Quinoa is the perfect gluten-free grain.  Full of protein and fiber, this delicious ancient grain serves as the ideal base for winter stuffings and salads.  Here is a recipe that was modified from the More Than Gourmet website.  More Than Gourmet has a line of amazing demi-glaces that can be used to make stocks and sauces.  Thier entire line is gluten-free,except for the wine sauces and the veal demi-glaces.

Quinoa with Cranberries and Toasted Pecans

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 c. 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

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.
