Thanksgiving Stuffing Paleo Style

I don’t know about you, but stuffing is by far my favourite Thanksgiving dish (it even tops turkey!).

Traditionally, my family prepares their stuffing with some ingredients that I can’t eat (gluten mainly), so since depriving myself on Thanksgiving is NOT an option, I had to create a stuffing recipe that not only tasted bomb to me, but my family as well…and I think I created a winner here.

Check out this grain-free, whole food inspired stuffing recipe and give it a try this Thanksgiving.
