Vegan Thanksgiving Casserole

I always buy an extra bag of vegan stuffing around the holidays to stash in my pantry for this dish. It reminds me of a casserole my mom used to make that was topped with a layer of dressing. Underneath was a creamy filling. I use veggies and a vegan protein for that layer in my casserole.
