Fermented Green Strawberries

Classic Stuffing

Our combination of aromatics, herbs, and a bit of fruit make this Classic Stuffing a meal in itself! Serve with Miso Gravy, Quick-Seared Green Beans, Roasted Broccoli, and/or Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes to take things to the next level.

Serve them alongside Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes, Miso Gravy, Blistered Green Beans, Roasted Broccoli, and Classic Stuffing. They are a friend to all side dishes.
