Tofurky for Thanksgiving

This year, the same as last year, the spousal unit and I shared a Tofurky dinner for Thanksgiving. Tofurky is a modern miracle of vegan food, texturized vegetable protein with faux stuffing inside. However unlike many other meatless meat dishes, the tofurky is not shaped to look like a turkey, but rather is round and looks more like a ham loaf. The taste is good, taking on the flavor of what ever spices and oils are used for cooking. In this case it was some olive oil, spice mix and soy sauce. The dinner also included some vegan potato dumpling pot sticker things, peas, brussel sprouts (which I did not have), gravy, mashed potatoes and candied yams. The only non vegan part of the meal for me was the candied yams as I cannot imagine not eating them without the slightly burnt and yummy crust of marshmallows.
