Vegetarian Stuffing

Challah stuffing with mushrooms is full of the classic savory aromas of the holidays, especially for Thanksgiving. With a simple exchange of stock, this is vegetarian!

Here are the ingredients you need to make the most delicious mushroom stuffing. You'll also love using challah as your bread. Awesome flavor!

Slice bread into ½-inch cubes. Spread cubes on parchment-lined baking sheets. Add olive oil, thyme, sage, salt and pepper and mix.


Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Cubes should be browned but not completely dark. They will firm up when you take them out.


In a large sauté pan cook sliced mushrooms, sage, thyme, chives and soy sauce until most of the liquid has dissipated. Set aside.


In the same pan, sauté the onions on medium low heat until translucent but not brown. Set the onions aside to cool.


Saute the apples, thyme, sage on high heat to quickly sear the outside of the apples and ensure they don't get soft!.


Optionally add the dried cranberries at the very end of sauteing the apples, to soften them up and add a bit of extra flavor.


To a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix. Add about 1 cup of broth and mix again. Taste for seasoning.


Place stuffing in your casserole dish, cover with foil and bake at 375°F for about 30 minutes, add add'l stock if needed.
