry ingredients vary so it's best to measure but you can you an online conversion tool.
