Hosting Thanksgiving can be stressful, especially when you hear a vegetarian will be joining you. Turkey is out of the picture and you can’t just let them eat the side dishes. Large grocery stores stock an interesting option- the tofurky. Don’t let this fool you though, tofurky sucks! Tofu isn’t tasteless and in fact can be pretty gross. Tofurky’s are a mass of poorly flavored tofu with a very dry texture. Thankfully there are some tricks to making the most out of your store bought tofurky. The key is to baste it with a delicious sauce. Every 15 minutes, spoon over the juices from the bottom of the pan. That will help the faux bird stay moist. Alternatively you can make your tofurky yourself and control the flavors and textures. We found the 5 most delicious tofurky recipes that will have even meat eaters asking for seconds.
