Happy Thursday! Last Thursday, was Thanksgiving.. aka the best holiday besides Christmas. Before my roommates left for their families, we had a friendsgiving (missed everything I made? Check it out here). I tried to incorporate a lot of new dishes this year, specifically vegan friendly dishes. Living in Oregon has proven to be just as easy to be a vegan as all the sterotypes say. I always try to prove people wrong when they say "vegan food is not as good" or "vegan food is gross".
So, when I tell you this vegan stuffing was AMAZING, I'm not lying. My boyfriend is one of those that doesn't like vegan food, but he ate clean off his plate.
- 1 loaf of bread (I used sourdough because that is my ish)
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 tbs vegan butter
- 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
- 3/4 cup carrots
- 3/4 cup celery
- 3 1/2 cup vegetable broth or water
- 1 flax egg (1 tbs flaxseed meal + 2 1/2 tbs water)
- 3 tbs sage
- 1 tbs parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cube your bread and soak bread overnight, if you don't you can heat it in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees
- Cook your onions, celery, and carrots in a pan until translucent (soft)
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Line a baking dish with either tinfoil or spray with cooking oil
- Add broth to the bowl with the bread and then add remaining ingredients
- Mix them all together. If the bread is too wet add more bread, if it is too dry add more broth
- Transfer the mixture to the pan and cook for 45 minutes with the top covered
- Increase the heat to 400 degrees, take off the tinfoil and let brown for 15 minutes
- Let cool before serving
This dish would be perfect, and was perfect, with sweet potato mashed potatoes. Look for that recipe next on the blog!
Until next time,
