Another awesome vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe coming at ya!
Past recipes (look, our menu is coming together, slowly but surely! Now, I just need an entree and a dessert):
Todayâ€™s recipe is for Mushroom Dressing, AKA Mushroom Stuffing. But since itâ€™s not stuffed in anything, weâ€™ll call it dressing.
The bread is the most important part of great stuffing. You want a long, thin multi-grain or whole-wheat baguette for this dressing. The more seeds, the better!
- 1 long, thin 13 ounce multi-grain baguette, with a hard crust
- 1 pack (8 ounce) white mushrooms
- 5 stalks celery
- 1 handful Italian parsley
- 1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
- 2 cups mushroom broth
- Salt and Pepper (generous amounts)
- Preheat over to 350 degrees and grease a long casserole dish.
- Slice baguette into 1/2 inch wide pieces. Pour into a large bowl.
- Chop celery and mushrooms. Add to bowl.
- Chop parsley. Add to bowl with pepper and salt.
- Add pumpkin seeds to bowl.
- Toss ingredients.
- Pour in broth and use your hands to thoroughly coat all the bread.
- Pour into casserole dish. There will be liquid at the bottom â€“ thatâ€™s OK. Cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake for 1 hour, then increase temperature to 425 degrees, remove aluminum foil, and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Serve and enjoy!
I loved this stuffing. If I were to make it again, I would probably add some melted vegan butter (1/4 cup) to the mix before baking just to give it that extra buttery taste. But all in all, this is a very healthy
stuffing dressing â€“ and I loved it.
I had about 1.5 servings (the recipe makes about 6) with a sweet potato and beans.
For dessert, a leftover bar.
What Iâ€™m Currently Readingâ€¦
I donâ€™t blog about it a lot, but I read a ton of books! I love to read so much and prefer it to watching TV. Iâ€™m currently reading Look Again by Lisa Scottoline. Iâ€™m almost done, and itâ€™s really good. Better and less predictable than you would think it would be.
Recently, other books that Iâ€™ve read/listened to on audio tape and stick out in my mind include:
Down Came the Rain (by Brooke Shields)
I actually liked all the books Iâ€™ve listed, except Guerilla Marketing (it didnâ€™t apply to our acupuncture business as much as Iâ€™d hoped it would) and The Murder Room (because it was disjointed and creepy).
What have you been reading in the last six months or so?
