Our Journey

Vegan Stuffing & Gravy

With Thanksgiving looming on the horizon, I have been concerned with foods I will be able to eat. This past year I have become a Vegetarian and my family while willing to eat some nonmeat meals still enjoy eating meat. And my extended family really thinks I am weird for not eating meat, so my dilemma starts with the fact that I would like to host Thanksgiving and I would like to have a variety of items for everyone to enjoy. Hopefully they might even try a few vegetarian/vegan dishes and realize that they are good.

I thought I would share with you the two recipes I have decided to make so far: Vegan Stuffing and Gravy!!

  • Drizzle 1 Tbsp. olive oil into the casserole dish and coat thoroughly
  • Stir until everything is well mixed
  • Add 2 cups vegetable stock, and stir until it is absorbed. Add more stock as needed so that the mixture is moist and clumping together, but not soggy
