    Meatless Monday: Gluten-Free & Vegan Wild Rice Stuffing

    It’s called “turkey day,” but most families include a few members that don’t eat meat; others avoid gluten, and poor vegans really suffer on Thanksgiving thanks to butter-laden side dishes. Let’s throw these family members a bone (or carrot stick) with a hearty and flavorful recipe for Gluten-Free & Vegan Wild Rice Stuffing.

    Ingredients
    3¼ cups water, divided
    1¼ cups low fat, low-sodium vegetable broth
    2 cups uncooked wild rice blend
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
    2 cups finely diced onions
    2 cups finely diced celery
    2 tablespoons Bell’s Seasoning (or similar salt-free poultry seasoning)
    1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
    1 cup diced apples
    ¾ cup dried cherries, roughly chopped
    ¾ cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
    ½ cup currants
    ½ cup minced parsley, loosely packed
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    ½ teaspoon hot red pepper flakes

    Directions
    Combine the water, low-sodium vegetable broth, rice, salt, and 2 teaspoons olive oil in a medium sauce pot and set it over medium-high heat until it reaches a boil. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to the lowest setting; steam for 25 to 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the rice to sit for another 10 minutes before removing the cover. Fluff with a fork into a large bowl.

    Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large saute pan, set over medium heat. Add the finely diced onions and celery; sweat for 5 minutes then season with Bell’s seasoning. Add all remaining ingredients and stir together over medium heat for 1 minute. Fold this mixture into the fluffed rice and serve warm.
