Vegan Green Bean Casserole

This vegan green bean casserole is and always will be my favorite part of a holiday dinner. I might not even care if it’s the only dish on the table. It’s creamy, the green beans give it a nice snap and the french fried onions make it crispy. Just delicious.

Gluten-Free Vegan Cranberry Stuffing

It’s not Christmas dinner without out stuffing, it’s just NOT! I think if I went to someone’s house for dinner and there was no stuffing, I’d probably just go home, which is why I always volunteer to make it. The great thing about this dish is that is gluten-free, there are a few gluten allergies in my family so I’m happy to be able to make a stuffing that everyone can enjoy.
