The Thursday Gourmet: Vegetarian Stuffing

26 November, 2009

First off, let me wish everyone a Happy National Turkey Genocide Day.  Of course, being different, we had a roast chicken.  And mashed potatoes (homemade).  And roasted Brussels sprouts.  And cranberry sauce.  I am now fulfilling another Thanksgiving Day tradition by watching the Lions lose.  And, while I digest all the good stuff, here’s a useful recipe for anyone who has vegetarians for dinner (if vegetarians eat vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?):  vegetarian stuffing (and yes, I know this would have been more useful a week ago, but (((Wife))) and I wanted to test our idea to see if it was edible).

Vegetarian Bread Stuffing

(Do not put the vegetarian stuffing inside the bird:  that would negate the vegetarianism.)

12 cups of bread cubes (whole wheat and white (no rye))
6 stalks celery (with leaves (if present)) halved lengthwise and chopped
2 yellow onions, peeled and sliced lengthwise
2 Tbsp rubbed sage
1 Tbsp ground savory
1 Tbsp ground white pepper
1 Tbsp marjoram
1 – 2 tsp Kosher salt
1 cup carrots, cut into 2 inch lengths and slivered
1 stick butter, melted
3 cups of really good vegetable broth (I use Wegmans, the kind that comes in a cardboard box)

Mix together the bread, celery, onions, sage, savory, pepper, marjoram and salt.  Keep mixing it until the seasonings are evenly distributed.  Then pour in the broth and the butter and mix until all the bread is a little damp.

Place in a large covered dish and bake, covered, for about an hour at 350 degrees.  Remove the lid and let it go for another 1/2 hour.

Vegetarian (((Girl))) pronounced it delicious.

And again, Happy National Meleagris Genocide Day!



  1. That sounds delicious. I’m about to sit down to dinner myself (Tofurkey with all the trimmings–my better half and MOL are having turkey and trimmings). We bake our stuffing in a dish and use veggie broth (Safeway Organic this year, since it was on sale) so it’s vegetarian safe.

    Happy Tofurkey Day!

  3. Buffy: You killed a tofurkey? Have you no decency? Don’t you realize that tofurkeys are endangered? (Just like Naugas and Vinyls (the only place you can find vinyl today is an island called vinylhaven off the coast of Maine.)

  4. Yet another one of your posts I’m going to have to bookmark. And MMMMmmmmmm. Roasted Brussels sprouts.

    Happy…um…well it’s probably the day after Meleagris/Gallus/Glycine Genocide Day for you.

  7. Laurie: I quarter the sprouts, slice the onions lengthwise, toss them in extra-virgin olive oil, Kosher salt, cayenne pepper, garlic (whole peeled cloves if you have them work wonderfully), black pepper, and parsley. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes untilt the edges of the sprouts beginst to char.

    The day afte Christmas is Boxing Day. The day after Thanksgiving is Belching Day. Happy Belching (or Erructing) Day to you.

  8. great recipe. love all the herbs! i don’t like ready made broth but a quick and easy sub i use is water flavored with braggs, yellow mustard powder, hing and nutritional yeast. works great for stuffing.

  9. I was on a vegan diet for a while. Didn’t like it; they were kind of hard to catch, the fear reaction chemicals flavored them some, wasn’t much to them, so I had to catch quite a few for a decent meal. Maybe your stuffing would help the taste…kind of extend the bulk of the meal…:-)

    My one nephew and his wife are both Quakers and vegans.

    A while back we went to visit them, and we went out to dinner at a buffet. My oldest grand-niece had to go to the latrine every ten minutes it seemed, and I, myself, had to excuse myself, and I noticed something.

    She was NOT going to the “Euphemism” at all, she would drop down out of sight and sneak over to the steam tables and I caught her kiping MEAT!
    She got this horrified look on her face when she saw me looking, but I just winked and kept walking. Didn’t peach on her, either.

  10. Deva and Sarge: Luckily, (((Girl))) is not vegan. She likes cheese way too much.

    Many (make that some) “vegetarians” are better described as 99%ers — they are usually veggies, but occasionally, a buger (or other meat) hits the spot. It doesn’t make them hypocrites, just honest.
