Savory sage with a hint of sweet apples cooked in Melt® Organic makes this gluten- and grain-free holiday stuffing a delicious and welcome alternative to bread-based stuffings. When the holidays arrive, some of us worry about the wheat-heavy extravaganza and its effects on our digestive systems (me) or on our waistlines (my husband). This recipe is low-carb, GAPS-friendly, Paleo and Primal diet friendly and beats Stove Top any day. Yum!
Note: This recipe serves a small family of 2-3. Double or triple the recipe as needed.
3½ cups onion, diced (1+ large onion)
2½ cups celery, diced (~4-5 celery ribs)
¾ cups apple, cored and diced (~½ apple)
¼ cup dates
2 cups almond flour/meal
2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons thyme
¼ teaspoon marjoram
¼ teaspoon rosemary
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Melt Organic
3 eggs, whisked
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add 2 tablespoons Melt Organic to an iron skillet and warm over medium-low heat (I like to use a cast iron skillet so the entire recipe only uses one dish from start to presentation).
Add diced onion, celery, apple and herbs and sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add almond flour and dates to the skillet and mix.
Add the lightly beaten eggs to the skillet and mix well.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you are not using a cast iron skillet, then transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish and place in the oven.
