Since Thanksgiving is two days away, and food is on everyone’s mind I thought I would share the Stuffing recipe I use, and make every year: Wild Rice & Mushroom Stuffing. It’s GF and DF (if you use vegan butter, which I do and it still taste great)! I already made it once this year for early Thanksgiving, and am getting ready to make it again on Turkey Day!

You can find the recipe on the magazine website or here: Wild Rice & Mushroom stuffing
A few tips for you:
-Wash the leeks really well. They hold a ton of dirt and grime!
-Leave the leek greens in big pieces…it makes it easier to discard them once the rice is cooked
-I used a combo of sliced fresh cremini mushrooms and dried porcini mushrooms. The porcini mushrooms give it a richer, meatier flavor, and you can use the water you soak them in (to reconstitute them) in place of 1/2 cup of the broth.
-For some reason I could not find currents anywhere this year, so I used dried cranberry’s instead and no one noticed, and I thought it tasted great still.
-Pay or bribe someone to zest the lemons for you! My least favorite thing to do in the kitchen.
It’s a really great way to assure those with food allergies/issues still have a yummy stuffing dish to eat with Mr. Turkey.
What’s your Thanksgiving “thing” that you make every year…aside from the turkey of course!
