What would Thanksgiving be without stuffing? If you’re looking for an allergen-friendly recipe or just a delicious new take on this holiday staple, you’ve found it here! I’ve created a sweet stuffing that is perfect for kids and adults alike. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan so you can easily serve this to your entire Thanksgiving table without having to worry about food preferences. If nut-allergies are a problem, you can easily substitute in ground flax seeds for a similar crunch and nutty flavor.
The trick to this satisfyingly sweet stuffing is the dried cherries and honey along with a sprinkle of fresh basil leaves. If you have extra pine nuts you can toss them into my healthy Pine Nut Stuffed Mushroom recipe to serve as a tasty appetizer.
6 cups gluten-free bread, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup dried cherries
2 tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
¼ cup pine nuts, finely chopped
2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare a baking dish with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine gluten-free bread pieces, dried cherries, honey, salt, pepper, pine nuts, fresh thyme, vegetable broth and olive oil. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through and golden brown.
Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with fresh basil.
