Stuffing

From Umma Yori
My Onion, Celery and Mushroom Stuffing is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. It’s full of herbs and spices: sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano, nutmeg, bay and garlic – because everything I make must have garlic. Happy Thanksgiving and Enjoy!!

8 serving 

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
