Cauliflower Rice Stuffing
$7.02 Recipe/$1.17 Serving
Cauliflower stuffing is the perfect side dish any time of year and would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving or holiday dinner. This cauliflower rice stuffing is made wtih veggies and packed with flavor. It's also vegan, grain free, Whole30, paleo and plant based!
Spray the skillet with avocado oil or olive oil spray. Add the chopped onion and celery and cook 3-5 minutes.
Once onions are softened, add spices and coconut aminos. Stir well and cook 1 more minute.
Add frozen cauliflower rice and vegetable broth to the veggies. Cook 10-12 minutes, ensuring you cook off most of the moisture.
Peel and chop the apple while the cauliflower rice cooked.
Move cauliflower rice to the side of the skillet and add chopped apples. Cook 3-4 minutes.
Stir apples into the cauliflower and add frozen spinach and dried cranberries. Cook 2-3 minutes.
Be sure to break up any clumps of cauliflower rice while it’s still in a sealed bag. The key to a quick cooking dish is to have the cauliflower rice easy to stir and cook. Clumps can be tough to break apart once the bag is opened. I like to lay the bag flat on the counter and press down firmly with the palm of my hand to break up any clumps I feel.
If you are short on time, add the diced apple along with the onion and celery. I like to wait to add the apple to help it retain some of it’s texture but if you are short on time, sauté it with the onion and celery.
Another time saving tip: you can chop the celery and onion in a small food processor in just seconds. This can be a really great time saver and will ensure the veggies are well chopped.
Make ahead tip: you can make this entire dish the night before and simply reheat it in a large casserole dish at 400F for 15 minutes.
Fridge: You can store leftover cauliflower stuffing in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge.
Freezer: I would not recommend freezing this cauliflower rice stuffing as it will get soggy when defrosting.
