Vegan Wild Mushroom Stuffing

Vegan Wild Mushroom Stuffing

One of the best bits about the weather changing and winter coming is the re-appearance of stuffing. We can't get enough of it.

But is there anything more delicious than wild mushrooms? They are the perfect way to jazz up your Christmas meal & give a rich, savoury flavour that even your most carnivorous of friends will be coming back for more!

This is a great side to your vegan Sunday roast or Christmas feast. Delicious pieces of sourdough and crunchy hazelnuts bring texture to this tasty festive dish.

 

Recipe serves 6.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 300g wild mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1 punnet of chestnut mushrooms, chopped into small chunks
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme

  • 300g stale sourdough, cut into small squares
  • 50g chopped hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & black pepper for seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp sunflower spread
  • 1 tbsp porcini mushroom paste (can find in most large supermarkets)

Did you know that mushrooms are fantastic for our immune systems! They contain polysaccharides called beta-glucans which help to stimulate our immune system, helping us to fight off nasty bugs during the winter months!
