Healthy Holiday Stuffings

Of all the offerings typically found on the Thanksgiving table, we must admit that stuffing might be our favorite. Choose from one of our healthy stuffing recipes to satisfy those savory-sweet (or spicy!) Turkey Day cravings, while using less butter and more tasty vegetables and grains than you’ll find in traditional recipes. Enjoy!

 

Wild Rice Stuffing

 

Wild rice has a delicious nutty flavor and deep brown color, beautifully contrasting with the colorful cranberries, hazelnuts and parsley in this recipe. Like brown rice, wild rice is rich in vitamins and minerals, but it is lower on the glycemic index and higher in protein.

Cornbread Stuffing

 

This veggie stuffing is good to cook inside our out of the turkey. The cubanelle peppers used in this recipe have a sweet and mild flavor, but are also very rich, adding a distinct southwest veggie flavor to this dish. For a spicier stuffing, make it with jalapeño cornbread instead!

Sausage & Chestnut Stuffing

 

This stuffing uses a hot chicken sausage instead of a fatty pork version, making it a healthy choice. The decadent flavors of roasted chestnuts and superfood kale in this dish make it a huge success. The flavor is simply wonderful.
