New Traditional Stuffing :)

I re-created my mom's stuffing recipe after I went vegan two holidays ago, and this is what I do now! The stuffing comes out moist and delicious in the oven, and it crisps up nicely on top. Once I make my holiday gravy, I just slather that onto the stuffing, and then I'm in stuffing heaven. All this talk of stuffing is making me very hungry...

New Traditional Stuffing

(I recommend doubling or tripling this recipe if you have a lot of people coming)

1 package of your favorite vegan bread
2 c. onion, chopped well

2 c. celery, chopped well

3 tbsp Earth Balance Margarine

4 servings EnerG Egg Replacer

(mixed with water according to directions on the package)

3 tbsp. Poultry Seasoning

2-3 c. Really good Vegetable Broth or Stock

More Poultry Seasoning to taste

Salt to taste



Place margarine in a medium-sized pan on medium heat. Once it melts, add onions, celery, poultry seasoning, and salt. Stir occasionally and cook for 5-7 minutes. While vegetables are cooking, rip up bread into small chunks and place in a casserole dish. Once vegetables are done cooking, pour them onto bread and mix well. Slowly pour egg replacer over everything, and mix well. Add enough broth to moisten the mixture. Place in a 350 degree oven for about 35-45 minutes, or until the top of the stuffing has browned nicely.



Remember - taste your mixture before putting it in the oven to make sure it has enough Poultry Seasoning.



Variation: Vegan Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Based on the same recipe as the Traditional Stuffing, but added to the mix will be sliced apples and crumbled, browned Gimme Lean sausage (this is a vegan sausage that can be found in Whole Foods and most health food stores). To make the sausage crumbles, just add some oil to a pan, heat to medium, and crumble Gimme Lean into pan and cook until nicely browned. Add whatever spices you want to add extra flavor.

That looks good. Thanks for sharing!

Do you know of a good vegetarian gravy recipe?

My pleasure, and I do have a gravy recipe!

What I do is use a marinade from another recipe for the base of the gravy - it's a marinade from a recipe called "Bryanna's Breast of Tofu" (funny name, I know!) by Bryanna Clark Grogan - an amazing southern vegan domestic goddess! Just google her to find her website - her holiday recipes are so delicious, and I've loved every one I've made.

Her marinade is:

1 and 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
2 teaspoons dried sage, crumbled (or 2 T. fresh, chopped)
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (or 1/2 T. fresh)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1/2 T. fresh, chopped)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

And here's what I do with it:

I take Bryanna's marinade, place it in a small pot on medium heat, and I add a few tablespoons of Earth Balance Margarine and stir occasionally. Once the margarine dissolves, I mix a few tablespoons of flour and water together to make a paste, and I add that to the marinade (you can also use cornstarch). I stir it slowly until it reaches a thickness level I like. Add more flour/water paste if you want it thicker.

If you're sodium sensitive, you can just use less soy sauce or a reduced-sodium soy sauce.

If you're gluten sensitive, you can by wheat-free soy sauce and use cornstarch instead of flour to thicken the gravy.

Also, if any of the food items sound unfamiliar, let me know and I can decode them for you. I know that when I first started cooking vegan, I had NO idea what items like nutritional yeast were, but now I'm well-versed on the stuff and love it!

Thanks and yes I am actually allergic to wheat/gluten so that helps to have an alternative. It's a drag that my system is sensitive to so many foods! I get sick too easy and just have to be careful! My mother who is near 70 can eat just about anything and is in very good health! I wish I took after her. =)

I do buy nutritional yeast flakes at Whole Foods from time to time.

Thanks for the recipe!

Glad to help! I don't have a gluten sensitivity, but every now and then, I like to go a day without eating it. It's tough, since it's in so many foods and dishes!
