Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Vidalia onion, diced (I use my food processor)
  • 3 Cups Apple, diced (about 2 large apples - I like Fuji)
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Ground allspice
  • 1 Loaf Udi's Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin bread, cut into 1 inch cubes *
  • 1 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 Cup Cilantro, roughly chopped and tightly packed
  • 1/2 Cup Dried apricots, diced
  • 1/2 Cup Golden raisins
  • 1 Cup Reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2/3 Cup Pure apple juice
  • 1/3 Cup Roasted salted pistachios, roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a large casserole dish.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil on medium/high heat.
  • Add in the onion and cook until soft and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add in the apple, ginger and cinnamon, cumin, paprika and allspice and cook just until the apple begins to soften, about 2 minutes. 
  • Add the cooked apple mixture into a very large bowl. Add in the bread cubes, salt, cilantro, apricots and golden raisins. Toss until evenly mixed.
  • Add in the chicken broth and apple juice and gently mix (using your hands is the easiest) until the bread has absorbed the moisture.
  • Bake until the bread is cooked and the top is golden brown and slightly crispy, about 45-50 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with pistachios and DEVOUR!

Notes

*I cut each slice into 3 vertical slices then 2 horizontal, so each slice gave 9 cubes.
