This vegan everything bagel stuffing is loaded with the classic salty, onion, and garlic flavors you love. The perfect easy holiday side!


  • 2 everything bagels
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 small red onion (diced)
  • 1 stalk celery (diced)
  • 2 tsp everything but the bagel seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dry rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp dry sage
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • Salt as needed


  1. Set oven to 350F. Take everything bagels and cut in half then cut into small cubes.
  2. Place cubed bagels onto a baking sheet spread out evenly and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine ground flax and water and stir well to combine then set aside.
  4. Place a medium size sauce pan over medium high heat. Add in oil, onions, celery and a pinch of salt. Sauté until onions have softened.
  5. Stir in minced garlic and sauté again until fragrant.
  6. To the pan add in cubed bagels, flax egg, herbs and a quarter of the vegetable broth. Stir well to combine and slowly add more vegetable broth until bagel pieces have soaked some of the broth and softened slightly. I used about 1 cup vegetable broth, but feel free to use less or more based on your preference for stuffing consistency.
  7. Scoop soaked stuffing into a greased small baking dish or large bread pan and cover with foil.
  8. Place baking dish into the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes until top is golden then remove from the oven and serve as desired.


  • To make this recipe more indulgent, feel free to add a tablespoon of butter after you’ve cooked the onions and celery.
