This vegan cornbread stuffing recipe is built on the irresistible caramelization of delicious and cozy roasted fall vegetables.
After your butternut squash, apples, and brussels sprouts are browned to perfection, you’ll toss them with balancing savory and sweet additions: rosemary, sage, pecans, and cranberries.
It’s scrumptious on its own, but even more luscious with our vegan gravy drizzled over.
Ora Pro Tip: This recipe is quick to throw together, but it’s best if you make your vegan cornbread a few days beforehand. The key to a good stuffing is bread that is dry or slightly stale.

- 1 lb brussels sprouts, halved
- 1 gala apple, cubed
- 2 shallots, sliced thinly
- 1 cup yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup celery, diced

- 1 ½ cups vegetable broth
- 1 tsp rosemary
- 1 tsp fresh, chopped sage
- ⅓ cup dried cranberries
- ⅓ cup pecan halves
