Stuffing is total comfort food at the holiday table!
It’s usually a family favorite. When you ask people what their favorite side dish is at Thanksgiving, the answer is almost always stuffing. Or maybe your family calls it dressing? Either way, it’s aways a crowd pleaser.
This Gluten Free Fruity Riced Cauliflower Stuffing is delicious, healthier and packed with so much goodness.
It’s packed with toasted riced cauliflower, caramelized onions, crunchy bites of celery, lots of fresh herbs like Italian parsley and sage, and a bunch fresh and dried fruits.
Apples, pears, cranberries, dried apricots and organic raisins are some of the stars!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, now is time to start planning your holiday menu.
Did you know that Sprouts Farmers Market has an awesome Deals of the Month flyer out right now?
It’s packed with recipes (this stuffing is featured), ideas for holiday menu planning as well as great deals they have going on right now.
Sprouts Farmers Market carries some of my favorite ingredients used in this stuffing, like frozen organic riced cauliflower, organic raisins (with no added oils or sugar), organic apricot preserves and gluten free bread!
If you haven’t tried riced cauliflower before, it’s a great alternative to rice if you can’t have grains. It’s also just simply delicious! My family uses it almost weekly to add to soups and stir frys.
Cauliflower is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. It’s also a good source of choline, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, phosphorus and biotin.
Riced cauliflower is a lovely side dish for any meal and it’s also SO good packed in stuffing.
Organic produce is overflowing in this buttery gluten free fruity riced cauliflower stuffing.
Sprouts Farmers Market has a great selection of organic produce, frozen organic produce and organic dried fruit. I love that their raisins are not only organic, but they don’t have anything added – no unhealthy oils or sugar, just pure raisins.
Do you have Sprouts Farmers Markets where you live? Their produce department is great and always seems to be adding more and more organic options with great prices.

- 2 gluten free baguettes, cut or torn into 1” cubes
- 12 oz frozen Sprouts Brand organic riced cauliflower
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 4 fresh garlic cloves, finely minced or grated
- 5 celery stalks with leaves, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh sage leaves
- 1 tbsp minced fresh thyme leaves
- 2 tsp minced fresh Italian parsley
- 2 apples or pears, cored, peeled and diced
- ½ cup fresh cranberries or dried cranberries
- ½ cup Sprouts brand organic raisins
- ½ cup chopped dried apricots
- 2 tbsp Sprouts Brand organic apricot preserves
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ cup + 2 tbsp organic butter or ghee, melted – divided
- 1 ¾ cup organic chicken broth
- If the gluten bread needs to be baked first, bake according to the package instructions.
- Preheat the oven to 375° Cut or tear bread into 1” pieces and spread out on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes, just until dried out like a crouton. Set aside and let cool.
- While the bread is drying out in the oven, add 2 tablespoons healthy fat of choice to a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the riced cauliflower and cook for about 3 minutes stirring constantly. Add the onion, garlic and ½ teaspoon of sea salt, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes, until the onions and cauliflower start to become slightly golden brown around the edges. Add the celery, sage, thyme and parsley, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
- In a very large mixing bowl, add bread pieces, vegetable mixture, fresh fruit and dried fruit, apricot preserves, ½ teaspoon sea salt, ½ cup melted butter or ghee and broth. Gently stir to combine. Pour stuffing mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and bake in a 375° F preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the bread has become light golden brown on the top and the stuffing is heated through. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
- Store stuffing in an air-tight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Reheat the stuffing in the oven on a low/warming temperature just until heated through.
- If you prefer to change up the fruit, any of the dried fruit can easily be substituted with other dried fruits like figs, cherries, etc.
