Mom’s Thanksgiving Stuffing

I have always loved my mom’s holiday stuffing. And since I discovered my food allergies, this recipe has gone through a lot of changes. Luckily, my family has made it work, and it still tastes as good as ever.

This is a bread-based stuffing recipe, baked by itself in the oven, sans turkey. We always make a lot so that there will be leftovers. It’s delicious with gravy.

Ingredients (serves about 12)

2 loaves gluten-free/vegan bread (like 2 recipes-worth of Champion Sandwich Bread rolls), ripped into bite-sized pieces

olive oil and/or vegan margarine

1 large onion, chopped

4 (or more) celery stalks, chopped

2 cans mushrooms or equivalent fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional)

2 tablespoons thyme

2 tablespoons poultry seasoning

1 tablespoon celery seed

2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

2 tablespoons gluten-free flour or tapioca starch

1 Imagine Roasted Turkey Flavored Gravy (contains turkey fat, sorry vegans!)


1. Place cut up bread pieces in a large bowl (We use a large corn pot so the ingredients can be mixed without everything falling out)

2. In a pan on the stove, saute the onion, celery and mushrooms in olive oil and/or vegan margarine. When soft add to the bread.

3. Mix Chicken broth with the flour/ Tapioca starch and heat in a small pan until thickened. Add to bread.

4. Add the seasonings and gravy to the pot.

5. Mix all ingredients.  Add more liquid if needed.

6. Place in a baking dish or two (grease if desired).  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
