Turkey And Vegetable Stuffing ~ That Tastes Like Stuffing!

Here’s a healty, weightloss recipe, turkey and vegetable stuffing that tastes like stuffing, without any bread!

Healthy turkey dinner with no bread stuffing!

What do you do if you are cutting back on white processed foods, like flour and processed sugar, and you still want to cook a turkey dinner? I’ve tried. It’s just not the same without the bread or cornbread stuffing, until now.

I recommend an organic, free range turkey and organic vegetables. Throw away the high cholesterol turkey organ meats.

Saute a large onion, two stalks of celery, 4 large or 6 small carrots, and one large parsnip in 2 tablespoons of “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter,” or “Earth Balance” butter substitute, and add more if vegetables stick. Season with 1 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp salt, and 2 tsp poultry seasoning. I used herbs from our herb garden: 4 large leaves of sage, 4 tall stems of creeping thyme, and a couple Rosemary leaves. Fresh herbs are very fragrant and I think, smell and taste better, but dried herbs will also do. This tastes amazing like the flavor of stuffing, without the bread.Cut a large onion in quarters and place in the large cavity of the turkey. Add a large spring of sage, several springs of thyme and rosemary in the cavity.

Spread “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” on the outside of the turkey, and under the skin if you can. Season the ouside of the turkey with pepper and salt. I also used fresh cut up herbs of sage, thyme and rosemary on top of the outside of the turkey.

This is my own recipe, which I found to be surprizingly good as a substitute for those of us trying to make stuffing without bread and fatty meats. If you like this, please let me know, and I’ll put in more recipies on my blog. Happy cooking.

My profile picture is a rose, symbolizing that we should all bloom where we are planted. I am planted in the garden of words of knowledge and inspiration, history and truth, quest and discovery. My latest book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS - CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, has uncovered the deepest mysteries of modern time, mysteries that were planted at the start of time. The theme in this book is: There is one race, the human race. It unveils the secrets of Christmas, Santa Claus, the Magi, Jesus and how Noah's sons repopulate the world through the empires. In the process you meet Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Harriet Tubman, and learn that former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are eighth cousins, both with traces of English royalty through William the Conqueror and Charlemagne in their bloodlines. This book uses real history, ancient and pre-history in this dramatic, plausible fiction/fantasy novel. It took me over a year to research and a lifetime to experience.
