Easy Recipe: Thanksgiving Bowls

My motto used to be “If it didn’t get done in the microwave, it didn’t get done.” I’ve since learned to use my electric oven and its four-burner cooktop. But …

Easy Recipe: Thanksgiving Bowls

Step 1:  In a single-serving. microwave-safe bowl, line the bottom with either thin slices of turkey or, if you’re a vegetarian, a thin layer of precooked and partially mashed black beans.

Step 2:  Build the next layer with chopped celery, precooked and sliced mushrooms, and precooked diced onions.

Step 3:  For the third layer, sprinkle a thick blanket of herb stuffing (straight from the bag).

Step 4:  Dot the top layer with bits of butter, and saturate the stuffing with chicken, turkey or vegetable broth. The stuffing bits should not be swimming in broth, just drenched.

Step 5:  Microwave the bowl, uncovered, for 6 minutes and check for fluffiness. Add a little more nuke time as needed. Serve piping hot. Thanksgiving Bowls are not just for Thanksgiving. Enjoy them often throughout this fall and winter.
