Sausage and Cherry Holiday Stuffing

I have been known to cook a holiday dinner in the off season. Mashed potatoes, stuffing and vegan roast are as delicious in July as any other time of year. I am actually eating leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes as I write this at 9:30 pm. Hey, I’m vegan, cut me some slack. I can’t do everything healthy. Anyways, stuffing is one of those genius foods that I don’t know what I would do without. This specific version was one part classic mom’s recipe one part whatever was in my fridge when I whipped up a vegan Thanksgiving in 40 minutes. Yes I did that. Give this recipe a go for your next holiday gathering. Or tomorrow. That is what I would do.

3 celery stalks, sliced

1 small yellow onion, diced

1 vegan sausage, sliced then quartered (I used Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage)

5 pieces of whole grain bread, torn into small pieces (the loaf I used was full of seeds which worked really well in stuffing)

1 1/2 c. veggie broth

2 tbsp. roast chicken seasoning mix, I used President’s Choice

1/4 c. dried cherries

Preheat the oven to 400°F

Heat a splash of olive oil in a medium sized frying pan. Saute the celery and onion until both have almost completely softened. Add in the vegan sausage pieces and cook until browned.

In a medium sized bowl mix all of the ingredients until will combined. Pour the stuffing into a loaf pan and pop into the oven for 20 minutes.

Enjoy smothered in mushroom gravy alongside your favourite holiday foods.
