Healthy Recipe for the Holidays:

1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms (optional)
5 cups cooked brown rice
2 tablespoons green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 cup roasted chestnuts, pine nuts or cashews
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon tarragon
1 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1-2 eggs, to moisten

Sauté onions and mushrooms in butter. Add to cooked rice. Add chopped green pepper, celery, nuts and seasoning. Mix well. Add enough eggs or other liquid to moisten well. Lightly pack the cavity of thawed turkey and roast about 20 min. per pound for up to 6 pounds, or 15 min. per pound for larger turkey, in a slow (300°) oven. Baste frequently or cover with cloth soaked in oil to prevent burning.

For vegetarians: follow above instructions. Then place dressing in buttered casserole dish and bake, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes at 350°. Remove cover during last 10 minutes of baking.
