November is Vegan Month
A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Many vegan versions of popular foods are available in the grocery store. For example you can easily find soy hot dogs, veggie burgers, soy yogurt, veggie cheese and more.
Vegans do not eat meat, eggs, dairy products, or processed foods containing these or other animal-derived ingredients like gelatin. Some vegans also avoid eating foods that are made using animal products. There is debate as to whether honey fits into a vegan diet (because it is produced by the bee).

Bake cubes of bread at 350° for 15 minutes until dried and brown. Place vegetable broth, onion, celery, apples, sage, thyme and pepper in a saucepot with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes until apples are soft. Toss with the dried bread cubes, bake at 325°, covered for 15-20 minutes. Amount of liquid can be adjusted to your preference.
