Perfect for enjoying as a Christmas side or for stuffing into the neck of your turkey, this delicious gluten-free stuffing is packed with classic festive fruits and fragrant herbs.
- Boil the rice, cherries, and apricots in a large pot of water until al dente. You want some bite to it as it needs to cook further in the oven. Drain and place in a large bowl.
- Preheat the oven to gas 6, 190°C, fan 170°C. Heat the butter in a large pan. Add the onions, celery, thyme, sage and seasoning. Sauté for 10 mins or until soft. Add to the rice mixture, with the stock, spinach and, if using, beaten egg. Season again. Spoon into a gratin dish, cover with foil and bake in the oven for 1 hr. Alternatively, this can be stuffed in the neck of the turkey and cooked with it.
