Author Notes: Stuffing is not just for Thanksgiving! This recipe is basically just kale, spinach, parsley and onions and incorporates just a little bit of bread crumbs to create a healthy side dish. It can be used instead of stuffing/dressing and won't stuff you! (but, it is delicious with turkey)dymnyno

Serves 8

  • 3 stalks celery, small dice
  • 1 large yellow onion, small dice
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Delicious. I had some leftover cooked wild rice that I used instead of the bread. Forgot to bake it, and loved how fresh it tasted

I love this Mary! I was trying something similar last night with a roasted pumpkin garnish. The garnish was great; the veggie hash with greens, not so much. I'm making yours the next time I harvest some greens!

You cooks in the Bay Area with veggie hash recipes are something else - like your recipes and y'all!

I was thinking of green eggs and hash...so just the hash is green in my recipe (and then I remembered that it is green eggs and ham!) Sorry, Dr Seuss!
