Traditional stuffing contains butter and some kind of broth — usually chicken or turkey. So unless specified otherwise, you should always assume that homemade stuffing is not vegan-friendly.
But can boxed stuffing be free from animal-derived ingredients? Not always, but if you know where to look, there are definitely some vegan stuffing brands in your grocery store!
This list contains vegan boxed stuffing brands, meaning the package contains many of the ingredients you’ll need, and if you have to add any of your own ingredients, it’ll be just a few fresh things, like vegetables, vegetable broth, or vegan butter. This list won’t contain vegan stuffing seasoning mix, which just contains spices that you add to a homemade stuffing.
Manufacturers can change the ingredients at any time, so always check the ingredients list before buying!
Two varieties of Olivia’s Stuffing are vegan-friendly and labeled vegan on the box! Olivia’s brand (which is featured in our Vegan Croutons List) is very transparent about its ingredients and clearly labels all ingredients instead of using vague descriptions like “spices.”
The gluten-free version of Olivia’s stuffing is not vegan-friendly as it contains honey and egg whites.
Olivia’s Vegan Stuffing Mixes:
- Traditional Stuffing
- Cornbread Stuffing
365 Everyday Value Stuffing
If you want a healthier boxed stuffing option made specifically for vegans, head over to Whole Foods and pick up a bag of 365 Everyday Value Organic Multigrain Stuffing Mix! Other varieties of 365 stuffing mix are not vegan-friendly.
This stuffing mix is a seasonal item and may only be available during the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas).
Every ingredient in this stuffing is organic, and this brand has fewer calories and a much cleaner label than many other name brands. This Vegan Whole Foods Stuffing also has a recipe on the back that is plant-based — no need to substitute!

Arrowhead Mills Stuffing
Arrowhead Mills stuffing is another healthier option because of its cleaner label (no weird chemicals, preservatives, or dyes). There are no animal-derived ingredients in the package and because the sugar is organic, it is not processed with bone char.
When you substitute vegetable broth instead of chicken broth when making this vegan stuffing mix, you can make a completely plant-based side dish perfect for Thanksgiving!
This is a seasonal item and is only available around the holiday season.
Where to Buy: You can buy Arrowhead Mills stuffing at select grocery stores including Walmart and Publix.

Pepperidge Farm Stuffing
Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix varieties are all plant-based, but they cannot be guaranteed vegan because they contain non-organic sugar. But these are easy-to-find stuffing packages that are perfect for someone following a plant-based diet.
You will obviously need to veganize the instructions on the back of the box so that the stuffing will be vegan friendly, but they are common sense swaps. Instead of butter, use vegan butter. And instead of chicken broth, use vegetable broth!
Where to Buy: You can buy Pepperidge Farm plant-based stuffing products at most major grocery stores, including Walmart, Publix, and Kroger. If you’re looking for a specific variety, be sure to check out their product locator.

Mrs. Cubbison’s Stuffing
Mrs. Cubbison’s stuffing mix packages are not certified vegan, but the ingredient lists do not show any animal-derived ingredients.

Where to Buy: You can buy Mrs. Cubbinson’s products at select grocery stores including Walmart, Target, and Safeway.
