Ingredients
  1. 5 or 6 large baking potatoes (such as russet), cooked or microwaved in their skins
  2. 1 cup unsweetened rice milk or other nondairy milk
  3. 4 average slices whole-grain bread
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 1 cup chopped onion
  6. 1 cup diced celery
  7. 1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning blend (such as Frontier or Mrs. Dash)
  8. ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Once the cooked potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them and place them in a large mixing bowl. Coarsely mash the potatoes with ½ cup of the rice milk.
  3. Cut the bread into ½-inch dice. Place them in a small mixing bowl and pour the remaining rice milk over them. Soak for several minutes.
  4. In the meantime, heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet. Add the onion and celery and sauté over low heat until the onion is lightly browned and the celery is tender.
  5. Combine the onion and celery mixture with the mashed potatoes in the large mixing bowl. Stir in the soaked bread, and seasoning mix. Season to taste with salt and lots of pepper.
  6. Pour the mixture into a well-oiled, 2-quart baking dish. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the top is a crusty golden brown

This hearty, casserole-type bread and potato stuffing need not be stuffed into anything; simply enjoy it as a side dish.
