Vegetable Cornbread Stuffing

HCG Injections

Stuffing is a traditional staple at holiday meals that is customizable according to the requirements of your diet regimen. Rather than incorporating refined white bread, try a whole-grain alternative for the HCG diet. Whole grains are a great source of fiber, which helps digestion and boost weight loss. 

Ingredients for the cornbread:

  • ¾ cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup of unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ cup stone-ground cornmeal
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of  frozen corn kernels, softened and mashed

For the stuffing:

  • 1 cup of diced leeks
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of chicken broth (low-sodium)
