This grain-free stuffing is so delicious that even those who think they have to have a bread stuffing enjoy it. This recipe is good for gluten-free eaters and for the paleo diet too.
Also, a grain is not best with a protein meal as they grains and proteins conflict with each other in the digestive system. Since learning about food combining I always keep them separate.
Grain-Free Stuffing Recipe
- 1/2 cup avocado oil – this is the best oil for sauteing
- 4 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1 leek, chopped finely
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 – 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 Tbsp sage
- 1 tsp Spike Seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a pan sauté the mushrooms, leek, and celery for about 5 minutes, until the mushrooms soften a bit.
- In a pot add a cup of water and bring to a boil, add the cauliflower and steam it until it is a little soft, remove it from the pot and let cool. When it is cool, chop off the top of the cauliflower into small bits and put into a mixing bowl.
- Mix in the sautéed mixture with the garlic, thyme, sage, and Spike.
- Put the mixture into a loaf baking pan (approximately 9 X 5 inches).
- Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Raise the heat to 375 degrees and bake another 35-45 minutes.
You can prepare this stuffing a day ahead as I did and then bake it on the day of the meal. Also, you can bake it for 1 hour and then cover and finish baking it before serving.
