Thanksgiving Stuffing with Vegan Chicken Gravy

 stuffing 2

Thanksgiving.  This simple word is made up of two words put together that are full of meaning.  Thanks giving.  Giving thanks.  What are you giving thanks for?  Who are you giving the thanks to?  I am thankful to God for blessing me in more ways that I can count.  He’s blessed me with a wonderful husband, a loving family, caring friends, a great job, and most of all, the joy of knowing Him.

Whenever I make stuffing, I can’t help but think of the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving.  They had very little on this earth, but they were deeply grateful people. I don’t think they were the type to throw away their leftovers.  No, they saved up their scraps and pieces of bread for the one big feast of the year.  Thanksgiving.  I have always been interested that one of the main entrees for this feast is really just a recipe of leftovers–leftover scraps of bread and miscellaneous vegetables.  I want to learn something from this.

Sometimes in life the simple things are the best things.  We must believe that less is more and not buy into the American lie that more is more. I read somewhere today a very true statement: It’s not what’s in our bank account that makes us wealthy, it’s what’s in our hearts.

  4. Set the rest of the water and the soymilk somewhere near your frying pan.
  5. Turn the pan onto low heat and begin to stir the gravy constantly with a whisk.
