Vegan Stuffing Stuffed Peppers Recipe: Hilary's Holiday Stuffing

Vegan Stuffing Stuffed Peppers

Thanksgiving is coming so soon! I don't know about you, but every year, I always look for shortcuts to make Thanksgiving dinner easier. This year, I'm SO excited to have found out about Hilary's Holiday Stuffing. This awesome stuffing is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, and free of the most common allergens. 



A pre-made stuffing that's safe for my Little Guy is certainly hard to come by. I'm sure you feel the same way if you deal with food allergies, celiac disease or food intolerances in your family.

Little Guy tried this stuffing a few days ago and LOVED it. That's saying a lot for a 7-year old who has become a little picky!

And take a look at these whole food, wholesome and clean eating ingredients. Wow!

I'm sure there will be NO leftovers of this stuffing after Thanksgiving. BUT, if you happen to have leftovers, you can use it for yummy meals like...

This Vegan Stuffing and Veggie Buddha Bowl. Just warm up the stuffing and add some roasted veggies and fresh veggies. I don't think it even needs dressing, but you could always put on a little salad dressing or make a simple avocado crema with avocado blended with yogurt or lemon juice and a little salt or garlic.

Or you could use Hilary's Holiday Stuffing in this new recipe for Vegan Stuffing Stuffed Peppers.

It's really pretty easy. Just cut off the tops of 4 peppers and clean them out:

SunButter Caramel Apple Dip: Dairyfree and Allergy Friendly!

SunButter Caramel Apple Dip: Dairyfree and Allergy Friendly

Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays. Why? I think it's because Halloween falls during the most beautiful season, autumn, but also because there are so many fun activities for kids and adults who are kids-at-heart! And today, I have a FUN treat for you that's perfect for autumn AND Halloween! 

This SunButter Caramel Apple Dip is SO yummy...and you know it has to be dairy free, egg free, nut free and sesame free for my Little Guy!

When I told Little Guy I was making it, he said, "what's caramel"?  Well, that broke my heart a little, just realizing he's never had caramel before. So, I was even more determined to make a delicious recipe that he would love!

Here are my kiddos in action TOTALLY enjoying this treat (and actually, this is almost a healthy snack depending on the toppings you use!). Pay no attention to the Christmas shirt Little Gal picked out to wear that day. Sigh. Sometimes I have no control over outfit choices (I'm sure you parents can relate!).

Allergy-Friendly Toppings (for your dipped apples):
  • Nut free granola
  • Dairy free chocolate chips
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Safe cereal like Rice Krispies or another safe brand
  • Sprinkles
  • Crushed cookies
  • Sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • Crushed pretzels
  • Combine all apple dip ingredients in a small sauce pan
  • Heat to a boil for about 1 -2 minutes while whisking
  • The longer you heat, the thicker it will become. I've also found it becomes thicker after sitting in the fridge for a day.
