tofurky alternatives for Thanksgiving

Want to make your feast deliciously veg-friendly in a flash? Or maybe you are planning on having a meatless Thanksgiving feast. Well either way, you may be considering bringing home a Tofurky. Now don’t get me wrong, I adore the kitschy feel and fun-delicious flavor of a vegan Tofurky (served many times at my holiday feasts – Maple Dijon coated and baked!) But just in case you aren’t a Tofurky fan (or Tofurkied out) – you are in luck! There is a wide range of options to make your feast veg-friendly sans the Tofurky. From easy tofu entrees to a store-bought celebration loaf your veg and non-veg guests will crave – give these 11 vegan entrees a look!..
