When it comes to the meals I make for our holiday celebrations I always like to try to put together one dish that will wow all of my guests — whether they’re vegan or not. These stuffed pumpkins are super easy to make and are a guaranteed showstopper at any Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. The hearty wild rice stuffing is savory with a touch of sweetness from the cranberries, while the shiitake mushrooms add a nice meaty texture to the dish!
These adorable little pumpkins are seasoned and roasted with the rice stuffing. The pumpkins themselves are also totally edible! If you want to make this recipe even more delicious I suggest offering a mushroom gravy on the side or even adding some vegan sausage. I’ve always loved gravy over my stuffing and I think it would be the perfect accompaniment to this fancy schmancy holiday recipe after all, what are the holidays for if not being totally indulgent?
That said, this recipe is low-fat, can be made oil-free and is filled with lots of good food you ingredients that won’t put you into a food coma after eating them. I hope you and your family have a happy and delicious holiday season!
