We finally had our Tofurky. So, this is the long awaited post about the tasty (or not) Tofurky! The reason I say it like that is from everybody I have talked to, either you like it or not. Now, I am really NOT a tofu lover…I am still trying to learn to like it. Maybe I don’t have it often enough, maybe not, who knows!
Anyhow, I finally made the Tofurky, and my family wasn’t sure what to think! I added far more veggies than the box recommended, I ALWAYS add extra veggies to recipes. Once the Tofurky was done and we sat down to eat…I did get a few snickers from the kids. My oldest daughter (21) thought it was quite tasty as did my 12 yr old daughter. I knew my 13 yr old wouldn’t even give it a chance, as well as my 8 yr old. Anyhow, Brian (my hubby) tried it and he also liked it!! I thought it was pretty good as well. It was NOT chewy as people mock about tofu. I thought it had a great balance of spices and it melded well with the tofu. In my opinion, it was a great alternative to the usual Turkey on Thanksgiving Day. Well, in my house, 4 out of 6 isn’t bad!!
Personally, I think it was unanimous that the gravy was delicious!! That will definitely be purchased again since I have had a difficult time making gravy that is vegan and yummy. Even my pickiest liked the gravy!!
So, that is my experience with the Tofurky. Don’t knock it ’til you try it!! You just might be pleasantly surprised! 🙂
