HOW TO SURVIVE THANKSGIVING AS A VEGAN/VEGETARIAN
It’s so simple these days. Just visit your nearest Whole Foods/Trader Joes/Kroger/Publix/Natural Market and grab a Tofurky. Yes, it’s different, and even I will admit, I was terrified of these for the longest, until I finally TRIED it. It’s so great! and has stuffing in the middle! You can slave away in the kitchen all day making a faux meat (like I used to do every year, which is great, but stressful…) or you can opt for one of these guys and bake it in the oven like a regular turkey! It’s good enough to satisfy most meat eaters. Find some recipes for some vegan glazes or marinades to coat the outside with and bam! They sell just the tofurkey, or a whole vegan ‘feast’ with stuffing side, gravy, and chocolate cake! And if you don’t like the taste of turkey in general, try out a Field Roast. They make AMAZING ‘meats’ and ‘roasts.’ Sometimes I even get a can of crescent rolls and wrap the Tofurkey/Field Roast with them and bake. Yeah, amazing.
I’m picking one of these bad boys up today and also pairing it with sides like vegan green bean casserole, gingered baked & cubed butternut squash, cranberry-mandarin relish, and a couple others I haven’t decided on yet haha. If you’re having trouble deciding on some veggie sides, I love Oh She Glows recipes and Fat Free Vegan.
all this plus Quorn - cannot wait.
