This low sodium stuffing with sage is a fantastic and tasty no-salt stuffing or dressing that tastes even better than store bought! This stuffing is made with low sodium bread, onion, celery, herbs, and a salt free vegetable stock.

Great for stuffing in a turkey, or enjoying as dressing by baking in a casserole dish. We enjoy this stuffing all year, not just for holidays – it’s great to serve with roasted chicken for a complete family meal.

This low sodium stuffing recipe is made with cubed bread and is a fresh and flavorful stuffing that everyone at the table can enjoy! And believe me, you will NOT miss the salt in this version. Store bought stuffing is absolutely loaded with preservatives and sodium (1 bag = 200% of your daily sodium intake, yikes!) so I wanted to make a better version that had all the flavor of bagged stuffing but without the sodium.
 
This is a great stuffing to enjoy with Thanksgiving turkey or with a Christmas roast… or any holiday you celebrate! We are especially mindful of our sodium content, which can be difficult during the holidays. Enjoying this stuffing, and more low sodium recipes, is a great way to heat better.

  • Herby

What’s In This Low Sodium Stuffing Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Onion, Celery, Parsley, Garlic – All the flavor, without the salt!
  • No Salt Vegetable Stock or Bouillon: I love this no salt vegetable base for my recipes because it has a great flavor and is lower in sodium. I only develop my recipes with low sodium ingredients so the ingredients shine.  You can always add salt to a recipe if it needs it, but it’s almost impossible to take it out!
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Herbes de Provence: my favorite spice blend! This French blend has a mix of rosemary, thyme, sage, and savory for a wonderful and complex flavor.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Ground Sage: I love adding this ground sage to stuffing, its a classic! You can also use fresh sage.
  • Fresh Bread: You can use homemade salt free bread, or a store-bought loaf (I like Ezekiel’s No Salt Added Bread Which has 0mg sodium). Either way you will have delicious stuffing.
  • Walnuts: I topped the stuffing with unsalted walnuts with some extra crunch and delicious flavor. The walnuts bake in the oven and get all warm and toasted.

One of the BEST No Salt Holiday Recipes

This salt free stuffing recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal! It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards. You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand! Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious meals using a few staples you can rotate.

How Do I Make This Thanksgiving Stuffing Low Sodium?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over low heat and sauté the onion, celery, and garlic for 4 to 5 minutes until veggies begin to soften. Add the vegetable stock, Herbes de Provence, garlic powder, sage, parsley, and bread. Mix well until the vegetable stock has absorbed into the bread.
  3. Transfer to a 13×9 baking dish and top with crushed walnuts. 
  4. Cover with tin foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. If you want a crispy stuffing, then remove foil halfway during cooking.

Notes

Low Sodium Bread

I like to bake my own bread at home so I can control the amount of salt in the dish. You can use homemade bread, or a store-bought loaf for this recipe.
    • Always check the ingredient labels to make sure the sodium content fits in with your dietary needs. This recipe is written as low sodium, but that is because I used a low sodium homemade bread and no-sodium stock… your ingredients may vary.
    • The lowest sodium bread I have found at the store is Ezekiel’s No Salt Added Bread, which I can find in the frozen section, and has 0mg sodium per slice.
    • Bread Buying tip! I’ve found that sourdough bread typically has less sodium than other kinds of bread, so even buying store bought can be OK for those cutting back on their sodium intake, again, check labels first.
  • If you are gluten free, make sure you choose a gluten free loaf to cube up for this recipe.

    Made this for Thanksgiving when my son’s girlfriend was on a low-sodium diet. A few family members NOT on a restricted diet also ate it, and now I get requests for an encore. Big hit!
