7. Bread-less Quinoa Butternut Squash Stuffing

This vegan quinoa butternut squash stuffing is perfect for Thanksgiving if you want a bread-less version of your favorite holiday side-dish.

It’s lighter and healthier but the best part is that it has the same great flavors of traditional Thanksgiving stuffing. Yum!

    I’m definitely using your recipe this year! Can I use convection to roast it or would it be best not to?
