Grain Free Paleo Stuffing Dressing

Paleo Stuffing Dressing is a great recipe that is full of real ingredients without any of the fake stuff that most stuffing recipes have.  It is a combination of fruits, vegetables and herbs that are full of life-giving nutrients and overall it is lower in inflammatory carbohydrates.

This isn’t a ketogenic recipe, but it has a lot of healthy fats, fiber and carminative herbs to support the development of a healthy microbiome.  Try it out and let us know what you think!  If you enjoy recipes like this, you may be interested in my advanced nutrition and recipe book the Keto Metabolic Breakthrough.

Yield 6-8 Servings


  • 2 large turnips, peeled and cubed
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 3 large onions, diced
  • 5 large ribs of celery, diced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 2-3 teaspoons or more garlic powder (to taste)
  • 2-3 teaspoons sage or more (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of pink salt or more (to taste)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, or organic, grass fed butter


Step #1:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step #2:  Grease 2 large baking sheets with oil and evenly spread the turnips and sweet potatoes on them (Depending on the size of your baking sheets, it may take another baking sheet or a couple rounds to fit them all)

Step #3:  Sprinkle with some of the garlic, sage, rosemary, thyme, turmeric, pepper and salt and toss with your hands.

Step #4:  Place into oven and bake for about an hour until they are soft and starting to brown… toss a few times to brown evenly.  Once you remove the the root vegetables, turn oven down to 350 degrees.

Step #5:  Meanwhile, brown the onions, and celery. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the onions soften.  Add in mushrooms and the apple. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.  Taste and adjust for seasoning.

Step #6:  Once turnips and sweet potatoes are done, mix with the celery mixture, stir to combine.

Step #7:  Transfer to a greased baking dish and cover with foil or a glass lid, bake for 30 minutes.

Dr Jockers Comments:

The typical stuffing dressing is full of gluten containing grains, hydrogenated oils (trans-fats), MSG and other additives and preservatives.  We want to enjoy our Thanksgiving meal without poisoning our body.  This recipe tastes great and packs a punch of nutrition in every bite.

This grain free paleo stuffing dressing contains loads of superfoods like celery, mushrooms and grass-fed butter.  It is also full of phytonutrient dense super herbs.  We love turmeric, garlic powder, sage, rosemary and thyme.  These contain loads of powerful antioxidants that help reduce inflammatory stress in the body.  Enjoy!   If you are looking for a more detailed fat burning, keto meal plan and recipes than check our complete Navigating the Ketogenic Diet program here.

  1. This looks so delicious! Thanks for posting such healthy recipe ideas for Thanksgiving. Last year I tried a “gluten free” mix, and it didn’t taste good at all. This looks amazing! Blessings!
