Prepare the stuffing ingredients: Preheat the oven to 375F. Peel the apple. Cut the onions, apples and celery in 1/2 cm dices. Separate the fresh thyme leaves. Finely mince the fresh sage and dried cranberries.
Cook the vegetables: Add the oil (1 tsp, 2 tsp), salt (1 tsp, 2 tsp), onion, celery and apples to a pan on medium heat. Cook 5 minutes until the onion is translucent. Set the cooked vegetables aside in a bowl.
Heat the Italian tofurkey: In the same pan you cooked the vegetables, add the oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp), heat on medium/high heat. Add the Italian tofurky & cook about 6 minutes, stirring regularly, until the tofurky is heated through. Add the cooked vegetables, fresh thyme, sage, cranberry mustard and dried cranberries to the Italian tofurkey.
Combine the flax seed and water: In a small bowl place the ground flax seeds and warm water (1 tbsp, 2 tbsp). Combine and let sit 3 minutes until it starts to thicken.
Finish the stuffing: Add the bread cubes, water and flax seeds mixture, water (1 to 1 1/2 cup, 2 to 3 cups) to the pan. We recommend adding the last third of water in 1/4 cup or less increment to ensure the stuffing is to your desired texture. Combine between each addition of water.
Serve: Place the stuffing in a serving dish. Bake in the oven 15 to 20 minutes. To keep warm, cover with foil. Serve.
