  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 4 oz pancetta, diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly in a fine-mesh sieve and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the broth to a boil over high heat. Add the quinoa and stir to combine. Cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
  4. While the quinoa is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook until crispy, stirring occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pancetta to a large bowl.
  5. In the same skillet, add the onion, celery, garlic, thyme, and sage. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the vegetables are soft and fragrant, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the cooked quinoa to the bowl with the pancetta. Add the cooked vegetables and stir to combine.
  7. Transfer the stuffing to a 9×13 inch baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
