Man oh man, does this look and taste good! Stuffing in general tends to be "stuffed" with high fat and cholesterol but this new version is modified it quite a bit for a much healthier spin so it's lighter with far less butter and added fat . It's also a great place to add some nutrition with the kale and dates. The beauty of the colors and the crunch of almonds in this preparation compliments a beautiful heritage or organic turkey for the full effect of a decadent holiday meal thats a little lighter than the usual fare.
1 loaf sourdough bread (sourdough has the least amount of gluten of any bread type)
6 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil (plus more in a spray bottle)
