Try something new this Holiday season, starting with this barley-based stuffing! With cranberries and almonds, this stuffing is a delicious, healthy, wholegrain alternative to traditional stuffing based on bread, and boxed stuffing which can be full of unhealthy additives.
2 cups organic chicken broth
1 cup quick-cooking barley
½ cup onions
½ cup dried unsulfured cranberries
2 tbsp slivered almonds
½ tsp sage
½ tsp garlic pepper
1 bone-in organic turkey breast
1/3 cup parsley
Combine broth, barley, onion, cranberries, almonds, sage, and garlic pepper in slow cooker. Brown the turkey breast and add to cooker. Cook on low 3-4 hours or until temperature reaches 170ºF. Place turkey breast on a cutting board, cover with foil, and let stand 10-15 minutes before carving. Stir parsley into the stuffing and serve with turkey.
