This satisfying recipe is not your mama’s usual bread stuffing. This cauliflower stuffing checks the boxes for so many dietary and nutritional needs—free of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and nuts. Plus, it’s low-carb, paleo, keto and vegan. Surprise! Paleo and keto can easily be meat-free too. Roasted cauliflower is the stand-in for bread with herbs and spices delivering holiday flavors.
This stuffing has everything—sweetness from the plantains, spicy-saltiness from chorizo and plenty of vegetables to balance and enhance the flavors.
Corn puddings are as regional and varied as the people who enjoy them. The common denominator (corn) can be a problem food for some; if so, grated butternut squash makes a tasty alternative.
The nutty flavor of wild rice harmonizes perfectly with earthy mushrooms and sweet-tart cranberries and pears. Vegetables round out this bread-free stuffing and create a delicious vegan dish that can be baked in a prebaked acorn squash or small pumpkin for individual servings.
Homemade kombucha is made from sweetened tea (pure green tea or black tea) that’s been fermented with a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), also known as a “mother” because of its ability to reproduce. The result is a tangy, probiotic-rich beverage that’s good for you and your digestion. It can be flavored with ginger, hibiscus, rose hips, lavender, fruit juice or any spices you love.
