Stuffing without bread, rice or sausage?

I would like to make some sort of veggie or fruit stuffing with this year's turkey, but cannot use gluten, rice or sausage. Any suggestions?

  1. I think the gourmet once had a recipe for a dried fruit and nut-only stuffing. It sounded pretty good, and I heard Ruth Reichl raving about it on the radio. I can't find the recipe on epicurious, but I don't see why you couldn't throw something together yourself based on what fruit and nuts you like.

    1. you can make many recipes using gluten free bread- will that work? raisin bread is a good one for added fruit flavor

      here's a good one...

      1. Are you looking for a stuffing to stuff the bird with, or a stuffing to serve as a side dish that is cooked in a casserole type pan (also called dressing)?

          Definately a side dish, but stuffing the bird would be an added bonus. Thanks!

            For the bread, wse a cornbread recipe that does not involve wheat flour. Corn is gluten free, and hyper traditional.

              Would love your gluten free cornbread recipe! Please post.

                Candy gave a classic southern one below.

        2. White cauliflower, broken into florets and then lightly sauted in olive oil or butter before simmering in broth becomes lightly fragrant and has a nice, satisfying texture that works well in place of bread or potato. Goes well with thyme and a touch of white pepper. You could make that your base and perhaps add some crushed sage and fried chopped onion and celery to give it that stuffing feeling.

          1. You could use any of the following, I think:

            millet, corn or quinoa
