Thanksgiving Side Dishes
This seasonal cranberry-walnut Thanksgiving is perfect for your holiday table. The lower-glycemic fruits make it friendly for a low-carb diet. Almond-flour and no wheat ingredients make it a gluten-free stuffing alternative.
This recipe is inspired by Delia Smith, a well-known food writer in the UK. It's a version of a traditional American recipe. Like many recipes for stuffing, the original recipe contained apples, but as apples are a higher carb fruit, I have substituted cranberries which have the dual effect of making the stuffing lower carb and also adding a little extra seasonal color and flavor.
If you are currently avoiding fruit on your low-carb plan, then this recipe may not be for you. However, it is very special and worth the extra carbs if you can fit them in!
