Wow this year has really flown by. I can't believe it's nearly Thanksgiving. I say that every year and the years keep flying by even faster as I get older. This is our 3rd Vegan Thanksgiving. I can't tell you how surreal that sounds. As a "foodie" I didn't really worry about eating on holiday's. To me the main dish was not my favorite part of the meal anyway. I love the sides. My favorite has ALWAYS been Cornbread dressing. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason it can't be made vegan and on top of that, it can be oil free!

Here's what I do:
Preheat oven to 350F
Make a batch of this Easy Cornbread
Cut 5 slices of bread season with garlic powder and onion powder  (I used this bread it's our favorite store bought bread) pop it into a 350F oven to get crunchy and dry out about 15 minutes, until dry and crunchy. Time saver: If you want to leave the bread out over night to dry out, you can.
1 Onion chopped
3 Celery stalks chopped
3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1-2 teaspoon Garlic powder
1-2 teaspoon Onion powder
 2 -3 cups No chicken broth (the amount depends on how moist you like your dressing)
4 teaspoons Poultry seasonings (this is really to taste some people do not like a lot)
1 teaspoon Rubbed Sage (this is optional some do not like Sage)
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a non-stick skillet add sautéed onion and celery. I add a little water/veg broth as needed to prevent sticking. Add the garlic after the onions a celery have become slightly soft. Add a teaspoon of garlic and onion powder just to bump up the flavor. Cook it all until soft and fragrant. In a large mixing bowl crumble cooled cornbread, add cubed bread, sautéed veggies, the dried herbs (NOTE: add what you think you will like. These herbs can be overpowering for some people and I'd hate to ruin Thanksgiving!), then add about 2 cups of stock (you may need more depending on how wet/dry you like your dressing). Mix WELL you don't want a big pocket of sage. Since no eggs are in this recipe you can taste and adjust as needed. Once you have the seasonings right, add to your baking dish. I always use parchment paper for things like this just to be safe! Bake for about 40-50 minutes. This is a soft dressing not crunchy or chewy. I love a big helping of This Gravy on it. This is what MAKES Thanksgiving dinner for me!
