vegan stuffing, and pictures of my holy hands…

I am very grateful that Thanksgiving, for me, always means extra quality time with my family. This year, my sister and brother-in-law (and adorable nephew) were with us for dinner with our dad’s side of the family. Sister and BIL *love* taking pictures, more than anyone I know – including my photographer friends! Sis wanted to take pictures while I made the stuffing (or dressing, if you prefer). She discovered the mini setting and took a bajillion pictures of my hands while I worked. She said the setting made my hands look “holy”.
So, not only do you get a recipe this evening, but I am also posting more pictures than usual just so you can get an eyeful of my sister’s handiwork. Enjoy. Oh, and while you’re at, be sure to preheat your oven to 400.

You will need 10 Cups of 1/2″ bread cubes. A standard loaf will be more than enough.

My cup runneth over. I had to add extra bread because sis wanted to get an action shot of me piling it on….

and an action shot of me pouring the bread cubes into the pan.

And an action shot of me touching the bread cubes for absolutely no good reason but aesthetics.

And this was just for fun.

But seriously. The pan of bread cubes needs to go into the oven to bake until the cubes are nice and toasted. Check them after 10 – 15 minutes. You may need to turn them and bake them a few minutes more. When they’re done, put them in a large bowl and turn the oven down to 350. Meanwhile…

Saute about a cup each of finely chopped celery and onion in olive oil, with fresh garlic to taste. Once the celery and garlic are soft and onions are clear…

add them to the bowl of bread cubes.

Add your seasonings to taste: Parsley, sage, salt, pepper, thyme.

Mix. Then add 2 – 3 Cups of broth. Mix it up and pour the stuffing back into your baking dish.

If you’d like, drizzle a bit of olive oil on top. Bake approximately 25 minutes, covered. If you prefer the stuffing a little crispy on top, remove the cover and bake an additional 5 – 15 minutes, until it reaches desired crunchiness. Excellent with mashed potatoes and gravy, and my gravy recipe is coming soon!

P.S. You can see my other stuffing recipe HERE.
