Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Gluten Free Stuffing. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
You will need gluten free bread for this recipe which we will toast before baking. I love AWG Bakery for gluten free bread, which is what I used for this recipe.
Every stuffing recipe needs celery and white onion.
The secret ingredient that I love adding into my stuffing is green apples, it adds a nice crunch and a sweet and savory flavor.
Lots of fresh herbs creates a lovely flavor and an amazing smell. I like to add in fresh rosemary, thyme and sage.
Grass-fed butter is preferred, but you can also use regular butter or a dairy free option to keep this vegan.
Instead of using chicken broth, I use a broth concentrate from Zoup, but you can also use Chicken bouillon too.
How To Make
ONE: start by cutting the gluten free bread into cubes and toasting in the oven until they resemble the texture of croutons.
TWO: In the meantime, melt the butter on the skillet and add in the diced onions and celery. Cook until everything is translucent and soft. Then mix in water and the broth concentrate and then add in the fresh herbs last and remove from heat.
THREE: Remove the bread from the oven and add it to a 9×13 inch baking pan. Turn the oven temperature up to 350℉. Pour in the veggie mixture on the stovetop and mix until fully combined. Then, mix in the apples. If your bread mixture is too dry, add in more water with the broth concentrate until you’ve reached desired texture.
FOUR: Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake an additional 10-15.
Tips And Tricks
Not all gluten free bread is created equal, so if you are using a different brand you may need to adjust the liquid. Just add in little at a time until you’ve reached desired consistency.
If you are not using a broth concentrate, you can instead use chicken broth but again, you may need to adjust the seasonings and add in salt, garlic powder, or onion powder. Just taste as you go along.
If you want your stuffing to be more gooey, then you may add in two beaten eggs. This will help to mend all the ingredients together creating a more bread pudding like texture.
