Much ado about stuffing

Much ado about stuffing

Here’s an easy and delicious stuffing put together literally with what we had available in our fridge.  Of course, the vegetable ingredient possibilities are endless, depending on what you have on hand.  It works very well with pork tenderloin (what we had – note that you can add apples for great flavour), or poultry.


¼ red pepper (10 calories)

1 slice whole-grain bread (110 calories)

5 mushrooms (25 calories)

2 slices onion (10 calories)

½ stalk celery (1 calorie)


  1. Finely chop vegetables and break bread into small pieces.
  2. Mix all ingredients.
  3. Add seasoning(s) of your choice (e.g. low-sodium poultry seasoning).
  4. Mix.
  5. Cut meat down centre.
  6. Add stuffing.

Makes 4 servings.
