Vegetable stuffing is one of my favorite holiday foods! With Thanksgiving a not so distant memory, our December holiday meals often bear a similarity. Therefore, add a flavorful stuffing to accompany any holiday meal.
Saute chopped onions, broccoli and other vegetables (except mushrooms) in oil on the stove in a large pan med heat until nearly cooked. Then add mushrooms. Continue to cook to prevent sticking and over cooking.
In a separate large bowl, place seasoned bread stuffing and bread. Take a cup of boiling water, pour over and mix together. Add vegetable broth until mixture is well blended and moist (not wet) if you over do the liquid you can always add more packaged stuffing or bread.
Fold in the vegetable mixture to the bread mixture, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
Cook's Notes: As you can see, vegetables can be added or removed from this recipe. You can also add walnuts or chestnuts as they add a wholesome flavor to a stuffing. You may prefer to use chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth. I do stuff the turkey while cooking, and I always make a separate veggie stuffing casserole for those who do not eat turkey. It's quite simple but delicious.
