I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is the stuffing. Unfortunately it seems like Thanksgiving is the only day of the year I actually get to eat stuffing!
Why is it that we reserve only one day out of the year for the scrumptious side dish? It’s not like turkey or mashed potatoes only get one day out of the year!
Well, I’m about to change all of that! As I began to plan my Gluten Free Easter dinner menu I started thinking about my favorite dishes from other holidays and stuffing was the first to come to mind.
Did you know that in a recent survey of Americans who live a gluten free lifestyle, 34% reported experiencing food fear of missing out (FOMO) during holidays?*
Well no need to miss out on this delicious recipe! With the help of my partner, All But Gluten, I was able to make this spring stuffing recipe gluten free!
I combined their hearty Whole Grain bread, filled with vitamins and nutrients, with delicious spring vegetables like spinach and asparagus for a healthier, springy version of the classic Thanksgiving dish!
The flax seeds and sunflower seeds in the whole grain bread add that extra burst of flavor to an already flavor-packed dish!
- 1 loaf All But Gluten Whole Grain Bread (cubed)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 cup baby bella mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 cup asparagus (chopped)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 tbsp fresh italian parsley (chopped)
- 1 tbsp green onions (chopped)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups vegetable (or chicken) broth
Lay the bread out in a baking dish the night before to dry out.
When you’re ready to make the dish, preheat the oven to 400°.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onion, sauté 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, sauté 1-2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, asparagus and spinach.
Sauté 4-5 minutes. Add the fresh and dried herbs.
Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl with the cubed bread.
Add the eggs and chicken broth.
Toss lightly to combine, then place in an oven safe baking dish.
Cover and cook 45-60 minutes. (If your baking dish doesn’t have a cover, you can simply cover it with foil.)
Fresh, light, filled with flavor and perfect for Easter dinner!
