Classic Low FODMAP Sourdough Stuffing

Sometimes simple is best. This Simple Sourdough Stuffing combines low FODMAP bread with celery, leeks and scallions (green parts only, of course), fresh parsley and all of the traditional herbs like sage, rosemary and thyme.

We like to cook it outside the bird to control the moisture/crunchy ratio (we are assuming Thanksgiving here, but it goes just as well with a weeknight chicken). Also, this way you can make the stuffing vegetarian, as we did here with FODY Vegetable Soup Base, to satisfy any lacto-ovo vegetarians at the table.

Sourdough Bread is Your Low FODMAP Friend

Sourdough bread made with wheat flour is low enough in FODMAPs to be considered suitable even for the Elimination phase IF it has been made with a slow rise (at least 24 hours) and a true sourdough starter.

There are so many places to get good bread these days. Ask the local baker questions! Note that this does not make the recipe gluten-free.

Simple Sourdough Stuffing

Our Simple Sourdough Stuffing is low FODMAP and works well as a vegetarian side dish as well.

Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 10 cups (2.4 L); serving size 1/2 cup (120 ml)

Makes: 20 servings
Prep Time: 18 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 8 minutes
Author: Dédé Wilson

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound (455 g) loaf low FODMAP artisanal sourdough bread, torn into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces, to equal about 10 cups (2.4 L)
  • 4 cups (960 ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon FODY Vegetable Soup Base
  • 12 tablespoons (170 g) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup (54 g) finely chopped leeks, green parts only
  • 3/4 cup (48 g) finely chopped scallions, green parts only
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (16 g) chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed thyme
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, whisked

Preparation:

  1. If you want to stuff this stuffing in your turkey, follow your own recipe’s instructions. Our directions here are for baking the stuffing in a casserole dish alongside.
  2. Position rack in center of oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Butter the inside of a large casserole dish. A 3 quart (2.8 L) size or a 13 by 9-inch (33 cm by 23 cm) oven-safe dish works well.
  3. Place torn bread in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
  4. Bring the water to a boil in a pot, whisk in the soup base, and simmer for 1 minute; set aside.
  5. Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat, add leek and scallion greens and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Scrape the entire mixture over the bread. Add celery, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and season well with salt and pepper. Fold in eggs then slowly add enough soup base to moisten well.
  6. Loosely spoon stuffing into prepared dish and cover with foil. Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes or until hot all the way through. If you like a crunchy top, remove foil for last 15 minutes of baking. Serve immediately.

Tips

  • Note the combo of fresh parsley along with dried herbs. We always use parsley fresh, but sometimes dried herbs work very well and are even preferred, such as in this recipe. BUT, make sure your dried herbs are not old and musty. Replace if they have been hanging around for more than 6 months. "Fresh" dried herbs will have much better flavor.
