Cauliflower Stuffing

 

You can’t have a Thanksgiving dinner without stuffing.  It is a staple Holiday dish that goes so well with a perfectly cooked Turkey.  This recipe is just as delicious as traditional stuffing and proves that bread is overrated.  As always, get creative with your spices.  Cauliflower is like a sponge and will absorb any flavors you add to it.  If using dry herbs, use half the amount.  Add cayenne for some heat.  Make this dish yours!  We added a bag of crushed pork skins to help give the dish a more bread like feel and it worked great.

4 tbs. butter

1 onion, chopped

2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
