Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without my mother’s cranberry chutney, but it involves so much chopping that it can become more of a project than I have time for. This healthy alternative couldn’t be more simple, which means that not only do I make it for the holiday, but it’s my go-to winter dressing for everything from pot pie to lentil loaf (that is if I can keep my kids from devouring it before I get it to the table)!
This grain free, gluten free stuffing will not leave you feeling "stuffed" after your Thanksgiving dinner, however, it is just as tasty as a traditional stuffing.

This easy to digest stuffing is packed with nutrients—and you won't even miss the bread!
