It’s only been in the last year or so that I have given Tofurky a glance. Originally, it was out of laziness. I was in the grocery store and needed a meat substitute and didn’t feel like making a trip to another store. So I just got Tofurky. Since then they’ve started to become my go-to product for sausages, and I’ve recently expanded out to their deli meats.
Let’s start with their sausages as this is where my love began. I am a huge fan of the spinach and pesto and the kielbasa. One of my favorite things to do is to slice up a spinach and pesto and cook it until the pieces get a little charred. Then I toss it in with this couscous recipe (make it vegan by dumping in nutritional yeast at the end and leaving the Parmesan cheese out. the correct amount of nutritional yeast to use is however much you like. i like a truckload).
The other day I wandered over to the Tofurky section and decided to try a deli meat. I already had some Chao cheese so I decided I’d get the bologna style deli slices. The first thing I did when I got home was have a bite. And I thought – hey, not too bad! I might consider just walking around and eating it plain. I then proceeded to make myself a grilled (vegan) bologna and cheese sandwich for dinner. It was amazing! I left off the mustard. Needs mustard.
As I wrap this up, I want to bring your attention to the smashed chickpea sandwich from last week. I shared my thoughts over on the Veganuary FB page. Someone wrote to me about her grilled hummus sandwich. Hey, I ‘ve got hummus! I’ve always got hummus.
So I ended up spreading guacamole on bread (Wholly Guacamole), then I put hummus all over everything, added my roasted tomatoes, and grilled it. Delicious! Try that one too.
