How to Make Vegan Stuffing

Thanksgiving: Stuffing Veganized

Thanksgiving for vegans is normally a time of questions. “What can you eat?” “What are you going to eat?” “Why?”  For me, even when I was a meat eater, Thanksgiving was all about the sides. Who does not love mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn and of course, STUFFING!    Stuffing was always a favorite.  The problem: this is normally made with chicken stock, butter, etc.  This weekend, however, I sat down with my oh-so-not-vegan Mom and she taught me the recipe while I altered with vegan friendly substitutes.   This is a stuffing recipe that is simple yet delicious, even non vegans will enjoy it.
