Orzo & Spinach Stuffing

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by James Craig

I have not made this but I think it would be a different change from the traditional cornbread stuffing we eat at Thanksgiving time. This was exported from Mastercook. I found it on Recipe Source. (enough for 8-10 lb turkey)

This dish was good and flavorful. I made it as a one-dish meal by adding cubed, browned extra firm tofu. Adding sliced celery (sauteed with the onion and garlic) would be provide additional color and crunch. I used a regular yellow onion instead of green onion. Cooked chicken chunks mixed in would be good, too. I especially liked the texture and appearance of this dish.
