I have had my fair share of stuffing and this by far puts the rest to shame. The absolute best recipe for stuffing, super tasty. Delicious with no variations. It is really hard to believe this recipe is healthy because it is so sinfully good. My boyfriend surprised me with this recipe for Valentines day, WOW. I am BLESSED. eat and be happy. yuuum.
No other stuffing again! By sauteing the veggies in olive oil, this recipe becomes a delicious guilt-free version of a holiday staple. The flavor is wonderful & the result is plenty moist. Works great to make the day before, but bake uncovered or the cool stuffing tends not to heat through. I added 10 oz of baby bella mushrooms as a preference, but this recipe has so much flavor it wasn't really necessary. Also, this filled a deep-dish 9x13 casserole -- WAY more than 8 servings.
This recipe got a great review from my meat-eating family. I made half a recipe using Milton's Multigrain Bread and dried rather than fresh parsley. I substituted the pumpkin seeds with pepitos (couldn't find the pumpkin seeds), using roasted and salted seeds rather than raw--thus eliminating the need to toast them. This makes a very yummy side dish for anyone, vegetarian or not. Thanks for the recipe!
A meal in itself, this stuff is great! My husband has never been so excited to see me bring grape nuts home from the store.
Delicious recipes and got lots of positive remarks. My only qualm is that the stuffing ended up a bit dry on the top crust area. Next time, I'll probably cut the bread bits into smaller cubes and add more liquid to the mixture.
Overall it's great and a definite keeper.
As a lifelong vegetarian I am always looking for interesting recipes for the holidays. I made this for Thanksgiving this year to mixed reviews. I found it rather bland--I think due to the bread I used. The bread will make or break this recipe! I will know next time! I also will add some garlic and maybe more onions.
Excellent! Though I used a bread too thick. Will make sure to use coarse bread next time.
Like the other reviewers on here, I found this recipe just superb, as did most of the 16 other people I cooked it for on Thanksgiving - so many compliments. And that's coming from a family of carnivores. It simply has the perfect balance of flavors without being mushy or reliant on any one flavor. Thanks!
