Re­think stuff­ing

Women's Health (South Africa) - - WEIGHT LOSS -

Ditch the bread and try this Pa­leo, plant-based, gluten­free stuff­ing al­ter­na­tive: roast 2 cups cubed sweet pota­toes and 1 cup quar­tered Brussels sprouts. In a large saucepan, sauté 3⁄4 ta­ble­spoon diced onion and 1⁄4 cup each baby mar­row, but­ter­nut and ap­ple in 3⁄4 ta­ble­spoon olive oil un­til caramelised. Add a ta­ble­spoon each of fresh sage and (real) maple syrup (or honey), 3⁄4 tea­spoon Hi­malayan sea salt, a pinch each fresh thyme and chilli flakes and 1⁄4 tea­spoon ap­ple­cider vine­gar, then toss with the roasted veg­eta­bles. Op­tional el­e­va­tions: chopped pecans and pomegranate seeds. The re­sult? All the tra­di­tional flavour of stuff­ing with 585 kilo­joules per halfcup serv­ing. It also makes a great break­fast hash the next day. Just top with a poached egg.
