Healthy Stuffing Alternatives Recipe

As much as I love stuffing (and I mean love stuffing), I don’t love all the gluten, grain + carbs. It doesn’t leave me feeling that great after eating it.

Instead, use cauliflower! It works so great to make cauliflower rice and cauliflower risotto, why not use it for stuffing too!

It absorbs all the flavors of the stuffing, and acts just like bread.

Is Stuffing Keto Friendly and Whole30?

This whole30 + keto cauliflower stuffing is compliant and clean diet friendly as it gets!

Instead of bread, I use finely chopped cauliflower. I then add in all the other vegetables you love in stuffing like celery, carrots, onion, leeks, mushrooms. Lots of herbs like fresh rosemary, fresh thyme + dried sage make the cauliflower + vegetables taste just like stuffing. Add in pecans for some crunch + chicken stock for flavor and you’ve got the perfect clean diet healthy stuffing recipe!

No Bread Stuffing Cooking Method

The best part of this stuffing (besides the taste), is that you roast it all in the oven on a sheet pan! So simple. The vegetables caramelize and get golden brown edges that gives this whole30 + keto cauliflower stuffing the most intense, deep flavor.
