Healthy Holiday Stuffing Recipe

Prep Time: 1 Hour 20 Mins   |   Cook Time: 40 Mins   |   Servings: 8

 

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf sprouted bread
  • 6 T Dr. Bronner’s Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 large sweet yellow onions, minced
  • 4 celery stalks, minced
  • 2 T (packed) minced fresh thyme
  • 2 1/3 c vegetable stock
  • 1/3 c dried goji berries
  • 2/3 c hemp seeds
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Tear bread into 1/2-inch to 1-inch pieces, and spread onto a baking sheet. Bake 1 hour, tossing once or twice midway through until bread is golden and toasted. Remove bread from the oven to cool. Turn heat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Warm coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions and celery. Cook until softened, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix in thyme and cook 1 minute longer.
  3. Transfer contents of the pan to a large mixing bowl. Pour in vegetable broth. Add salt and pepper. Combine.
  4. Add toasted bread, goji berries, and hemp seeds, and toss well. Transfer mixture to a 12″ x 9″ baking dish. Press down slightly, creating an even layer. If any goji berries are exposed, press down to submerge into the stuffing to avoid burning.
  5. Cover the dish tightly with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Then remove foil and bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes, or until the top of the stuffing has browned.
