Healthy Stuffing Recipe

Serves: 8

A healthy Butternut, Brussels Sprout Stuffing recipe with apples that is gluten-free, dairy free and totally vegan 🙂


  • 10 slices bread of choice (we used gluten-free bread but sourdough or whole grain would work too)
  • 1 large butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, sliced in half
  • 1 large apple, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable broth
  • 2-3 tbs olive or avocado oil
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh sage, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • optional: ⅓ cup dried cranberries & walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place butternut squash, brussels and apple in an 9 x 11 baking pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, saute onion and celery in olive oil over medium heat until soft and translucent. Then set aside.
  4. Toast bread and cut into squares. Once the squash mixture is done in the oven, remove and add in bread squares, vegetable broth, onion, celery, rosemary, thyme, sage, salt and pepper.
  5. Stir well and return to oven for an additional 20-25 minutes.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy!
