I had a wonderful opportunity to create two Thanksgiving stuffing recipes for my friends at Crazy Good Bread Company in Santa Barbara.  Last weekend we collaborated on a stuffing class at the newly opened Santa Barbara Public Market where everyone got to sample the recipes, ask questions, and have a great time gearing up for holiday cooking.

Thanks to everyone who showed up~ for those who missed it, here’s my super tasty vegan stuffing–YUMMY! For further discussion of stuffing, listen on-demand to last week’s episode of The Dish with Nancy Newcomer–I talk about the recipes, whether or not to stuff your bird, AND a little bit about gratitude. Enjoy!
