Single Serve Mushroom Q-Cup Stuffing

We don’t know about you, but our favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing (and the leftovers, of course!). But, creating a homemade stuffing each week during meal prep can be a little time-consuming. So to satisfy our craving (all year long) we can up with this easy, vegetarian twist that is ready in less than two minutes (both prepping and cooking!). 

This single-serve, quinoa based stuffing is made with the traditional stuffing herbs, plus some dried cranberries for a bit of sweetness. But, the real star here is the base ingredient, the Savory Garlic and Mushroom Q-Cups. You have seen us share recipes using the Original Q-Cups here, but this time we used the pre-seasoned one to make this ‘stuffing’ recipe even easier to create! 

The Q-Cups are ready in 60 seconds. We are not kidding! Quinoa in one minute? It’s like a meal preppers dream come true! But, take it to the next level and create stuffing, plus serve it up with all of the traditional Thanksgiving sides and you have yourself a real winning meal prep! 

This may be a traditional Thanksgiving meal prep combo, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be November to enjoy it! The single-serve quinoa stuffing and all of the sides are a combination that can be enjoyed all year long. Thanksgiving in the summer may seem odd to some (not us), but this recipe is just as nice served chilled! The best part of the stuffing is eating it the next day when it’s straight from the fridge, right? 😉

The ingredient to make the Q-cup based quinoa stuffing couldn’t be any easier. In part, that is due to the Q-cups already having such a nice savory/umami flavor to them.
