So this is another one of those times that I would have been perfectly happy to find just the right already vegan recipe for stuffing on the internet. I needed a recipe that both used my prepackaged stuffing & the nice green apples that I wanted in it. Basically a recipe to duplicate my mom’s yummy thanksgiving one, that no one got to eat this year. Turns out when I asked her for the recipe, she said she uses the one on the bag! (this is a theme in our long standing thanksgiving staples. if they ever change the labeling on her favorite brands they will be lost to our family forever.) Here is my version below! : )
Ty’s Vegan Herb & Apple Stuffing
1 10 oz package of herb stuffing
1/2 stick of vegan butter
2 c. yellow onion, diced
1.5 c. celery, diced
2 granny smith apples, unpeeled, cored and diced
2 tsp. dried parsley (or 2 tbsp. fresh)
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary (or 1.5 tsp. fresh, minced)
pinch of thyme
1.5 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1.5 c. veg stock
1/2 c. raisins, optional
1. Preheat oven to 325*F. Prepare a 3 qt baking dish.
2. Heat butter in a large skillet to medium heat and saute onion, celery, and apples for 10 minutes, or until softened.
3. Add parsley, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper, stuffing and stock. Mix well and add more broth if necessary.
4. Transfer to prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
