3/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp teaspoon Sage
1 tsp teaspoon Thyme

1 loaf gluten free bread (tear into pieces & leave out over night in a large bowl)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 Tablespoons Flax Meal
1/4 cup water

2.    Add onion; sauté until translucent. Remove from pan.
3.    Now melt 1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil in large skillet over medium heat.
4.    Add celery; sauté until tender.
5.    Stir in sage, thyme, salt, pepper.
6.    Transfer to large mixing bowl.
7.    Add remaining stuffing ingredients; mix well.
8.    If too dry add some more water.
9.    Put in a large baking dish with a lid.
10.    Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Note:   The celery in this recipe has amazing benefits. It is alkalizing, easy to digest, high in fiber and low in calories.

This recipe is soo good that I have included it in one of my mini  2-5-30 Healthy Diet Courses.

It is also the kind of recipe you learn to combine in my Fancy Five Course Vegetarian Meal

    Do you mean one celery stalk or one bunch celery?

    I’m baking it right now. What temperature? I used the whole bunch of celery. One stalk wouldn’t be enough. Had to add a lot of water. Maybe my organic spelt loaf was too big.

  3. Actually you are right it is a whole bunch of celery. Bake at 350 degrees.
