Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 4 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add soy sausage crumbles and sage, and cook 7 to 9 minutes, or until sausage is browned. Drain on paper-towel-lined plate.
2.
Melt 3 tablespoons margarine in same skillet; add onions, celery, and fennel; and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and translucent. Deglaze pan with wine, and add chestnuts. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until most of liquid has evaporated.
3.
Place bread cubes in large bowl. Stir in onion and fennel mixture, then soy sausage crumbles. Mix in fresh herbs, and season with pepper. Stir in broth, adding more if necessary without making stuffing too wet.
