Vegan MoFo Day 15: Stuffing

I love stuffing. I'm pretty sure I could eat it every single day and not get bored of it. Despite this, I tend to reserve it for the holidays and special occasions. Other people love my stuffing too, and want to know how I make it, and really, it's no big secret.

Yep. Pepperidge Farm. Accidentally vegan. I don't believe all the varieties are, however, so you should of course double check the bag before you buy it. I don't have a bag in front of me to write the exact directions, but basically, you follow the instructions on the back of the bag, except with the following changes and substitutions:

1. Use Earth Balance/Margarine instead of butter BUT
1b. Use half as much as the bag says otherwise the stuffing will get greasy
2. Sautee 2 cups of diced celery in the margarine and add that to the stuffing.
3. Use unchicken broth in place of chicken broth (or vegetable broth if that's what you've got)
3b. Use a little extra to make up for the margarine you didn't use
4. Add 1 handful of chopped parsley when you toss it all together.

Then just bake it in the oven in a baking dish. People go absolutely mad for this, and it's so easy my husband can do it!! (Possibly also cavemen)

That's my plan for Thanksgiving too! Storebought stuffing can be really fanatastic!

I love stuffing too! Everyone is always doing crazy stuff at thanksgiving but for the holiday I have to do white bread, celery, carrots, onions, and broth. Its weird because I love it but only eat it once a year!
