I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  This is one of the dishes my family ate.  It’s a very nice replacement for traditional stuffing but can also be a hearty entree.

This is a great dish to take to parties.  If you have far to go or it will be hours before you eat, I would do the last 1 hour of baking at your destination if possible.


  • 1 1/2 pounds butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/3 pound rye bread, stale, cubed
  • 2/3 pound sourdough bread, stale, cubed (cube the breads the night before and leave them set out on the counter to dry)
  • 4 cups mushroom broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 1/2 cup flat parsley, chopped


  1. Heat a nonstick pan on high heat.  When it is good and hot (hot is important since I don’t want to use oil) add several tablespoons of water, then quickly add onions, garlic, mushrooms and celery.  Cook until all is soft and lightly browned.
  2. Transfer to a 9 by 13 inch backing dish.  Add bread cubes, cooked squash, broth and parsley.  Gently combine
  3. Bake at 350 until warm in the center and the top is slightly crusty, about 1 hour.

Serve topped with your favorite vegan gravy.


  • Not a fan of Rye bread… use all Sourdough.
  • Instead of gravy, go for a different taste and drizzle with pure maple syrup.

About Dr. Tina

Hi, I am a 55-year-old Traditional Naturopath & Nutritionist who is passionate about health. After all, without health what do we have? We all have one life to live and why not live that life to the fullest. We are all going to age and we are all going to die. I am concerned with how we live and how we age. Existing is not an option for me and it should not be for you. I want to thrive. I want to feel vibrant and full of energy every day. There is no reason why we should be limited in the things we do because of our age, if we care for our precious health. When we are plagued by illness or even annoyed my minor symptoms of dis-ease we are not thriving. I know that our bodies can heal themselves. Sometimes they just need a little help from nature.

    I’m not a fan of mushrooms, is there a good substitute for those by chance? Or could I just omit that part altogether? Thanks!
