Yeah, I'm leaning way artichokey, but Olerica thanks so much for the tip to cook wild rice before stuffing the bird with it, as that is one thing (of many) I was wondering about.  Thanks!

btw, got the turkey last night (frozen...I waited too long to place an order for a fresh, free-range one from the HFS, so I got a frozen one at the regular supermarket).  I refuse to buy a turkey shot through with phosphate solution.  For the life of me, I don't know why they do this.  Why ruin a perfectly beautiful turkey?  So, I bought a frozen kosher turkey, as they have no solution added.  I have purchased them in the past and they've been delish.  Mine is an 11.03 pounder.  My mom and I will have a lot of gorgeous leftovers in Gladware!  Even after the four pets gets their feasts!

Update:  the stuffing ingredients have been purchased (except for some broth, which I forgot and will have to get on the one more run I need to make manana or, God forbid, Wednesday).  If it turns out well, I shall post the exact recipe (or, as exact as I ever get with recipes, anyway) afterwards, but the preliminary ingredients are:

1 organic butternut squash
1 organic acorn squash
2 cans of artichoke hearts (I know, I know, I should have made fresh)
organic fresh cranberries
organic poultry seasoning (main ingredient:  sage)
organic butter
3 organic purple onions
1 organic head of garlic
About a cup of organic chicken, turkey or vegetable broth (still need to get--I know, I know, I should make that from scratch, too)
Sea salt to taste (the world ain't right without salt added)

I'm thinking, how bad could this be?  I shall cook the squashes "al dente" ahead so that I can peel the thick outside skin off and mash them up.  Everything will get mixed together and cooked in the bird, if room.  If not enough room, there will also be an extra casserole dish of stuffing.

This will be a fun experiment in grain-free living!  Hopefully, it will be delicious and Recipebase-worthy!

Quoted from lola
ezequiel bread, celery and almonds with ghee very tasty.....


I'm going to use Ezekiel bread as the base for my dressing this  year.  It would just HAVE to be good!!   Thanks, Lola for the tip. I love to stuff that turkey with dressing!!


By the way, I also find Rachel Ray's current TV program way too hyper!   I am gathering most of my recipes from the TypeBase page, recipe section.  I have quite a good collection already.

I copied and saved that one, Laura.  It sounds great.  What about some walnuts in it??

A combo of Black and Brown Rice works if you can't get Wild Rice.
Also a good candidate for Millet and Barley.

Chestnuts {roasted or boiled NOT the canned sweetened} are also good, not for Os though...

Instead of meat stock try a slightly thick mucilage of soaked Shiitake.

Our family 'secret' to Wild Rice Stuffing is some finely sliced Celery.


For the Turkey:

  • Roast  it on a bed of Basil Stems for the penultimate gravy ever...
  • You can roast in a well-buttered Paper Bag if you don't like the idea of plastic on an organic free-ranging bird.
  • Dust off the 'Cajun Injector' and fill the breast with Herbed Garlic Butter or some other liquidized concoction (especially for birds over 12# that tend to be dry no matter what you do)...
