Gluten Free Rice & Apple Stuffing

Gluten Free Rice & Apple Stuffing

I love this recipe for the times you want to offer a gluten-free option stuffing or when you want something that feels just a little bit more elevated than traditional bread stuffing. I realize it may push some traditionalists over the edge, but it’s so good, you may just convert them to love this stuffing that has no bread.


What you need

1 1/2 c long-grain or brown rice, uncooked

2 c natural apple juice

1 1/2 c filtered water

2 tsp healthy oil of choice (avocado or olive oil work great)

1 medium apple, diced, skin on (optional)

1 small cooking onion or 1 large shallot

4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

1 medium carrot, finely chopped

1 c celery, finely chopped

1/3 c oat bran

1/2 c dried cranberries

1/2 c slivered almonds

1 tsp sage and/or poultry seasoning

1/2 tsp thyme

salt & pepper to taste


What you do

  • Cook rice according to package instructions, using combination of apple juice and water for cooking liquid
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat, add all chopped fruits and vegetables until cooked and crisp, not soggy
  • Add cooked rice, oat bran, cranberries, almonds and seasonings. Toss all ingredients together, well
  • Use as stuffing for chicken or turkey
