Individual Stuffing

Individual Stuffing, originally uploaded by Vegan Year.

Just to get all you American readers thinking about your Thanksgiving here is some thing I had for ours! Perfectly individually portioned piles of stuffing goodness, great for your holiday meals or any time you’d like something a little different on the side.

Individual Stuffing
Makes 12

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 medium Onion, finely chopped, about 1 Cup
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 stalk Celery, finely chopped, about ½ Cup

1 medium Apple, cored and finely chopped, about 1 medium, peeled if desired
3 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh Parsley, flat leaf or regular
1 teaspoon dried Sage
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon dried Thyme
½ teaspoon Black Pepper

½ Cup + 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Stock
½ Cup + 2 Tablespoons Rice Milk

2 ½ Cups soft Bread Cubes, ½” size, see note
1 Cup Panko or Breadcrumbs
1 Cup Plain Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 375F and prepare muffin tins by spraying with non-stick spray.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic, and celery until well softened and starting to brown just a little, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add in the apple, herbs, seasonings and sauté a minute more.
Add the stock and soymilk, mixing well. Remove from the heat.
Add the bread cubes, crumbs, flour, and baking powder to the skillet and mix to ensure all really well combined.
Press mix equally into muffin tins and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until lightly browned and tops crisp.
Remove from tins immediately using a thin spatula or blunt knife so they stay crisp and serve warm.

I use either the recipe for Plain Bread from the soon to be published Quick and Easy Vegan Bakesale, or a sturdy store bought bread. In a pinch I have used sliced wholegrain bread and that works fine too.

Preparation time – 10 minutes
