Gluten-Free Millet Stuffing

Gluten-Free Millet Stuffing

Classic stuffing is made with bread and has little nutritional value. Try this easy gluten-free stuffing recipe instead. This is a more nutritious side dish for your holiday meal. Made with millet, lots of vegetables, and fresh herbs.

The health benefits of herbs

Herbs are bursting with flavor and nutrients, and incorporating them into your meals is a sure way to add some valuable nutrients to your food. Fresh herbs are an important source of polyphenols that have anti-inflammatory properties.



- Millet - Water - Extra virgin olive oil - Leek - Onion - Celery - Fennel - Allspice - Salt & pepper - Sage - Thyme - Rosemary - Eggs


Rinse the millet in cold water and place the millet in an instant pot/pressure cooker. Add 2 cups of water, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, seal the pot and cook on high pressure for 11 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally, take the lid off and fluff with a fork.

Cook millet


Sauté all the vegetables, in a big skillet, in olive oil until soft and fragrant. Add the fresh herbs and spices, combine well, saute for a few more minutes, and take off the heat.

Saute vegetables


Beat the eggs with water, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Beat the eggs


Combine the cooked millet with the sautéed vegetables and herbs in the skillet or in the casserole dish and add the eggs, combining well. Level and bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 350F/180C.

Combine and bake 


After 20 minutes toss the mixture again, trying to mix the parts at the bottom (where most of the egg tends to drop) with the parts at the top. Bake for 20 more minutes.

Toss the mixture


Take out, garnish with fresh herbs, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve warm. This meal can also be reheated. Millet tends to dry out, so you will need some vegetable/chicken stock to rehydrate it.
