How Do I Make This Sourdough Bread & Sage Stuffing Recipe?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the whole wheat loaf into 1/2 inch cubes. In a large bowl, toss the bread with olive oil and place on a sheet pan. Place the sheet pan on the center rack in the oven, and bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway.
  3. 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, and salt.
  4. Remove the toasted whole wheat bread from the oven, and place in the pan with the vegetables. Mix well until the vegetable stock has absorbed into the bread.
  5. Transfer to a 13×9 baking dish and top with crushed walnuts. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until brown and crispy.

Where Can I Buy One Degree Organics Sprouted Flours?

Because of it’s popularity, you can find One Degree Organic Flours in almost any major grocery store. They have it at my local Whole Foods and Stop & Shop stores (for all you fellow New Englanders).
Aside from their flours I’d recommend their Sprouted Rolled Oats too. I made delicious oatmeal daily with them, and let me tell you, YUM.

Notes

I used Whole Wheat Bread made with our favorite Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour: I used a combination of this organic sprouted whole wheat flour and all purpose to make this loaf light and fluffy.  You can use all whole wheat flour, but the texture will be denser and it won’t rise as much – that’s why I found the combination of the two flours does the trick perfectly!
