Classic Grain-Free Stuffing with Savoury Herbs

Classic Grain-Free Stuffing with Savoury Herbs

“I’m only eating mom’s stuffing.” – my 24-year-old brother every holiday.

My younger brother does not like change, and he definitely does not like when I experiment with his favourite family recipes. Thankfully, my grain-free stuffing recipe passed his test.

My mom would be cooking for what felt like days in the kitchen leading up to holidays. But the thing we always looked forward to the most was the aroma of the stuffing baking in the oven. It was always the dish there was never enough of and arguments ensued over who got the first helping. I have three brothers…this happened a lot.

Breaking Up With Gluten

In my early 20s, I discovered I had a severe intolerance to gluten (and later celiac disease). Gluten was the culprit behind my lifelong weekly migraines, adult onset acne, and digestive issues. Removing it from my diet was very difficult. But I think I felt it the most at family holidays – especially Thanksgiving because it’s my favourite!

I was devastated not to be filling up my plate with my favourite holiday food – stuffing. It took me a few years of trial and error, but I was finally able to create a delicious grain-free version of my mom’s recipe (that even my brother didn’t hate 😉 ). The secret is in the herb combination. As my mom always says…

“You should be able to really smell the herbs while you’re stirring it.”

And if you’re looking for a grain-free dessert to go along with your holiday meal, try my Easy Paleo Pumpkin Pie!

Sweet & Savoury

The combination of medjool dates, apples, herbs, and sea salt make for a seriously delicious combination. If you don’t have medjool dates, try swapping them out for dried cranberries. Just make sure they are sugar-free, which means they’ve usually been sweetened with apple juice.

You will LOVE how deliciously moist and flavourful this recipe is. But, I encourage you to make this stuffing recipe your own by adding in cooked pieces turkey sausage, crumbled pecans, or any other ingredient that reminds you of your family holidays.

Don’t forget to snap a pic of your creation and tag me in it on Instagram (@katiestewartwellness). I get so excited to see your versions of my recipe!

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
