Cauliflower Stuffing – Gluten Free!

1.jpg

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!!!
