Chef Darren MacLean’s Miso-infused stuffing

 

This recipe can be made the day before or first thing in the morning. It’s a great way to make sure there is enough for the whole family and then some.

 

Ingredients:

  •  2 cups white or yellow onions finely diced
  • 2 cups celery finely diced
  • 1/2 cup of shallots finely diced
  • 6 sprigs of thyme leaves picked and chopped
  • 2 2-inch stems of rosemary picked and chopped
  • 1 bunch of flat leaf parsely finely chopped
  • 10 leaves of sage finely diced
  • 1 large sprig of savory picked and chopped
  • 1 litre of chicken stock reduced by half
  • 2 T of white miso paste
  • 1/2 pound of butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 chopped baguettes
  • or 2 loaves of sliced bread

 

Method:

1. Chop bread into bite size pieces and leave out overnight to dry.

2. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.

3. Once melted, add celery, onions and shallots. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Cook until semi-translucent but not colored. (About 7-10 minutes.)

5. When cooked, add miso and 1/2 the herbs. Continue to simmer for 2 minutes.

6. Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer.

7. In a large bowl, pour mixture over the bread crumbs and mix thoroughly with 1/4 of the fresh herbs. (Reserve the last 1/4 of the fresh herbs for finishing.)

8. Place in a foil pan or cake pan and cover.

9. Bake for 20-30 minutes @ 350 degrees.

10. Uncover and broil on high for 1 minute to give stuffing a bit of crunch on the top.

11. Top the stuffing with the last 1/4 of the herbs and enjoy.

 

Note: Do not over-salt, as the miso contains a great deal of salt on its own. Should you need more seasoning, feel free to season with more salt…but only after adding the miso and tasting the mixture.
