RECIPE: Vegetarian Stovetop Stuffing

Here is some yummy stuffing. I didn't get any pictures of the cooking process, but here's the recipe...

Vegetarian Stovetop Stuffing
Adapted from

serves 4


2 C small-cubes or 3 C large-cubes stale bread
1/4 C butter
1&1/4 C vegetable stock
1/2 C finely minced yellow/sweet onions**
1 t dried parsley
1/2 t salt
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t dried sage
1/4 t ground pepper
1/4 t celery seed

In a medium saucepan over low heat, sweat the onions in the butter for 2-3 minutes until butter is melted. Add seasonings and stir. Add vegetable stock and stir until combined. Bring to a simmer- about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs, giving a quick stir to coat. Place lid over pan and let sit 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving.

Yeah, baby! That is some good stuffing! The only thing was that it was a little too wet and mushy. So next time I might ease up on the liquid a bit- substantially ease up on it. Since I added a few extra handfuls of breading after seeing the liquid flooding the dish, and still wound up with mushy stuffing, I would probably start with about 3/4 cup of liquid and add more until it seemed about right. But very good flavor!
