Pear, Macadamia, Cranberry Stuffing

November 26, 2011

Here is a vegetarian stuffing that is also low fat using olive oil and vegetable broth instead of butter or margarine. Here are the ingredients:

1 medium onion chopped

2 stalks celery chopped

1 bosc pear cut into 3/8″ cubes

1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup olive oil

vegetable broth

6 oz. bag seasoned corn bread stuffing

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. dried sage

black pepper to taste

Saute onions in some of the olive oil until transluscent. Add in celery then continue to saute until softened. Add in nuts, pear, cranberries and seasonings and continue to saute for a couple more minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in cornbread stuffing and drizzle the oil over and mix thoroughly. Add in broth as needed to moisten stuffing – more or less depending on how moist you want it. Mix in parsley. Transfer to oven-proof casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Fluff before serving and enjoy!
