    Roasted Tofurkey

    Thanksgiving may be the least Cruelty-Free of all holidays since its centerpiece is always a Turkey and the more people the bigger (older) the Turkey. You don’t want to break too much of tradition by skipping “Tom” altogether, so here is a animal friendly alternative. . . the Tofu Turkey (aka Tofurkey). This roasted recipe leaves the outside crispy and the inside tender, moist, and flakey– the hallmarks of a traditional Turkey roast. INGREDIENTS Tofurky Roast, thawed in fridge for at least 24 hours 1 medium-large sweet potato, scrubbed 2 carrots 8-10 fingerling potatoes 2 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tsp thyme 1/2 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp rosemary pie…

    Homestyle Stuffing

    A Thanksgiving staple that cannot be forgotten is stuffing. Even though this side-dish generally comes from inside the Turkey (adds flavor and moisture) on a Turkey-Free Thanksgiving day, you don’t have to forego this favorite. To satisfy the meat eaters, this recipe includes seasoned Tempeh “sausage” to add a meaty texture. Pro-tip: The Tempeh Sausage is a fantastic recipe by itself, feel free to grab it and use it elsewhere as a meat-free alternative. INGREDIENTS  Tempeh Sausage 16 ounces tempeh (from two 8 ounce packages) 1/4 cup water 1 tablespoon fennel seed 1 tablespoon dried basil 1.4 teaspoon smoked paprika 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes…
