Hi everyone!

I’m so happy to be sharing this Vegetarian Stuffing recipe with you today.  It is one of my tried and true recipes… one that I make for my family every year.  They have come to love and look forward to it as much as I do.

This dish truly comes from the heart.

You see I adore Thanksgiving.  But the turkey is not the star of the show for me.  Being a pescatarian <—vegetarian who eats seafood and fish, this Vegetarian Stuffing recipe is actually my true Thanksgiving food love.

It is the star of my meal.

When you have ingredients like this, why do you need to add meat?

This vegetarian stuffing recipe starts off with cubed French bread.

Next add fresh sage and dried cranberries to pan.

Isn’t it pretty?

Then chop all sorts of vegetable goodness to add flavor.  See the apples in there??!!!!

The vegetables get cooked in butter.

Real butter.

It is Thanksgiving after all.  I eat healthy all the time, but go all out for my favorite holiday.

    Love the apples and cranberries in here, Julie! They are such a sweet and different twist on stuffing. And I love how I could easily make this gluten free by using GF sandwich-style bread instead. This will definitely be making an appearance on our dinning table during the holidays!

    I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of stuffing, but I’ll try it sometimes. 🙂 I do love that you have more color in your version than I often see, that makes it more appealing for sure!!!

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2016 at 3:45 pm - Reply

      Yes! This one is a stuffing for even stuffing haters. 🙂

    I’m not usually a fan of stuffing but this looks so good!! I might have to make this so I can have stuffing too, even if I have to smuggle it in so I don’t offend my aunt. Haha!

      Haha!!! Oh I feel ya! Everyone in my family talks about loving this!

    I’ve never made my own stuffing before! This year it sounds like we are hosting our very first Thanksgiving and this recipe makes me think I could handle some non-bag kind of action. Great Recipe Julie!

    Looks delicious! If only I made the stuffing for Thanksgiving. It isn’t something I usually eat as my aunt makes it with sausage. Maybe I will have to make myself for my family next week.

    I love vegetarian stuffing and trying out new versions every year 🙂 This one sounds really good. I love the addition of the cranberries so there are pops of sweetness with the rest of the savory ingredients.

  23. This looks great! Thanks for linking up with us again this week and bringing another fab recipe

    I’m a vegetarian and have a hard time finding stuffing recipes that actually sound/taste good! I can’t wait to try this.

    Stuffing was always one of my favorites. I never really cared for my Dad’s family recipe which he made from scratch because it had the giblets in it lol. Otherwise we always made Stove Top! I’ll have to try a homemade version like this!

    Vegetarian stuffing is actually the only way I make it. Last year I used leftover pumpkin cornbread in the mixture. Talk about delicious! I bet it would be work great with your recipe.
