Helpful hints

  • Quinoa is higher in potassium and phosphorus compared to other whole grains, but is a good source of protein and fiber. In general, only half of the phosphorus in whole grains is absorbed during digestion. By limiting the portion you may still enjoy quinoa in your kidney diet. Check with your dietitian.
  • Each stalk of celery yields about 1 cup after trimmed and diced.
  • This recipe works well as a stuffing.

What could I substitute for the onion? Have a family member that is allergic to onions and hot peppers.

I made this tonight. Three times during the meal my husband stopped to say, This is good! I will be making it again. I followed the recipe as written.
