Our Paleo stuffing is gluten-free, vegetarian, Paleo friendly, dairy-free and has no sugar added. With that being said we didn’t sacrifice any of the flavor with this dish. It will be a new holiday favorite. Try our Paleo Stuffing recipe and in the comments below let us know how much you loved it.

Paleo Stuffing

What You’ll Need:
6 cups toasted gluten-free bread cubes*
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 red apple – chopped (leave peel on)
2 teaspoons dried sage
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste

Optional: Handful of chopped walnuts
2 cups cooked Vegetarian or Beef Chorizo

What You’ll Do:
Preheat the oven to 325°F.

In a large skillet over medium heat melt two tablespoons of coconut oil. Add the onion, celery, spices and garlic. Cook until the veggies are tender. Transfer the spiced veggie mixture to a large bowl with the bread cubes. Mix in the optional chorizo with its juices. Add in the chopped apples and cranberries. Pour in the broth and lightly beaten eggs. Mix well. Transfer the stuffing mixture to a lightly oiled 8×10” baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for approximately 40 minutes. Remove the tin foil and add the optional walnuts. Continue to bake uncovered for another 10 minutes or until the stuffing is golden brown. Enjoy!

*Paleo Stuffing Option: My local Whole Foods carries Paleo bread cubes made with almond flour around the holidays, check your local store for availability. To make your own Paleo stuffing cubes use the recipe below. Make the recipe a couple days in advance so that the Paleo Stuffing can dry to the consistency of regular bread cubes. Chopping the Paleo stuffing mix into cubes after it is cool allows them to become crusty quickly. Store covered until ready to use.
