This gluten free version of the traditional holiday stuffing will satisfy your palette around the holiday season. Instead of bread, rice is used. This recipe is adapted from the original recipe here. The first time I tried using the wild rice with the arborio rice, they didn't cook at the same time, so I decided to omit the wild rice. Other than that, it tastes exactly like stuffing....without the gluten. Hope you enjoy.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35-45 minutes
5 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups carrots, finely diced
1 1/2 cups celery, finely diced
1 1/2 cups onion (1 medium sized onion), finely diced
1 lb mushrooms, diced
3 cups arborio rice
8 cups (or more) chicken broth
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp marjoram
WHAT TO DO
1 In a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the olive oil.
2 Add the carrots, celery, onions, and mushrooms. Cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3 Add the rice and stir to coat for about a minute.
4 Add enough broth to just cover the ingredients, and turn down to a simmer.
5 Continue to cook just like risotto, stirring almost continuously, about every couple minutes or so. Continue adding broth a half cup at a time.
6 After 30 minutes, add the spices.
7 Continue adding broth if the rice is not done and keep stirring to keep from burning at the bottom.
8 When the rice is cooked through, turn off the heat and serve.
To save time, you can certainly make 1 day ahead.
