My mom has been making her legendary stuffing at every holiday and family gathering for as long as I can remember. When I asked her to share her recipe with me, she said it was in her head (uh-oh) and had never written it down (double uh-oh) but she’d be happy to tell me over the phone (yay!).

She shared her go-to ingredients along with her favourite bread to make it with – Silver Hills Ancient Grains or Squirelly bread. Side note: This is also my favourite bread to make almond butter banana toast.

I’m very happy to report, I made it and it was just as delicious as my Mom’s! Hurray! Especially because now I can share it with you. I only made a few modifications to my mom’s original recipe (can’t mess with a legendary recipe) by adding more dried herbs.

This stuffing is totally plant-based so that everyone can enjoy it. The key to good stuffing however, is good quality bread. I love Silver Hills Bakery because all of their breads are sprouted. This makes the wheat much easier to digest and less inflammatory in our system. The anti-nutrients are also eliminated so that you can easily digest all the nutrients in this bread.

No one will have a clue how healthy this stuffing is because I’ve also packed it with some hearty ingredients.

This stuffing has it all – apple, celery, onion, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. It’s fulfilling and full of gut-loving fibre! You’ll definitely want to leave room on your plate for this stuffing. It’s so incredibly flavourful, you don’t even need any gravy. I know this is a bold statement and I stand behind it!

Get the recipe:


Serves 8
*Let it sit out of the package overnight to go stale

There you have it, my mom’s Legendary Stuffing.

I hope I make you proud Ma McCarthy!
