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.

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)
