Tofurky 101

I made a Tofurky roast for the first time this year (and got their giblet gravy too). Mostly per the suggested prep, I basted it in soy/olive oil/poultry seasoning and put it in the oven with potatoes, celery, and onion.

It was moist and flavorful and definitely reminded us of turkey, though it wasn’t quite the same as real turkey. After thinking about it, I think the texture reminded me of TV dinner or school lunch turkey, though it tasted better than those. The stuffing with wild rice is the best part. The tofurky and gravy actually tasted better the next day as leftovers, though were a bit salty for me. I think last year’s Quorn turkey breast was a bit better (and a lot cheaper), if you don’t mind the fungus origin. There is a new fake turkey product out this year I wanted to try but it wasn’t available locally.

The point, of course, is I didn’t have to feel guilty for eating this guy, who I met earlier this year during a bunny rescue!
