Tofurkey (a portmanteau of tofu and turkey) is faux turkey – a loaf of vegetarian protein, usually made from seitan or tofu. It has become popular as a vegetarian meat alternative served at Thanksgiving and other winter holidays.
There are currently several brands of tofurkey on the public market, including Tofurky produced by Turtle Island Foods, Celebration Roast produced by the Field Roast Grain Meat Co., and the Stuffed Holiday Roast made by AuraPro.
