The ultimate recipe round-up featuring all of the very best quinoa Thanksgiving recipes from across the internet – from salads, sides & even breakfast!
Do you have your Thanksgiving all planned out? Do you know exactly what you'll bring? Yeah, me either.
Oh and then there's that whole thing about trying to stay healthy during the holidays…yeah, that. It's hard, it sucks and it generally means you'll be missing out on the good stuff. Well I hear ya loud and clear! I've totally got you covered this year.
I searched high and low for all the very best quinoa Thanksgiving recipes I could find. And I made sure they're all healthy and suitable for this year's feast. We've got everything from salads, sides, appetizers and even the morning of breakfast. Everything is Thanksgiving appropriate and everything has quinoa in it.
Now, I'm not expecting your entire Thanksgiving table to be covered in quinoa dishes (because I know mine certainly won't be), but my hope is that you are able to bring at least one healthy, gluten-free, whole-grain dish to the celebration. Why? Because I think even if you can sneak just one healthy meal onto everyone's plate, it's a step in the right direction.
So whether you're looking for an alternative to stuffing, need some inspiration for salads or just want to have something quick and easy to serve Thanksgiving morning, there is something for everyone in today's list!
