I think the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the stuffing. Wait, no… pumpkin pie. Mmmmmm…. pumpkin pie. But second place is definitely stuffing. Ok, solid second. I’ve been trying for a while to perfect a gluten free and vegan stuffing and I think I finally got it. It’s better than Stovetop, that is for sure!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times it took to get this recipe to work. The flavor was always perfect, but it was the consistency of pudding. It took a lot of trial and error to find that perfect combination of liquid and amount of time in the oven! Whew!
I used gluten free bread for the cubes. No need to make your own bread if there is a gluten free brand that you like. One thing I found though is that whether the bread is frozen or not, you need to put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes on each side to brown it a bit. Then you can cut it up into cubes and use it for the stuffing. Gluten free bread straight out of the bag becomes a soggy mess! (lesson learned!)
If you want this recipe to be 100% vegan, you can use a vegetable stock. For me personally, I am a pesco-vegan, and also take exception to bone broth, because it is good for those with auto-immune disorders. But regardless of whatever is your favorite broth, it will still be good! I do use an egg replacer though which is super easy – mix the power with some water and voila – instant non-egg!

Love, hugs, and I think I’m in a stuffing coma!HERE
Pinning this!! I’ve been gluten intolerant since my daughter was born last year, but didn’t discover it until just before the holidays last year. So, we didn’t have time to figure out a lot of gluten free alternatives. I’m excited to try this! Stuffing is one of my favorites.

I call bullshit on your pesco-vegan. Either you are or you aren’t vegan. Exceptions make you NOT A VEGAN. Stop making up terms that contradict each other.
I know, I know. I do get slack occasionally. But I went vegan over a year ago for health reasons for my autoimmune condition and it’s helped tremendously. I still eat fish, and also honey and bone broth because all are healing foods for my conditions. But calling myself a pescohoneybonebrothvegan makes no sense LOL! People like to see titles and sometimes I go with vegan-ish too. Regardless, I hope you enjoy the vegan recipes here on the blog. Hugs, Holly
