Cauliflower Herbaceous “Stuffing”

I have never been the biggest fan of stuffing. A little bit goes a long way with the traditional stuff (pun intended 😉 I have been seeing so many fun cauliflower substitutes all over the internet this year, so I was inspired to take a stab at my own recipe because I love cauliflower. I am not sure I would consider this recipe a stuffing – more like a great veggie side with equal the flavor of traditional stuffing. I added lots of extra herbs to this recipe to give it color and more depth to its flavor.


  • 1 container of Trader Joes Stuffing mix

    • Don’t have a trader joes? Or want to make it yourself?

    • 1 c of diced celery

    • 1 c diced white onions

    • 1/4 c finely chopped sage leaves

    • 2 tbs rosemary

    • 1/3 C fresh parsley (plus some extra for garnish)

    • 2 tsp fresh thyme

    • salt & pepper to taste

  • 1 chopped head of cauliflower into pieces steamed

  • 2 tbs butter (vegan butter or avocado oil works as well)

  • 1/4 c dried cranberries

  • 1/4 c chopped pecans


  • add steamed cauliflower to a large pot with the stuffing mix (or the mix you created yourself)

  • on low to medium heat add butter and sauté the above mixture be sure to stir frequently – about 10 to 15 minutes to soften the onions and celery

  • add cranberries and pecans and sauté for another minute or so

  • add to a serving dish and top with extra fresh herbs

  • Enjoy!
