Stuffing is one of my favourite things, so it's silly that I only eat it at Christmas and Thanksgiving. I've decided to change that so I recently tried out these 2 recipes.
This "bread stuffing casserole" was amaaaazing. It's my perfect stuffing. I love the flavours, love the herbs, it's moist but not too wet. It has parsley, marjoram, sage, thyme, rosemary and black pepper. That perfect combination of herbs is mixed together with delicious onions, walnuts, mushrooms, celery and cranberries. And bread of course. SO good.
This stuffing from ExtraVeganZa has red onion, celery, savory, mushrooms, olives, soy sauce, walnuts and kabocha squash. It was good and I'd eat it again but I didn't love it like I loved the other stuffing. Maybe the herbs weren't quite right and I think I just prefer the traditional stuffing ingredients, as much as I love kabocha squash and olives.
Here's Abby while I'm cleaning out our pantry. (Photos to come soon!) This is the container I kept sugar in and was cleaning out to use for other things (do not need that much white sugar in my house). Anytime I'd empty a container on the floor she'd be in it immediately. She is the owner of all boxes and bags.

Bread Stuffing Casserole
Adapted from Vegan Vittles
4 cups whole grain bread cubes (I used 5 pieces of whole wheat bread)
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup boiling vegetable broth
2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, mix together the parsley, nutritional yeast flakes, salt, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, and pepper. Add the bread cubes and toss to evenly distribute. Add the walnuts, onions, mushrooms, celery, and dried cranberries, and toss well.
In a separate bowl, mix together the vegetable broth, soy sauce and olive oil. Pour this mixture over the bread cubes and toss thoroughly to mix. Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish, cover and bake for 35-45 minutes. (I baked mine for 45 but just watch yours and if it seems like it's getting too dry you can take it out earlier.)
