This makes a loose stuffing. You can add ½ cup of kamut, spelt, brown rice flour or choice to thicken up the vegetable stock to tighten up the stuffing. Just sift the flour over the broth when simmering and mix thoroughly so there are no lumps. Add a pat of butter to make it richer.

You can add dried currants or cranberries and raw or toasted pine nuts if you are having a nut/dried fruit based dinner.
