And what better way to impress than to make a delicious meal for all of your visitors! So, get excited for this Savory Bread, Rice and Mushroom Stuffing recipe which will have all of your relatives complimenting your “Top Chef” cooking abilities.
This recipe uses vegan margarine. I’m sure you could use any vegan margarine you prefer; however, I recommend Earth Balance, it never fails to give me the perfect buttery taste! For the long grain and wild rice, you can use any brand you prefer! I used Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice Original Recipe; however, the package does say “may contain milk,” so if you’re extremely sensitive to dairy, I would recommend choosing a different brand. Along the same thought, the package of savory herb stuffing that I used also says “may contain milk.” I used Brownberry Herb Seasoned Cubed Stuffing; however, if you are very sensitive to dairy, I would recommend a different brand.
Pimentos are a type of canned pepper that is orange-red in color. I’m explaining this because my daughter recently asked me what pimentos are and she is a college-aged student, so if she doesn’t know what they are, I’m assuming some of you might not either! Simply enough, I used a 4 oz jar of Dromedary Sliced Pimentos!
This recipe is incredible and sure to wow any guests you might have this Thanksgiving. You could even save the recipe and use it for your Christmas or other holiday meals!

***While Thanksgiving might be a holiday filled with friends, family, and food for some people, Thanksgiving holds a different meaning for Indigenous Americans. It is important to acknowledge the painful history of this holiday for Indigenous people in America. Thrillist recently published an article about different ways to support Indigenous communities this Thanksgiving which I will link HERE. You can find resources on different organizations to support, some Indigenous-owned businesses you can support and different resources to expand your knowledge on the history of Indigenous people in America. I recommend taking some time out of your day to look this article over and do some research of your own to learn more about Indigenous culture***
