Super Veggie Sage Stuffing with Brussels Broccoli + Kale

Super Veggie Sage Stuffing | @withfoodandlove

As life currently stands, I may or may not celebrate Thanksgiving next week. I mean not in the traditional sense at least.

Option one – be all comfy, cozy and warm at my mother’s home in Connecticut, sharing the special day with my grandmother and my sister and my husband. Option two – be tucked in tight of the passenger seat of my Jeep, racing the clock, plowing through middle America behind a moving truck. Only time will tell, but until then I will be daydreaming about this Thanksgiving of my dreams.

The menu would include:

Drinking alternating glasses of this earl grey cider cocktail
+ Shelly’s Pomegranate Cranberry Punch.

And eating Kris’s Sweet Potato Pancakes
My Creamy Broccoli Fennel Soup
Ashley’s mashed potatoes + gravy
This super veggie sage stuffing
Beth’s Sauteed Green Beans with Mushrooms + Caramelized Leeks
Laura’s Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad
My Roasted Acorn Squash with Caramelized Shallots
+ Lindsey’s Cranberry Lemon Tart with a giant dollop of my Earl Grey Whipped Cream!

Super Veggie Sage Stuffing with Brussels Broccoli + Kale {print me!}

Inspired by, Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg + Zoe Francois

Notes: this stuffing will serve 4 – 6 people and can be made with any bread of choice: gluten-free, vegan or otherwise.


  • {1} loaf of gluten-free bread
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or ghee
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium leek, sliced into thin medallions
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup shredded brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded kale
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage leaves, lightly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • sea salt
  • coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 egg or flax egg

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare bread by laying out on a baking sheet. If you have the time allow it to become stale overnight. If you didn’t plan ahead you can also lightly toast it in the oven, just enough to take some of the moisture out of it. Once the bread is prepped, cut or tear it into bite sized pieces. It should measure about 10 {loosely packed} cups.

In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over low and saute the garlic, leeks. Then add in the celery, brussels sprouts and broccoli, cook for another 5 minutes. Then add in the kale, parsley, sage and 1/2 cup veggie stock, turn the heat up to medium and simmer gently for about 3 – 5 minutes. The veggies will be done when bright green + tender.

In a large bowl toss the bread with the egg or flax egg. Then toss the bread with the veggie mixture and remaining vegetable stock. Bake uncovered for 25 – 30 minutes.

    Stuffing is definitely my favorite side dish. Love your version that is super duper loaded with veggies. It’s a nice contrast to all the brown foods that are usually at the Thanksgiving table.

    I’m probably one of five people who don’t like stuffing, but I DO like brussels sprouts. Love them, actually. Roasted brussels, possibly mixed with some other winter veg like cauliflower or parsnips, is the best. Especially the crispy edge pieces!

    Happy holidays to you and yours,

    I am a huge stuffing and potatoe fan. Trying to make healthier choices for the feast, I am happy you posted the mashed potatoe w/vegan gravy and the yummy veggie sage stuffing. I am sure it will be a hit with Brussel sprout

    I’m new to your page, and I’ve already referred you to a few friends. I love the book, and I do have someone to get it for as a Christmas gift, so thanks for the suggestion. As to my favorite side dish, it has to be my mom’s PA Dutch potato filling. I really wish someone would come up with a healthier version of it; but until then, if I’m going to die from food, it’ll be with a smile on my face, as I eat hers. :0)

    This stuffing looks so yummy and those links are so inspiring.
    For me thanksgiving means a large portion of stuffing and pecan pie.. I guess I am not a big turkey person.
    Love your photography.

    This looks AMAZING, and is on the list of “must-make” sides this year. Question, though… where/when do I add the sage?

    Unfortunately, whenever I think of people who are gluten-free I think of the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they asked people in a park if they were gluten-free, and then proceeded to ask them why and what gluten actually is. Sadly, no one knew the answer and no one could explain why they were gluten-free besides that they heard it was healthy. I always feel for people who actually NEED to be gluten-free, my uncle being one of them as he has celiac disease, and I think he would love this book. We always have to make something “special” for him, but I’m sure this book has recipes that literally everyone would think is delicious, so that he doesn’t have to be singled out anymore!
