Giving Thanks for Vegan Turkey Options

November 22, 2010By 18 Comments

I’ve been vegan for almost 11 years, and it makes me giddy to know that there are soooo many faux turkey options popping up at local grocery stores everywhere.

Today I want to briefly showcase what I’ll be gorging on this Thursday… The Tofurky Feast ($24.99). It was hard to choose which turkey substitute to go with (sine there are so many different vegan versions out there), but I have to be honest, the fact that this feast comes with an organic chocolate cake from Amy’s Kitchen was definitely a selling point. :P It also doesn’t hurt that this year’s Tofurky is 20% larger usual (and believe me, I’m saving room in my gullet especially for this; I have a designated expandable Tofurky compartment, for realsies).

So, what all comes in this glorious Tofurky box you ask?

  • One Stuffed Tofurky Roast
  • Savory Giblet Gravy
  • Tofurky Jurky Wishstix
  • Organic Chocolate Cake from Amy’s Kitchen
  • Coupons from Turtle Island, Amy’s Kitchen, and Sweet & Sara

Yes, please! Fyi, this box serves 6 (unless you’re dedicated to heffin’ out like I am). ;)

    Why would you want to buy processed tofurkey when you can make it yourself? I even started making my own tofu!

    I can never understand why vegans/vegetarians need to eat fake meat. Wouldn’t it be better to eat a sustainable locally grown humanely processed REAL turkey? That’s what we’re having!

    • Jennifer says:

      For those that choose to eat meat, I think that would be a great decision to make. Being actively aware of where your food is coming from is a great power to have that many fail to take part in. It’s not necessarily a “need” to eat fake meat. For some, it may just be a comfort sort of issue, something that resembles the familiar items we used to eat prior to becoming vegan, only now cruelty free! For others, it is just a filler (eating only vegetables in their natural form can get a little boring). For me, it’s a little of both. Some fake meat is incredibly delicious, and my carnivore friends have even started buying certain fake meat items just because it tastes THAT GOOD, and it’s a healthy alternative. Imagine being able to inhale your Thanksgiving dinner and know that it’s 100% cholesterol free (since cholesterol only comes from animal fats). No artery clogging goin’ on there! It’s nice to be able to spice up our plate a little, have more options and textures.

    I can’t tolerate wheat gluten, so I’ll be making my own “turkey-flavored tofu” out of traditional poultry seasoning and baked tofu. Can’t wait to eat it! =D

    <3 Tofurky!

  8. Camila says:

    I envy you, where I live there’s no such thing. Finding regular tofu is a struggle, and there’s only one place where I can buy vegan “ham”, and it’s not even that good. On the bright side, I learned to make my on stuff =D Vegan cheese, faux meats, sausages, etc. I do hope the vegan market will expand though, I think it’s a matter of time.

    • Sunny says:

      Camila, where do you live? Wow, you make your own vegan meats and cheeses? That’s AMAZING!!! You should seriously start a recipe blog. :D

      • Camila says:

        I live in Chile (but I’m Brazilian), the vegan market here is still very very small, luckly I do love to cook so learning to make all this new stuff has been more of a cool challenge then a burden. I bought some american vegan cookbooks and read a lot of vegan blogs.

        I found your blog while looking for vegan cosmetics, and I loved your reviews (even though the only vegan products I can find here are Lush and Organic Care-from Natures Organics). I have no idea what make up to buy! =O

    I almost keeled over when I found out they added Amy’s cake to the Tofurkey Feast but then I added it up and found out it isn’t worth it. They removed the potato dumplings and replaced it with Amy’s cake. I’ve bought Amy’s cake and it is beyond good.
    The Tofurkey feast cost about $20. Just a Tofurkey with the gravy is about $10. An Amy’s cake is about $5. So, if you buy the Tofurkey and Amy’s cake seperately you save $5. The only thing you don’t get is the wishsticks which are not worth $5. If they kept the potato dumplings and added the cake the feast would be worth it.
    Just a little budget info.

    • Sunny says:

      Hey Kriss! Thank you for breaking it down! Seriously, I’m always looking for ways to save, and this is great! I need a “like” button for comments on here. :)

  10. Hi Sunny! Thanks for the heads-up on the new Tofurky Feast. Nice that they added a dessert this year — yum. I love the Tufurky loaves, especially the gravy. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Check out our sites sometime: http://www.chinaberry.com/ , http://www.isabellacatalog.com/ and http://www.jakeandella.com/.
