A bowl of chopped walnuts and green apple slices
Prep Time:
45 minutes, plus overnight sit time for bread
Yield:
Serves 10

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of dairy-free, gluten-free bread, chopped into 1-inch cubes (about 9 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, plus extra for oiling casserole dish
  • 14 cup minced shallots
  • 3 celery ribs, cut into 1 12-inch dice
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cut into 12-inch dice
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 2 cup apple cider
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 12 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten*
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Set gluten-free bread cubes out overnight on a baking sheet, so they can dry out a bit.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Oil the bottom and sides of a large glass casserole dish with oil.
  3. Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add shallots and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add celery and sauté for 4 minutes. Add apples, walnuts, and apple cider and sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer mixture to oiled casserole dish. Add bread cubes, sage, thyme, lightly beaten eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. Gently combine until all the bread is moistened.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, until stuffing is browned and crispy on top.

Notes

*The eggs in this recipe help bind the ingredients together, while adding richness, moistness, and flavor to the stuffing.
