It’s Thanksgiving, and for me, that means Tofurky®! When prepared properly, I think this product is better than most Thanksgiving turkeys and chickens, mostly because it’s never dry.
The directions on the box are pretty clear, but have a flaw common to recipes that want to sound gourmetish: a fancy ingredient. I see this all the time, especially among vegan and vegetarian fare. The glaze for basting will include soy sauce, salt, pepper, sage, and “Blackman’s Owl Switch,” an herb that grows only at the tree line in the Swiss Alps, and is only sold in the five most expensive hippie whole foods store in the nation.
To get around this annoying trap, I used Kraft Italian salad dressing. Bam!
