Apple Walnut Dressing (Originally from 300 15 Minute Low-Carb Recipes)

This dressing has no grain of any kind in it, and still tastes great. Serve with a simple poultry or pork dish.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 crisp, tart apple (I use a Granny Smith because I like the flavor, but one with a red skin would look prettier)
  • 2 large stalks celery
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 cup shelled walnuts
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt or Vege-Sal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning

Start the butter melting in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.

Quarter the apple and trim out the core, whack each quarter into two pieces (making eighths), and drop them in your food processor with the S-blade in place. Whack each stalk of celery into 4-5 big chunks, and throw them in, too. Quarter the onion, peel, and throw it in, and then dump in the walnuts. Pulse the food processor until everything’s a medium consistency.

Dump this mixture, along with the mushrooms (which we’re assuming you bought already sliced – if not, just chop ‘em with everything else), into the butter in the skillet, turn the heat up to medium-high, and saute everything for a minute or two, stirring. Then cover it, and let it cook for 10 minutes, uncovering every 3 minutes or so to stir the whole thing again.

Stir in the salt and poultry seasoning, let it cook for another minute or two, and serve.
