My Thanksgiving was about family, food and Tofurky!
I always say going vegan doesn’t mean giving up great food. It does, however, mean giving up some traditions- like turkey and stuffing on Thanksgiving. I haven’t had the traditional Thanksgiving meal in ten years and I’ve come to look at Thanksgiving dinner as a “whatever side dishes don’t have animal products” meal. I was excited received a coupon to try out the Tofurky Vegetarian Feast and couldn’t believe how much it meant to have a traditional meal to look forward to— that was vegan!
The frozen box comes with the stuffed Tofurky, gravy, wishbones and an Amy’s organic, vegan chocolate cake!
It was fun to pull apart wishbones that didn’t come from a bird’s intestines!
Everything in the box was already made and just required some defrosting, preparing and baking. It was pretty simple.
Maybe we should call this the blogger’s Thanksgiving because I also tried Tasteful Selection’s Purple Passion and Sunrise Medley Potatoes, which were sent to me to review.
First off, how cute are these potatoes!? I combined the bags and boiled for a few minutes. One plus: these babies cook FAST!
While the potatoes cooked I sauteed an onion in olive oil with Frontier Pepper Fusion. It is black peppercorns with chipotle. I immediately oooh-ed and ahhh-ed at the aroma of this spice!
The spice was incredible and really flavorful. The one thing I’d change is the little plastic lid. It is so thin that it almost got thrown out a few times!
Along with a little garlic I baked the potatoes (halved) and onions.
I enjoyed a salad, veggies, potatoes and the stuffed Tofurky. I only photographed plate #1 but I can guarantee I had more Tofurky!
The Tofurky was SO GOOD! I had family try bites of it and they couldn’t believe how genuine it tasted. Comments of its yummy flavor and texture filled the kitchen. I usually stick with foods with less ingredients, but I will certainly buy a Tofurky again. It allowed me to fit in with the rest of the turkey-themed table and it was unbelievably tasty.
The potatoes were soft and flavorful. I loved the slightly nutty flavor and how easy they were to cook and eat.
I had Amy’s cake, too, but forgot to photograph it. Yeah, it was tasty
