What’s Thanksgiving dinner without a hearty serving of stuffing?
Growing up, I used to LOVE my mom’s stuffing, I thought she was the most talented chef in the kitchen based on this one dish, as she would deliver every year, and the flavor would always be spot on. Once I grew up, my mom shared her secret recipe with me when I aided her in Thanksgiving prep….Stove Top Stuffing…uhhh, I’ll pass!
Once going vegan, and shifting away from processed, prepackaged foods, I needed to find myself a replacement for this family ‘tradition’ we used to share. I also wanted to challenge myself and try for a gluten-free recipe as well.
My manager at my old job used to bring me gluten-free sourdough bread (infused with kale!) from Bread Srsly in San Fransisco, CA. It was the only place that you were able to get the bread (it was 2012 at the time), and I was obsessed! I hadn’t had it since she moved away that year, but I soon learned that I was able to get it shipped to me though their online shop. They only allow for minimum orders of 3 loafs, so I waited until I felt I needed this large shipment of bread, and stuffing seemed like the perfect occasion.
Once I started my online order, I was curious to see where the bread was actually sold in stores. To my surprise, I found that the bread was sold in a small shop in my town, 2 blocks from my house! What are the chances? I walked over one day before heading to class, and got my hands on this gluten-free goodness I had missed for so long.
The only thing I would say this bread lacks is the consistency of traditional sourdough bread. Not that the consistency of this one is unpleasant, but it has its own separate feel. The taste, however, isn’t much different, and is spot on from what I would say at least.
