Tofurky: A vegetarian Thanksgiving alternative

Filed under: , , ,

If you're a vegetarian, navigating the Thanksgiving spread can be tricky. Most vegetarians I know simply fill up on meat-free side dishes, but what if you're looking for something more savory? You could always consider putting a tofurky on your table.

Tofurky is a soy-based turkey alternative that serves about three or four people. Though its creators admit that it doesn't actually taste like turkey, they say it is tasty and replaces a big slab of meat at a holiday meal. Sales of the product are up significantly this year, reflecting the growing number of vegetarian in America.

Will Tofurky replace the Thanksgiving turkey? Not in most households. The National Turkey Federation estimates that nearly 90% of households will be serving a gobbler on Thursday. But if you have a vegetarian you're fond of, serving up a Tofurky -- or another vegetarian dish -- is a great way to let them know you care.
