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.

Yes! But if you are not using a broth concentrate, and instead are using chicken broth you may need to adjust the seasonings and add in salt, garlic powder, or onion powder. Just taste as you go along.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of gluten free bread, cut into 1 inch cubes (about 6 cups)
  • 6 tbsp grass-fed butter (can sub ghee or vegan butter)
  • 2-3 cups water
  • 1.5 tbsp chicken broth concentrate I used zoup but chicken bouillon works too! 
  • 1 medium white or sweet onion, diced
  • 6 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary 
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme 
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage 
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 granny smith apple, diced 

SCALE:

1X

YIELDS:

12 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450℉.
  2. Cut bread into ~1 inch cubes, then spread them out on a large baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the bread is dry and crunchy like a crouton.
  3. In a large pan or pot on the stove, melt the butter. Once melted, add the diced onion and diced celery. Cook until everything is translucent and soft.
  4. Once the onion and celery mixture is soft, add in 2 cups of water and broth concentrate (or just chicken broth) add in the fresh herbs, garlic powder and onion powder and mix once more 
  5. Remove the bread from the oven and space it out into a 9×13 inch baking pan. Turn the oven temperature up to 350℉.
  6. A little at a time, pour the broth and veggie mixture over the bread and use your hands or a spatula to gently combine it without breaking up the bread. Mix in the diced apples last.
  7. Not all gluten free bread is created equal, so you may need to add in more water and broth concentrate, or just broth. Add in as much or as little until you have your desired stuffing texture.
  8. Once the stuffing has reached your desired consistency, cover the pan with foil and bake it for 30 minutes.
  9. After the 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake the stuffing for an additional 15 minutes, checking on it to ensure the bread stays golden and does not burn.

Notes

  • 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.
  • I found my Zoup at Sprouts, but Chicken Bouillon works too.
  • The concentrates are naturally salty, which is why there is no added salt in this recipe. If using different product you may need to adjust. Just taste your mixture before baking and adjust as needed.
