2 tablespoons water
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, ground sage or dried thyme
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, or chicken broth
11 cups stale bread (any type), cubed
Salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large pan over medium heat, add water, onion, carrots, celery, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. Cook, stirring from time to time until vegetables are tender (soft), about 6 to 8 minutes.
- Mix bread, cooked vegetables, broth, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Spoon into a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
- Cover with foil and bake 30 to 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes, until golden brown on top.
Note: This recipe is referred to as “dressing” since it is not being stuffed into the turkey or other bird.
