Tofurky Thanksgiving - Vegan, Vegetarian, Meatless
What do vegans eat for Thanksgiving? What do vegetarians eat for Thanksgiving? How do you have Thanksgiving Dinner without Turkey? How to bake Tofurky? What does Tofurky taste like?
We will try to answer your Meatless, Vegan, Vegetarian Thanksgiving questions together!
Tofurky has become a Thanksgiving staple for my vegans and vegetarians, but I have never tasted it before.
Ingredients you will need to buy in addition to your Tofurky:
2 Potatoes or Yams, quartered and peeled
2 Large carrots split down the middle and cut into 2 inch pieces
1 onion, quartered and peeled
And for the Tofurky Baste:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 ½ teaspoon fresh or ground sage (optional)
How to bake a Tofurky:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).
Prepare the vegetables. Peel and quarter the onion. Peel and chop the potatoes. If you are using adult carrots, slice them down the middle and chop them as well. Be sure not to slice the vegetables too small. You want them to be hardy enough to withstand a long baking time.
Prepare the Tofurky Baste. It is simple. Just whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, and ground sage.
Remove the thawed Tofurky from the plastic. Scissors will make this easier. Place it is a bake safe pot that has a tight lid. Surround it with the vegetables and pour half of the baste on top. Bake with the lid on for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Return to pour the other half of the baste onto the Tofurky. Bake uncovered for another 10 minutes and your "bird" is complete.

My Review: For a person that usually hates meat replacers and the taste of meat, the Tofurky is actually good. I would recommend it to any vegan, vegetarian, and anyone who is looking for a Turkey alternative. I would even serve it to tofu skeptics. Great product.
Here is what the people at Turtle Island Foods, Inc. have to say about their Tofurky:
In 1995, Cosmonaut Valeriy Polyakov returned to earth after spending a record 438 days in space. We here at Turtle Island believe Polyakov came back because he wanted to get a taste of the just-introduced Tofurky Roast. The moist, delicious roast is an out-of-this-world alternative to turkey for the holidays. Whether you are a vegetarian looking for something special to serve at your gathering or a chef wanting to prepare a satisfying and nutritious centerpiece for your non-meat-eating guests, the Tofurky Roast will take you celebration to new heights.
Have a Happy Vegan, Vegetarian, Meatless Thanksgiving!
