Moroccan Simple Stuffing [Vegan, Gluten-Free]





Cooking Time



  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 Cups Apple, diced (about 2 large apples)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 loaf gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped and tightly packed
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2/3 cup pure apple juice
  • 1/3 cup roasted salted pistachios, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a large casserole dish.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat the oil on medium/high heat.
  3. Add in the onion and cook until soft and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add in the apple, ginger and cinnamon, cumin, paprika, and allspice and cook just until the apple begins to soften about 2 minutes.
  5. Add the cooked apple mixture into a huge bowl. Add in the bread cubes, salt, cilantro, apricots, and golden raisins. Toss until evenly mixed.
  6. Add in the vegetable broth and apple juice and gently mix (using your hands is the easiest) until the bread has absorbed the moisture.
  7. Bake until the bread is cooked and the top is golden brown and slightly crispy about 45-50 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle with pistachios and DEVOUR!
