Vegan Thanksgiving Stuffing

Family Friendly Plant-Based Recipes

One of the biggest highlights of Thanksgiving dinner for me is the stuffing, after the mashed potatoes of course!  My favorite thing is to pile the stuffing on top of the mashed potatoes then spoon some fresh frozen sweet corn over the top of that! I like it better than gravy! But a little gravy on that would be fantastic! This vegan stuffing is not hard to make and with just a few modifications you can turn this vegan stuffing into a hearty main dish for your vegan Thanksgiving if you aren’t quite ready to show up to aunt betty’s house with a great big vegan turkey! So, whether you planning to host your own vegan Thanksgiving or if you are bringing a dish to a potluck Thanksgiving this is a great option.

What you need for to make Vegan Thanksgiving Stuffing

  • Bread or dried bread cubes – You can use whole grain bread or white bread or a mix of the two for this recipe it is completely up to you.If you do use whole grain, make sure the bread is not heavy. I tend to use the store-bought stuffing mix because it is a big time saver on an already busy day. Pepperidge Farm Onion and Sage is my favorite.
  • Vegan Butter – Use your favorite vegan butter, I love Country Crock because it’s easy to find tastes great.
  • Onions and Celery – Yes you must use these they give all of the flavor to this recipe. But you won’t see them so if somebody doesn’t like onions and celery they won’t know they are there!
  • Seasonings – you will need some sage, onion powder, and celery seed as well as salt.

How to make vegan thanksgiving stuffing a main dish

If you have some vegan turkey roast, homemade seitan, or a commercial vegan turkey roll, simply brown it in a skillet and add it to the stuffing. It is great option to limit the processed vegan meat but make a hearty vegan thanksgiving main dish everyone will love.

Stuffing as a meal

Planning for your Vegan Thanksgiving Meal

Can vegan stuffing be made ahead?

Yes, it can be made ahead! I prefer to make it the day of but sometimes our family makes it ahead and freezes it.  I think the best idea is to have it all prepped ahead and partially cooked then on Thanksgiving Day you can finish it in a short time.
