At last ~ a HEALTHY stuffing.....that seems like an oxymoron! High in fiber and nutrients but low in fat, this recipe is based on one from the USA Rice Federation. It's quick to make and can be the poultry stuffing, served as a side to holiday dinners, or be a stand-alone luncheon entree. Consider making it a day or so after the turkey was baked: prepare the recipe adding chopped leftover turkey in the last step, and if desired some Greek yogurt or light sour cream to bind it. So glad I came across this one and gave it a chance. It's not just a holiday recipe, but one we'll enjoy year-round.
