Christmas Stuffing Crumble

I've never been much of a stuffing person, my memories of it were always soggy, fatty, over seasoned mush that came with roast chickens... not exactly appetising. However since stuffing is so well loved I thought I would appropriate it into a delicious savoury crumble side dish to say Happy Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful day x
Ok, back to the food. This holiday stuffing crumble is a delicious side or stand alone meal if you are so inclined. I'm sure it would make a delicious stuffing for seitan but you'll have to test that and let me know. This dish is packed with holiday flavours, the smoked tofu and mushrooms bring a depth of flavour while the herbs keep it light and fresh while being a carby satisfying concoction.

Christmas Stuffing Crumble 
This dish is a much better version of my distant memories of stuffing, I love it and even the fussy vegetable hating husband enjoyed this one so I know it must be good! remember, if there's a certain ingredient you don't like, just change or omit it.
