Combine parsley, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, leek, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper; sauté 10 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mushrooms are lightly browned. Add half of parsley mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in bell peppers. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, remaining parsley mixture, milk, egg substitute, and 3/4 cup cheese in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in mushroom mixture. Add bread; stir gently to combine. Let stand 10 minutes. Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until pudding is set and lightly browned.
This was fabulous!!!! I used a real egg and rice milk (i don't care for real milk) wish it wasn't called "pudding" when I explained it to people they were like gross until they tried it. and they loved it! Had to hide it so I actually could eat my lunch. i would say it was more of a "stuffing"
We like almost every Cooking Light recipe we try, but we didn't like this at all as written. Way too much bread to veggies, and even though I used the weight measure for the bread, it ended up having a soggy middle with the cooking time given. The roasted red peppers made it too sweet, and it needed a lot more salt. Most of it went in the trash.
This was great, and a nice savory way to use leftover bread (I used leftover whole wheat challah). I made about 2/3 the initial recipe but with the full amount of veggies. Also I used skim milk instead of the 1%. Next time I'll add some toasted pine nuts and maybe some spinach. Yum!
Wonderful savory flavor. Made the following changes; used little more parsley & thyme, but same amt rosemary; 4 C shiitake mushrooms with splash of sherry when sauteeing, fresh roasted red bell pepper; 4 fresh eggs and 5 ozs gruyere cheese. Is a perfect dish for either brunch or dinner. Next time will make it with goat cheese.
