  • 3/4 of a loaf of gluten-free bread about 12 oz or about 5-6 cups of cubes (I used Canyon Bakehouse whole-grain style)
  • 6 tablespoons butter divided, plus more for buttering baking dish
  • 1 large or 2 medium onions peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 stalks celery finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • ½ tablespoon chopped thyme plus a few sprigs for garnish
  • ½ tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon pink sea salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups gluten-free chicken or vegetable broth


  • Tear or cut bread into cubes and leave out overnight to dry. (Alternately, place bread in a single layer on baking sheets and bake at 200º for 20 minutes.)
  • Preheat oven to 350º F and butter a 8" x 11" baking dish.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter. Add onion and celery and cook until soft and translucent, 8-10 minutes. Stir in garlic, sage, thyme, and rosemary and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Stir in remaining 5 tablespoons butter and parsley. Once the butter has melted, turn off the heat.
  • Pour bread cubes into the pot and stir to coat with the butter-vegetable mixture. Stir in the chicken broth and toss well to distribute evenly.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish and cover with foil. Bake until cooked through, 45 minutes, then remove foil and cook until bread is golden, 15 minutes more. 
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.
