Grain-Free Alternative to Stuffing for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is almost here and those of you (like me!) that are eating a grain-free diet, Thanksgiving could prove to be a little challenging. But don’t worry, I have an alternative to stuffing that you will LOVE!

Cauliflower “Rice” – Alternative to Stuffing

Ingredients

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Red Pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup Zucchini, shredded
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • Seasonings of your choice

Directions

  1. Shred one head of cauliflower and set in a bowl to the side.
  2. Shred 1/4 to 1/2 cup zucchini and put in the bowl with the shredded cauliflower.
  3. Chop 1/2 cup of red pepper and 1/2 cup of yellow onion.
  4. Place olive oil in a frying pan (I use one that has sides) and saute the red pepper and onion for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the cauliflower, zucchini and your choice of seasonings to the pain and thoroughly mix until the cauliflower browns lightly.

Normally I make this dish very spicy, but today I wanted it to slightly resemble stuffing so I used Mrs. Dash chicken seasoning, thyme, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes (I told you, I like this dish spicy). It turned out absolutely delicious. So much so, I am thinking about taking it with me to Thanksgiving tomorrow to have in place of stuffing so I can stick to my diet!! Or at least stick to it enough that I don’t feel too guilty when I eat a sugar cookie!

What is your favorite grain-free dish?
