One serving is one cup of vegetable and 1/2 a serving of fat per meal.
4 Tbsp. Kerry Gold butter
1 onion, chopped
1 organic carrots or butternut squash, peeled and chopped
2 organic celery stalks, chopped
1 small-medium head cauliflower, chopped larger than
cauliflower rice, but not chunky
1 cup chopped mushrooms
Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh organic parsley
1 to 1-1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 cup organic chicken broth
toasted chopped pecans (optional)
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion, carrot, and celery and sauté until soft, 7 to 8 minutes.
Add cauliflower and mushrooms and season with sea salt and pepper. Cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes more.
Add parsley and poultry seasoning and stir until combined. Then add chicken broth and cover, stirring occasionally. Cook until tender and liquid is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.
If you like a little bit of texture or crunch on your stuffing, top with toasted chopped pecans before serving.
