This post is sponsored by Calphalon to help celebrate the launch of their new expertly designed Appliances line. For this slow cooker stuffing I used their brilliant and very sleek Digital Sauté Slow Cooker, which allows you to sauté, sear, brown, and slow cook all in one pot! I’m such a fan! Calphalon’s new line of appliances includes the IntelliCrisp™ Waffle Maker (check out the Pumpkin Spice Waffles I made with it), Even Sear Multi-Grill (hello grilled veggies and mushrooms!!), Digital Sauté Slow Cooker, Auto-Speed Blender, Quartz Heat Countertop Oven, and the Special Brew Coffee Maker.
This year will mark our second 100% vegan Thanksgiving!! It’ll be a small celebration, but there will be a lot of food. And yes, I’m doing all of the cooking. The holidays are such a nostalgic and special time for me, that even if I’m not back home with family, I’ve got to make it feel like I am. I want all of the flavors of my youth––all the delicious soul food made by my Nana––only without animal products. We *must* eat smoky collard greens, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potato pie, candied yams, and stuffing. Definitely stuffing! The holidays simply are not complete without it.
