Gluten Free Stuffing
Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without a heaping helping of savory stuffing on your plate. But when we had some family members who needed to go gluten free, finding a stuffing alternative was a bit of a task. Nobody should have to skimp on Thanksgiving, no matter your dietary needs. So when I got this recipe from Chef Sam, the executive chef at Fitness Ridge. I was anxious to try it. To my very pleasant surprise, it was DELICIOUS. My kids loved it. No more feeling guilty about putting stuffing on your plate at Thanksgiving!

Suggestions for this Recipe
- There are several tasty GF bread options at your grocery store. I like using light, fluffy white gluten-free sandwich bread, cut into cubes.
- Using organic, low sodium chicken broth will keep calories low. However if you want a little more flavor in your dish, go ahead and use regular chicken broth. It’s still gluten free!
- Fresh herbs taste so delicious in this recipe! You can find them all in the produce section of the grocery store. However if you can’t track them down, dried herbs will work just as well.
- Don’t skimp on the orange and lemon zest! This little step gives this recipe a fresh, vibrant flavor that can’t be beat.
- Grapeseed oil enhances the flavors of the herbs so make sure to find this at the store. You could also use a dash of extra virgin olive oil if needed.
- Use leftovers for sandwiches, midnight snacks, whatever you like! Store it covered in the refrigerator; leftovers will be good for up to a week.
