“Mom makes great stuffing - if you can get some! It's usually gone before it goes around the table, so I think she should double the recipe... I always get some, because she sets some aside for me (the only vegetarian) before she stuffs the bird. Feel free to add more or less of things, that's how Mom cooks, so this is an estimation based on memory.”

  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 egg, beaten with a fork (optional)
  • 14 cup grapeseed oil or 14 cup olive oil

  • 1 stalk celery, large, chopped, including leaves (Mom says they're the best part!)

  • 14 cup red pepper, chopped finely
  • 14 teaspoon summer savory
  • 12 cup apple, chopped
