You're probably thinking I went crazy on Thanksgiving this year. Well I have, it is so exciting to be able to spend the holiday with my vegetarian family members. Each year for almost than 20 years we have celebrated Thanksgiving with a Tofurky Roast. Since I haven't eaten turkey for Thanksgiving in a long time this vegetarian roast has been the centerpiece of my dining table for the vegetarians in the family. Yes I do make traditional turkey for the meat eaters. There are several different Tofurky package available, but I prefer the stuffed roast for our celebration.

A complete vegetarian Tofurky feast is available and it includes everything needed to serve a completely vegetarian meal. Since my family has always enjoyed my cooking ability, I prefer to make the side dishes myself from scratch. There is nothing like freshly prepared veggies, and gravy for my family. Since the Tofurky comes already stuffed some of my guest prefer to each it with their meal. Other like my homemade stuffing, I cook it separate from the turkey using vegetarian ingredients. My mashed potatoes are made the old-fashioned way as well. Since the kids are all married with families of their own we over 20 guests coming this year.

The holiday is certain to be fun and the food choices will be plenty. Besides all of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner food, there will be snack, fresh nuts to crack, and plenty of fresh fruits. I do this every year and I know my family appreciated the work I do for them. If you are vegetarian or have guest coming who are a Tofurky is what you need to make the food choices vegetarian. I enjoy my Tofurky and find it tasty and satisfying and completes a holiday feast for everyone to enjoy.

      I love all the Thanksgiving foods! I'll have to give Tofurky a try - I have vegetarian friends who have it every year too and they really enjoy it.

      I have never tried Tofurky before and have wondered what it tastes like. My favorite Thanksgiving food is hard to say, but if I had to pick, it would probably be the stuffing with some really good gravy on top of it.
