I know I’m not the only one that loves stuffing on Thanksgiving day! Unfortunately, since I gave up gluten, it’s challenging to find a good recipe for it, since one of the main ingredients is bread! Kinda like the recipe that this pin links to!
Frick, that looks delicious! But, alas, it is full of gluten. 😦 I started thinking about the fact that there are so many ‘bread’ recipes that can be made using cauliflower instead of flour, such as cauliflower crust pizza, cauliflower bread sticks, cauliflower grilled cheese, etc. The list goes on and on, so I thought maybe I could come up with some sort of stuffing using cauliflower instead of bread, and guess what – it’s AWESOME! Totally tastes like delicious stuffing and not only is it gluten free, but it’s also REALLY good for you! Another great thing is that it’s easy to make, so let’s get to the recipe already!!!
HEALTHY GLUTEN FREE CAULIFLOWER STUFFING
- 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 red onion finely chopped
- 2 large carrots, peeled and finely chopped
- 2 large celery stalks, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 large leek, finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 small head of cauliflower, chopped into tiny pieces
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped rosemary
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. fresh chopped sage
- 1/2 cup vegetable broth, chicken broth, or water
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
1.) Prepare all of your vegetables by finely chopping everything…the smaller the better. heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and leek. Cook for 7-10 minutes until vegetables begin to sweat.
2.) Add the cauliflower, and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
3.) Add the parsley, rosemary, sage, and broth (or water). Cover and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until the broth is completely absorbed, and the vegetables are completely tender.
4.) Transfer to a plate, and season with sea salt and pepper, to taste.
Nom, nom, nom! Enjoy! 🙂
