With mushrooms, sage, fennel, and a good helping of marjoram, this stuffing is the aroma of Thanksgiving. We make this stuffing every year at the family Thanksgiving dinner. It's so good that every year we repeat it and look forward to it. I even make it at other times of the year when craving the tastes of Thanksgiving flavors.

Wherever we are in the world, my family makes every effort to be together on Thanksgiving. A few of the people in my family eat plant based and gluten free diets. This stuffing makes it possible for everyone to enjoy a great meal without issue. It's filling too even on it's own!

This stuffing or dressing is an easy recipe. The best thing about it is that it can be enjoyed with turkey or a plant based meal. It tastes great with cranberry sauce (recipes below)!

Stuffing or Dressing (for a small to medium Turkey)

Optional to buy in advance, get on Treatmo iOS App: Daddy's Gourmet Marjoram Lemon, Terre Botanicals Fennel Culinary Oil, Kamen Organic Olive Oil.

  • Four cleaned large carrots
  • Four cleaned stalks of celery
  • 1/2 a yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup of curly parsley
  • 1 cup organic hazelnuts (we purchased from Holmquist in Washington State)
  • 12 cleaned and dried crimini mushrooms 
  • 4 slices of dry bread or 1 a cup of croutons (we used wheat vegan bread)
  • 2 tsp Daddy's Gourmet Marjoram Lemon (includes red Hawaiian sea salt)
  • 2 tsp sage
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Purinton Maple Sugar
  • 2 tsp Kämen Organic Olive Oil -- it is cold pressed and tastes just like olives, it adds a really nice dimension to this
  • 2-3 drops Terre Botanicals fennel

Wash carrots, celery, and mushrooms an hour ahead. Wrap in a towel and let dry.

Puree carrots, mushrooms, celery, parsley, olive oil, fennel oil and spices in a blender. We used a Cuisinart. Puree the hazelnuts until fine. Combine the hazelnuts with your vegetable mixture into one bowl and mix well.

Stuff into your cleaned turkey when ready to cook. 

Homemade Cranberry Sauce (raw and cooked options)

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup juice from an orange
  • 1/4 cup Purinton Maple Sugar
  • Dash of salt

Blend all ingredients until pureed, add a cup of water, and puree over medium low heat for 15 minutes.  Serves 5.
