Savory Apple Holiday Stuffing (Vegan, WFPB)

I have been working hard in the kitchen these past few weeks to ensure that all of my holiday vegan and whole food plant based recipes are out with time to spare before Thanksgiving. I know that this time of year can be a difficult time for many when it comes to food choices. I know that there are a lot of individuals that decided to start eating a healthy vegan diet this year, who are going to be pressured to go off the course this holiday season. That is why I believe it is so important to have great plant based recipes available in order to succeed when it comes to food choices during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Stuffing has always been a big deal in my families household. I can't think of a Thanksgiving where we didn't have atleast three different variations of stuffing at the table. This year I want to help you bring the best tasting and most health promoting stuffing to your upcoming holiday get togethers. This apple stuffing is full of flavorful spices that are sure to get you in the holiday spirit. I find that the apple doesn't overpower this dish, but rather supports the other savory seasonings fantastically. I ended up baking this for around 40 minutes at 375 F to get my desired crispness, I would recommend checking at around 30 minutes to make sure you catch it at the perfect moment. If you go ahead and give this recipe a try, let me know what you think and share a picture on my facebook page of how it turned out for you.
