No Thanksgiving meal is complete without the stuffing, but for many people who can't eat gluten, stuffing is a no-go. Traditional stuffing recipes use cornbread or stale bread. You can always use those favorite recipes and substitute gluten-free alternatives for the breads, or you can try something all new. These gluten-free Thanksgiving stuffing recipes can help you or your holiday guests enjoy stuffing without worrying about the gluten. We utilize several types of gluten-free grains, as well as rice for a few delicious twists on classic gluten-free Thanksgiving stuffing.
Chorizo and Roasted Poblano Wild Rice Stuffing
Hot cooked wild rice is incredibly nutty and fragrant, a perfect counter to smoky paprika, quick roasted poblano peppers, and spicy fresh chorizo. Look for ground, raw Mexican chorizo rather than Spanish chorizo (cured, cased sausage). The rice will absorb the drippings from the sausage as the two bake together in the casserole dish. If you can’t find Mexican chorizo, try hot Italian pork or turkey sausage. We treat the rice the same as a bread stuffing—binding it with a mixture of stock, eggs, and butter—for a richer, more cohesive stuffing that will brown beautifully in the pan.
