But all too often, these are loaded with carbs. What can you do if you’re eating low-carb, keto, paleo, or gluten-free around the holidays?</p> <p>Make cauliflower stuffing, that’s what! This delicious low-carb alternative is so full of flavor you’ll never notice there’s no bread involved. Better still, you can play with tastes and textures to create a scrumptious gourmet side that everyone will enjoy.</p> </section> <section id="section1"> <h2>What Is Cauliflower Stuffing Made Of?</h2> <p>Low-carb cauliflower stuffing relies on roasted cauliflower florets instead of bread croutons to provide heft and texture. From there, the sky’s the limit! For a traditional spin, adding sautéed <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/the-best-low-carb-vegetables-to-eat-on-keto/" rel="noreferrer">low-carb veggies</a> like celery and onion and classic seasonings like sage and thyme create a dressing to die for. But there are many variations you can try!</p> <ul> <li><strong>Sausage Stuffing:</strong> Remove ¾ pound of Italian sausage from its casing and crumble onto the baking tray with the cauliflower to roast together. Choose either sweet or hot depending on your preferences---they’ll both be delicious.</li> <li><strong>Cranberry Pecan:</strong> Add ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries when roasting the cauliflower. Toss the finished stuffing with ½ cup toasted pecans.</li> <li><strong>Lemon Pepper:</strong> Swap the thyme and sage for 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper (or ¾ teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning). Mix 1 teaspoon of lemon juice into the finished stuffing.</li> </ul> </section> <section id="section2"> <h2>Helpful Tips for Cooking Cauliflower Stuffing</h2> <p>To get the most delicious cauliflower stuffing possible, you want the crispiest cauliflower you can get. Here are a few helpful tips to try:</p> <ul> <li>You can use frozen, thawed cauliflower in place of fresh. If you do, drain it thoroughly and pat dry to help crisp in the oven.</li> <li>Spread the vegetables out as much as possible on the pan, possibly even splitting into two or more batches. This helps the cauliflower crisp up around the edges.</li> <li>Stir regularly to help the veggies roast evenly, moving the veggies around every 5 minutes or so.</li> <li>If the veggies don’t seem to be getting crispy from roasting in the oven, turn on your broiler and broil for 3-5 minutes to finish.</li> </ul> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe" id="section3"> <h2 itemprop="name">Cauliflower Stuffing</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 40 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 6</span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 6 cups)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ cup olive oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon dried thyme</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon dried rubbed sage</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon poultry seasoning</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon celery salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tablespoons unsalted butter</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 yellow onion, chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 ribs celery, chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 cloves garlic, minced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 ounces pecans, whole or pieces (about ½ cup)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tablespoons fresh sage, sliced thinly</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">Salt and pepper, to taste</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Preheat oven to 425℉ and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.</li> <li>In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with olive oil, dried sage, thyme, poultry seasoning, and celery salt. </li> <li>Spread in a thin layer on the lined baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes.</li> <li>In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
