Sourdough Leek Stuffing (with dairy-free option)

A fresh and fulfilling take on classic stuffing- full of fresh leeks, celery, garlic, and herbs. This stuffing is really straightforward to prepare. It can be made dairy-free by subbing the butter for an additional 1/2 cup of Lucini Argentinian Olive Oil. It can also be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready to bake it taking one item off of your Thanksgiving to-make list ahead of time.
