Grain-Free Thanksgiving Stuffing! Easy, healthy, stuffing — full of flavor and perfect for your reflux-free holiday feast!
This recipe evolved from a personal quest to create a stuffing that would cater to a grain-free lifestyle without compromising on taste. As someone sensitive to onions and garlic, I wanted to design a dish that not only satisfied my dietary needs but also resonated with those dealing with reflux, stomach sensitivities, or anyone simply looking to embrace a grain-free approach.
So was born my grain-free Thanksgiving stuffing. This grain-free Thanksgiving stuffing is more than a dish; it’s a warm, comforting hug for your taste buds. Imagine the familiar, hearty goodness of traditional stuffing, but without the unwanted reflux!
Grain-Free Thanksgiving Stuffing Ingredients:
Cauliflower: This humble vegetable transforms into the perfect grain-free base, providing a texture reminiscent of traditional stuffing.
Mushrooms: Mushrooms, with their earthy richness, add a layer of savory goodness without the need for grains, making them a comforting choice for those with GERD.
Celery: Crisp and refreshing, celery adds the flavors you would be expecting in a stuffing.
Broth: Bone broth, chicken stock, or veggie stock, will all work just fine.
Sage, Parsley, and Thyme: These aromatic herbs not only elevate the flavors but add that Thanksgiving vibe we’re going for.
Himalayan Salt: A pinch of seasoning that enhances the dish without overwhelming, ensuring a perfect balance for those with sensitive stomachs.
Avocado Oil: A touch of healthy fat, bringing richness to the stuffing. Feel free to swap it out with olive oil or ghee based on your preferences.
Step by Step Instructions for Grain-Free Thanksgiving Stuffing:
First, rice the cauliflower by breaking it up into smaller pieces, then blending it for a few seconds until it has a rice-like consistency. Then set it aside.
Next, heat the oil in a pan on medium-high and add your finely chopped celery. Let that cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Now, add the riced cauliflower and salt and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Then, add half of the broth, your mushrooms, and salt, and let cook this mixture for 3-4 minutes more.
Add herbs and the remaining broth and let that cook away for another 3 minutes.
Finally, remove your grain-free stuffing from the heat and serve!
Tips and Storage:
This recipe serves around 4-5, so you may need to double the recipe depending on how many people you’re serving for your Thanksgiving Feast!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator, reheating gently to maintain the stuffing’s comforting texture.
