Ingredients
  • 3 cups of cornbread, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 links sweet Italian chicken or turkey sausage, casing removed and crumbled
  • 1 cup dried cherries, unsweetened
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leafed parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
Method
Toast cornbread cubes in the oven or toaster oven at 350° for 10 minutes. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. Remove cornbread from oven and set aside; leave oven on. Heat the oil in a large saute pan for 1 minute over medium heat, then add the onion and sage and saute for 2 minutes. Add the celery and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer the toasted cornbread and quinoa to a large bowl and add the sausage mixture to it. Stir and add the salt, pepper, broth and wine. Transfer to the reserved baking dish and bake at 350° for 50 minutes, until golden brown on top. Serve warm. Serves 12
