This easy vegan gluten free stuffing tastes just like microwave stuffing. This flavorful wfpb stuffing has cranberries and walnuts.
My mom has been gluten free for over a decade now, and I remember one of our first gluten-free Thanksgivings when I was a kid. We tried to make a gluten-free stuffing. It didn't go so well.
The stuffing required so much prep work and took forever in the oven. By the time we ate Thanksgiving dinner everyone was stressed out and hangry. Not so fun!
I decided to take a swing at a vegan and gluten-free stuffing this year, because no one wants a stuffing recipe that leaves you stressed on Thanksgiving day.
And I am SO pleased with the results. This wfpb and gluten-free stuffing tastes just like microwave stuffing!
Yes, there is some work involved. But the overall recipe is simple while still packing in tons of flavor. And the TEXTURE. Oh my. So soft. So fluffy. You'll be devouring this stuffing on Thanksgiving day!
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Step 2. Arrange the cubed bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast for 15-25 minutes. (If your bread came from the refrigerated or frozen section, toast closer to 25 minutes. If from the pantry section toast closer to 15 minutes.)
Step 3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, sauté the onion and celery over medium heat. Add a splash of vegetable broth if the veggies start to stick.
Step 4. Add the toasted bread, walnuts, cranberries, and spices to the pan. Toss and allow to toast for 1-2 minutes over the heat.
Step 5. Turn off the heat and pour on the remaining vegetable broth. Toss well.
Step 6. Transfer the mixture to a medium sized baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then uncover and bake 20 minutes more until the top of the stuffing is golden brown. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
Yes! This stuffing can be prepared up to two days in advance. Bake the stuffing as per the instructions. Then on the day you'd like to serve heat at 250°F for 15-20 minutes until warmed through.
Feel free to substitute an equivalent amount of regular bread - any loaf of sandwich bread or even artisan bread will work!
Store this stuffing covered in the fridge for up to a week.
Thank you God for this diet-friendly stuffing. We are grateful for your abundance. Amen.
