It’s the time of year for hearty roasts (vegetarian ones, too), with all the trimmings. Time to take a closer look at our lovely range of stuffings!
We stock a number of organic and gluten-free stuffing mixes. We have:
- Sage & Onion stuffing mix, from Hale & Hearty. Made up of rice flakes and flour, with breadcrumbs, sage and parsley, this has an easy recipe mix on the box, which goes very well in stuffed courgettes or peppers.
- Sage & Onion stuffing mix, from Just Wholefoods: made from organic wholemeal breadcrumbs and all-natural, organic seasonings, this is another very popular stuffing mix.
- Gluten-free sage & onion stuffing mix, from Mrs Crimbles: made with rice flour, this is just what you need if you have a coeliac in the family.
- Apple & sage stuffing mix, from Just Wholefoods: a delicious, fruity, stuffing mix, which gives a little twist to the usual taste. Perfect with pork.
Stuffings can add another dimension to a vegetarian or vegan meal (try them with this lovely vegetarian gravy). They can be added as a side-dish to a meal (perhaps a nut roast, with loads of veg as well?), or genuinely used to ‘stuff’ something, such as mushrooms (if life isn’t too short), peppers, courgettes or marrows.
If you’re using these stuffings with meat, you have the perennial question of whether to actually ‘stuff’ the meat with them, or cook them on the side. There are those who love the crunchy topping of the stuffing cooked separately – and those who feel it simply doesn’t taste as good without soaking up the flavours of the meat directly. An interesting middle way is perhaps to place the stuffing tray directly underneath the roasting meat in the oven, letting the juices drip onto it…..
For those creating their own stuffing masterpieces, we also stock organic, unsweetened chestnut puree.Tags: apple & sage stuffing, chestnut puree, gluten-free stuffing, Hale & Hearty, just wholefoods, Mrs Crimbles, organic stuffing, sage & onion stuffing, stuffing, vegetarian gravy
