Everybody has their favorite holiday dish, and mine has to be savory veggie-filled stuffing! My husband grew up with sausage in his stuffing, while my family grew up making several small stuffing casseroles to please everybody at the table. Over the years, I have stopped eating much meat so I had to get creative this year.
Pure Farmland recently released a line of plant-based products, including meatballs, protein starters, and breakfast patties. Not only are they delicious, they're also dairy-free, gluten-free, made with natural flavors, and a great source of protein.
For our vegan sausage stuffing, I found the protein starters in the refrigerated area in Kroger. Shop the recipe here to directly add the ingredients to your shopping cart!
Ultimate Thanksgiving Side Dish
For the past few years, I have really enjoyed helping prepare holiday dinners! With so many dietary restrictions myself, it's almost easier. Typically, I prepare all of the appetizers and side dishes! Stuffing is my absolute favorite, and just thinking about the smell of it brings a smile to my face.
I'm instantly reminded of all the times I've enjoyed the dish with my family. Some might hate the idea of waking up at the crack of dawn to start preparing Thanksgiving, but I live for it! I can't wait to watch the parade and dog show as I put the final touches on each dish.
I love seeing everybody's take on their holiday stuffing! Each family has their own little tweaks and methods, so please share with me in the comments what your holiday dinner table looks like. Do you help prepare the food or are you the professional taste tester?

This recipe doesn't take long at all to come together, so it's best to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go before starting.

How to Make Vegan Sausage Stuffing
I like making this one-pan meal in a cast iron skillet because it can easily be reheated in the oven if needed. Start by sautéing the onion, celery, and garlic in melted dairy-free butter. Then, add the protein starters to the skillet and let cook. As it cooks, start breaking it apart using a wooden spoon. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper, and cook until moisture has evaporated and product browns—about 10 - 12 minutes.
Once cooked, stir in stuffing mix, fresh parsley, and vegetable broth ½ cup at a time. Stir to combine and let simmer until broth disappears. Repeat until you run out of broth or until stuffing is evenly moistened. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes, then fluff and serve warm.
