We are having tofurky this Thanksgiving, as we have many times in the past. Why ? Well we like it, we buy tofurky slices all the time for sandwhiches...they are tasty and they provide protein in a sandwich full of veggies. In my family of origin, ,we ate turkey at Thanksgiving... when we became vegetarians we gave it up and went for tofurky instead. Among other reasons, we wanted to keep close to the (turkey) traditions of the family, but not eat meat. We wanted a protein dish. It tastes good too and makes a nice presentation, goes really well with other Thanksgiving favorites like masked potatoes.
I am mostly veggie by moral choice and actually like eating meat (I know it's gross but I like it). I do occassionally eat meat. Anyways, I LIKE the fake meat stuff. If you don't like it, don't buy it.
BTW dh was raised veggie, hates meat, and he does really love tofurky.
As for the tofurky cooking question, I'd cook it same day. It might get rubbery from the microwave. Make sure you have some veggie gravy on hand too
It is easy to cook, be sure you have basting ingredients listed on box... soy sauce, orange juice, sugar or honey...). Current instructions are for slow roast 2 hrs at 300 degrees... in years past I think it was like a n hour at 350. Keep that in mind. And foil, must cover with foil.
Enjoy, maybe some meat eaters will get to try it ?
