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 healthy version that had all the flavor of bagged stuffing but without the junk. This is a great stuffing to enjoy with Thanksgiving turkey or with a Christmas roast… or any holiday you celebrate!

This Reduced Sodium Stuffing Recipe with Sage Is:

  • Herby
  • Warming
  • Light
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Savory
  • Great as a Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any holiday side dish
  • Low Sodium and Vegetarian, and Egg & Dairy Free!

Low Sodium Thanksgiving Recipes

I made this low sodium stuffing recipe this year for our fourth Thanksgiving in a row cooking in our house! This year we stayed and cooked at home, just the two of us. Last year my family came in from Chicago and we celebrated together, making a big meal with a farm fresh turkey from down the road. And the year before, we cooked at home after a giant snow storm caused us to miss our flights out to Calgary for our wedding reception. We may have missed our own wedding reception, but everyone else still went and had a blast!

We keep almost all of our cooking low sodium, year round!  I have a bunch of low sodium recipes here on this site!  Note: ingredients may vary, so always check the nutritional labels of ingredients before you add them to your dish. Just because something says “low sodium” that doesn’t mean it fits in with your dietary needs.  Make sure you talk with your doctor about the right amount of sodium for you.

How Do I Make This Healthy Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe Low Sodium?

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 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.
  • Transfer to a 13x9 baking dish and top with crushed walnuts.  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.
    • 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 sourdough loaf to cube up for this recipe.
