Wild Rice and Quinoa with Apple Cranberry and Greens is an excellent gluten free alternative to stuffing. This healthy side dish is packed with flavor and the freshest ingredients!
Thanksgiving meal prep is well underway in my house. With only a few days left until turkey day (seriously, how is it already the end of November?!), I’m prepping homemade cranberry sauce, a simple brined turkey and healthier side dish options. What’s on your Thanksgiving Day menu? Wild Rice and Quinoa with Apple Cranberry and Greens is a healthier gluten-free option for your holiday menu. The rice and quinoa dish is packed with hearty ingredients such as apples, celery, cranberries, kale, spinach and more. Substitute traditional stuffing for this wild rice and quinoa stuffing without sacrificing flavor.
For this recipe, I used organicgirl SUPER SPINACH blend because it combines baby spinach, baby bok choy and sweet baby kale. All of the ingredients are mixed together and then baked to create a side dish that is packed with fresh seasonal flavor. Best of all, the recipe calls for an entire 5 ounce package of greens. Sneak plenty of nutrient-packed ingredients into your Thanksgiving Day menu and then enjoy this side dish for dinner all season long. Wild rice and quinoa with apple, cranberry and greens also tastes great stuffed inside of your favorite squash. I stuff it into acorn squash, top with cheese and then bake in the oven. The stuffed squash creates an entire meal that is filling, healthy and flavorful.
