While my family definitely considers ourselves to be omnivores, we have been incorporating more plant-based foods and recipes into our diet for the purpose of lowering our environmental impact. I have to admit that it’s been fun to adapt recipes with plant-based products and substitutes (see more of my vegan recipes here, and you’ll be seeing more to come). That being said, it’s not always a stretch to adapt recipes to be vegan. Today’s recipe is a great example. This vegan gluten-free stuffing is better than the boxed stuff and very easy to make! Whether your guests are vegan, gluten-free, both, or neither, this stuffing will please the whole crowd! Pin this one for your gluten-free or vegan holiday recipe planning, or just include it on your Thanksgiving menu if you want to swap in a sustainable vegan gluten-free stuffing recipe.

How to make vegan gluten-free stuffing

To make this vegan gluten-free stuffing, start by prepping your vegan and gluten-free bread (for vegan bread, look for keywords like “plant-based” and “egg-free;” one of my favorite choices is Little Northern Bakehouse affiliate link, and I use the whole 16 oz. loaf for this recipe). Cut the bread into 1/4″ – 1/2″ cubes (depending on the size you like).

Spread bread cubes out onto two baking sheets, then bake in the preheated oven on 350 degrees until the bread cubes are dry and lightly toasted. This will take about 10 minutes, but note that smaller cubes may toast more quickly, so keep an eye on them if you are going for the 1/4″ size. After toasting, transfer bread to a large mixing bowl.

Time-saving tip: You can toast the bread in advance in order to save time the day you are serving the stuffing.

Melt vegan butter (I like Earth Balance® affiliate link, as it seems to cook exactly like butter in situations like this) in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion and sauté until the vegetables are softened but the celery still has a bit of snap (about five minutes).

Season with parsley, sage, thyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper, rosemary, and marjoram, then cook and stir for one more minute.
