Paleo Classic Stuffing

Paleo Classic Stuffing

The holiday season tends to be a challenge for those of us with dietary restrictions because so many of the celebratory foods tend to use flour items for example. Growing up as an immigrant kid in the U.S., I never had a classically American stuffing with turkey, but rather had my mother’s Azorean stuffing which was technically a dressing because she did not like to put it in the bird. And so I share with you a paleo version of classic stuffing that is a technically a dressing.

I have purposefully left out amounts for most of the herbs and spices because I feel that these can and should be personalized according to preferences and the overall feel or theme of the meal the cook desires. I hope you enjoy this side dish and please do leave a comment letting me know what are you favorite combinations.
