6 Brilliant Vegan Thanksgiving Stuffing Ideas

Just like its counterparts, cranberry sauce and gravy, stuffing is a traditional must-have on the Thanksgiving dinner table. It’s also very versatile, even in its name. Northerners call it “stuffing,” while Southerners call it “dressing.” There are some in Pennsylvania who call it “filling.” This versatile dish can be made with white bread, cornbread, or rice. Some people swear by the stuffing recipe passed down from generations, while others prefer the Stove Top pre-made ones. Still, others are adventurous and look to the web for a extraordinary stuffing idea. (We’re hoping that’s you, Green Monsters!)

Did you know? Stuffing wasn’t even a part of the first Thanksgiving feast between the Pilgrims and Native Americans in 1621. In fact, stuffing first appeared long before that, in a Roman cookbook titled “De re Coquinaria,” which translates to, “On the Subject of Cooking.” Now that you know more about this lovely Thanksgiving addition, try your hand at some of these vegan Thanksgiving stuffing ideas.

Why am I not surprised that the author/s is totally ignorant of cooking. Stuffing by definition must be cooked inside of another food. Dressing is dressing when it is cooked in pan/dish. And pilafs are pilafs you can use them for either stuffing or dressing.
