Serves 8 - 2 Hours
1 loaf (1 lb) Sprouted Bread
6 tbsp Dr. Bronner's Regenerative Organic Coconut Oil
2 large Sweet Yellow Onions, minced
4 Celery Stalks, minced
2 tbsp (packed) Minced Fresh Thyme
2 1/3 cup Vegetable Stock
1/3 cup Dried Goji Berries
2/3 cup Hemp Seeds
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Substitution: Gluten free bread may be substituted if desired.
Preheat oven to 300 F. Tear bread into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces, and spread onto a baking sheet. Bake 1 hours, tossing once or twice midway through, until bread is golden and toasted. Remove bread from the oven to cool. Turn heat to 425 F.
Warm coconut oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions and celery. Cook until softened, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix in thyme and cook 1 minute longer.
Transfer contents of the pan to a large mixing bowl. Pour in vegetable broth. Add salt and pepper. Combine.
Add toasted bread, goji berries, and hemp seeds, and toss well. Transfer mixture to a 12 x 9 baking dish. Press down lightly, creating an even layer. If any goji berries are exposed, press down to submerge into stuffing to avoid burning.
Cover the dish tightly with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove foil and bake uncovered for 10 - 15 minutes, or until top of the stuffing has browned.
