I have been on a serious Thanksgiving Day side dish kick lately. It’s like all I can think about are side dishes. Next year, I think I’m going to write a post that contains ten of my favorites to share with all of you. I’ve got some really good ones on this website. To view my collection so far, check out my Side Dish category.
I’m going to add this side to next year’s Thanksgiving post. It’s really good. Its texture is out of this world and the flavors are just perfect. I can imagine doubling or tripling up on this recipe and placing everything into a big serving bowl on the table. Everyone could reach in there and scoop out some deliciousness.
This is a vegetarian side dish. It utilizes cauliflower, carrots, celery, mushrooms, onion and some herbs and flavoring. The combination of all these vegetables really plays well together. I don’t know about you, but I am really loving cauliflower lately. It seems like it’s in everything. The sage, rosemary and parsley do the dish justice too. It all works really well together.
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 Large Sweet Onion, Chopped
2 Large Carrots, Peeled and Chopped
2 Celery Stalks, Chopped
1 Head of Cauliflower, Chopped
1 Cup of Chopped Mushrooms
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Cup Parsley, Chopped
1 Teaspoon Dried Rosemary
1 Teaspoon Ground Sage
1/2 Cup Vegetable Broth
I’d like to thank Delish for this recipe. I’ll have to add this one to the list I have of other greats that I’ve pulled from this site. Nice job Delish!
Prep the Ingredients
You definitely want to get everything prepped before doing any cooking. There are lots of veggies that need to be processed.
First, remove the stem and leaves from the cauliflower. Then, chop up the florets.
Next, chop the onion, carrots and celery.
Finally, chop up the mushrooms.
Soften the Veggies
I began preparing this dish in a large skillet, but after realizing how much content I had because of my doubling up on the ingredients, I had to switch over to a Dutch oven. For a single recipe, you can use a large skillet. Anything more, use a pot.
Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter to it and let it melt. After that, add in the onion, carrots and celery. Stir and cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables have softened.
Once that’s finished, add in the cauliflower, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for another 10 minutes. After this time, all the vegetables should be tender.
Add Herbs & Broth
Next, add the vegetable broth, the sage, rosemary and parsley to the skillet or pot. Stir these ingredients together, cover the skillet and let cook for an additional 15 minutes.
Plate & Serve
When you’re ready, divide the stuffing among bowls and serve. Enjoy!
The Final Cauliflower, Carrot, Mushroom & Celery Stuffing
We ate this stuffing last night with some cod. It was delicious. It’s great either as a base for something else or alone. If you decide to give this recipe a try, please let me know your thoughts down below in the comment section. Thanks for reading!
Have you had any one (Normal stuffing eaters) check this out yet??? The recipe sounds delicious but I’m afraid it won’t be up everyones’ alley if they are used to regular old stuffing.. Guess I could do both!`

I would definitely make both. That’s exactly what I’m doing this Thanksgiving. This recipe, while called “stuffing,” isn’t exactly like stuffing. If you haven’t settled on a more traditional stuffing yet, I highly recommend this one:
