Wild Mushroom Stuffing (we used a Savoy Cabbage)
1.Combine Everythingnice Wild Mushroom & Barley soup mix with 2 cups water in rice cooker or in pot and simmer on
medium/low until water is absorbed and barley is tender.
2. Combine barley mixture with 2 cups of soft bread crumbs and 2 Tbsp. of melted butter.
3. Gently separate the leaves of the cabbage while leaving them attached to the stem. Once
you reach the solid middle (hard to separate) cut out the middle. Be careful to
leave the core and stem intact otherwise you end up with a casserole.
4. Spoon barley mixture into middle, wrap up inside layer of leavesand
then spoon mixture around and between the leaves as you move them back over the middle to restore to original shape.
5. Tie with butchers twine and brush the top of the cabbage lightly with oil before putting the lid on.
6. Bake in covered roasting pan with 1 cup water on bottom for 50 minutes
until cabbage is tender.
7. Serve sliced into wedges.
Note 1: This stuffing mix would also be amazing in a pumpkin. Cut off top,
remove seeds, spoon mushroom, barley and bread mixture into the pumpkin. Cover
with top and roast covered in a pan with a little water.
Note 2: Can also use in a chicken or turkey and bake as per standard cooking methods for poultry.
Broccoli au Gratin
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Butter a baking dish.
3. In baking dish combine one package of everythingnice Potato & Herb soup, 2 cups of chopped broccoli, 2.5 cups of milk and 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese.
4. Top with another 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese. Bake for 35-45 minutes until texture of broccoli suits your tastes.
Note: Substitute cauliflower or use a combination of both. Toss in some leftover cooked chicken, bacon or cubed tofu to make this a one dish meal. Try a different cheese to mix it up...how about a smoked gouda...yum!
Seven Layer Dip

Layer 1: cream cheese mix
Layer 2: chili

BBQ-ed Cauliflower Steaks
1. Prepare everythingnice garlic spreadas per package instructions.
