If you’re having a large group over for Thanksgiving, chances are pretty good that one or more of your guests will be a vegetarian. Some families take the attitude, â€˜Oh well, there will be plenty of side dishes and vegetables,â€™ and don’t take any special measures.
But the truly considerate host will inquire about the guest with the special request and serve, none other than, a Tofurky roast!
We have served our vegetarian daughter a Tofurky several times on Thanksgiving and she enjoys it. A “Tofurky” is a tofu â€˜turkeyâ€™ roast that is prepared in the oven just like the bird. Check out the different varieties of Tofurky at Turtle Island Foods.
