Turkey Alternatives
By Barbara Card Atkinson
Intro | Soup | PETA Roast | Wild Rice

Halloween and candy, birthdays and cake - we tend to mark special days with specific foodstuffs. However, there’s no reason you have to choke down a piece of Tradition Pie; the celebration is what matters, not the food on the table. If you are pro-beast, try roast goose or glazed ham, both traditional holiday entrees. But if your ideal Thanksgiving would be more ideal without turkey, we have some fresh, fabulous suggestions.

Beastless Feast
If it’s gotta be “kind of” turkey, there’s always Tofurky, a pre-cooked tofu and wheat protein blend with a turkey-like texture and flavor offered by Turtle Island Foods Inc. and distributed by Whole Foods. You can also find the wheat-gluten free Unturkey by Now and Zen including a succulent soy skin. Both faux birds look just like roast turkey breasts, are fully cooked and have excellent reputations as authentically edible. There are, however, other ways go to. Instead of pretending you’re eating turkey when you don’t want to be eating turkey, why not drop the pretense and go for something completely different?
