Vegan Apple “Sausage” Stuffing

Vegan Stuffing

Ingredients

1/2 cup margarine (or butter)
1/2 of a 14oz package Light Life Gimme Lean Meatless Veggie Sausage
1 cup onions, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup green apple, chopped
16-24oz dried bread cubes (I like a mix of bread types)
16oz vegetable broth
2 large eggs, beaten (optional)
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp Italian seasoning (or 50/50 basil/oregano)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt margarine. Add and cook “sausage”, onions, celery, and apples until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour skillet mixture over breadcrumbs and toss until well combined.
  3. Stir in veggie broth, a little at a time until the stuffing is lightly moist, but not packed together. Stir in eggs, if desired (for non-vegans who like a firmer stuffing)
  4. Combine seasonings in a small cup and stir. Sprinkle seasoning over stuffing and stir well to combine.
  5. Grease a 13×9 baking dish, spread stuffing mixture evenly in dish*. For a softer stuffing cover with aluminum foil. For a crispy brown crust dot the top with margarine and bake uncovered. Bake 30-40 minutes. Serve plain or with a side of pepper gravy. Makes 10-12 servings.

*Note – Stuffing baked in a dish can be assembled ahead of time and go directly from the fridge to the oven.

  1. I’m not a vegan so I wouldn’t mind, but I do have to point out the recipe includes eggs, which is an animal product. I would change your title to vegetarian to not upset someone who may not notice until they are about to make the dish.

    1. Thanks Mallory! The eggs we’re meant to be an optional ingredient, for regular vegetarians (like me) who might want a firmer stuffing, but obviously I forgot to note that! Thanks for catching my mistake! I’ve edited the recipe so it is now true to the vegan title 🙂
