This easy vegan Thanksgiving and Christmas stuffing is choc-full of nutritious cabbage, kale, spinach, and mushrooms, and is versatile enough to be used for burgers, sausages, and a variety of other yummy dishes too!
Although I originally came up with this stuffing to go inside my stuffed seitan roast, I discovered that it makes great veggie burgers too. And sausages. And actually, it’s really good, just pan-fried, and eaten on its own!
It’s pretty versatile.
It’s really easy to make too. Just prep the veggies, stir-fry with some garlic and olive oil, and add some breadcrumbs and seasoning.
