This vegan stuffing recipe is packed with flavour, and is made even more delicious after being coated in panic and deep fried. They can be enjoyed on their own, with aioli or cranberry sauce, but I've made a simple French onion gravy here.


Dice your bread, then pop into the oven at 150 for 45 minutes or until dried out.

Chop and saute all of your veggies before adding the chopped herbs, salt, and pepper. Transfer to baking dish

Mix with the croutons and stock - I used around 300ml stock but this will depend on the bread you used. Pop into a 200 C oven for 15 minutes or until golden on top. Allow to cool and set in the fridge overnight preferably, or at least 2 hours

Slice all your onions, then sauté with olive oil and garlic until soft and jammy. Add thyme and flour, cook for a couple of minutes before deglazing with red wine and adding stock. Season with salt and pepper, and let cook for 10-15 minutes on low.

Form the cooled stuffing into balls. Toss the balls in flour slurry and panko breadcrumbs.

Deep fry in vegetable oil at 180 C until golden brown and crispy. Finish with flaky salt, and dunk in the french onion gravy. Enjoy!
