Paleo Lemon-Thyme Stuffing

holidays veggies/side dishes Nov 12, 2022

It’s not Thanksgiving without stuffing! 

However, stuffing is one of those side dishes that are laden with calories, salt, and fat. Not to mention, it’s so easy to eat more than you intended. So, what’s a girl to do?

The good news is that it’s really easy to lighten stuffing up by using a flavorful broth instead of butter. Also, use plenty of fresh or dried herbs and other ingredients, such as fresh or dried fruit. We think stuffing tastes better with all these good-for-you ingredients, anyways.

A quick tip: bread stuffing should always be cooked until it reaches 165F on a digital thermometer. To prevent food-borne illness, it’s best to cook the stuffing separately from the turkey.

Try out our Paleo Lemon Thyme Stuffing this year for something different. We basically took a traditional bread stuffing but left out the store-bought bread and instead used our super nutritious and delicious Lemon Thyme Paleo Bread. It will absolutely be the best bread stuffing you’ve ever had!

It’s tangy and earthy and oh so comforting. While we include the word “Thanksgiving” in this stuffing’s name, of course, you can make it any time of the year. We definitely do.

**NOTE: Prepare for this recipe two days in advance. You need to let the lemon thyme paleo bread sit out for two days to dry.
