The Tastiest Vegan Stuffing

 

This Tastiest Vegan Stuffing has no cholesterol and is an amazing accompaniment to your holiday dinner!

What is stuffing made of?

Typically stuffing, filling or dressing (whatever you prefer to call it) consists of breadcrumbs, celery, onion, spices, and broth.  This Tastiest Vegan Stuffing includes cornbread as well. I like the texture of mixing the breadcrumbs and corn bread. It takes a little longer to make, but its definitely worth it.

 

 

What is the difference between stuffing and dressing?

 

One major difference, stuffing is typically stuffed into a turkey or chicken and then cooked, while dressing is cooked separate.  Since this is a vegan recipe its definitely not going to go into an animal. I should call it dressing, but most people use the word stuffing, so that’s what I’m going with.

 

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs, I loved Thanksgiving dinner.  Really, who doesn’t?! I’ve always loved the sides and desserts, and the turkey was just an afterthought.  Even after losing 125 lbs, I still love the sides, especially the stuffing! The difference is I have made it lower in calorie, no cholesterol and plant based.

 

This Tastiest Vegan Stuffing is going to amaze you and your family. Its a mix of savory, satisfying and herby goodness.

    I love the idea of cornbread in this recipe. Is this meant to be eaten as a side with the other food since it’s not being stuffed into anything?

    1. Cindy Author

      Yes, I enjoy it as a side dish.
