Are you Tofurkying to me?

Godfather! What a great film!!  Definitely classics! We have the entire collection. Not so thrilled with all the blood shed but it wouldn't be a gangster/mob movie without it!

Now I do believe one of the most known lines is "Are you talking to me!"  This is a classic line! This line sounds like what we used for lunch tomorrow. TOFURKY!!  Basically a combo of Tofu and Turkey.  Of course it's all tofu but boy does it taste like Turkey! Turkey will always be a favorite of mine; regardless that I will never eat it again. I remember the taste, smell and texture! My most favorite part of the Turkey was the dark meat (worst part for you but so good!).

Now a day's we are experimenting with a lot of different products in the Vegan section of Whole Foods, Trader Joe's etc. One of those vegan products is Deli Slices of Tofurky. This particular Tofurky is flavored "Hickory Smoked".  Believe it or not, it tastes just like that! I really enjoy it!! I have made a very delicious Tofurky sandwich on whole wheat bread with romaine lettuce, tomato slices and mustard! It's beyond delicious! Trevor has not tried it yet but will do tomorrow for lunch! An additional bonus is there are Tofurky Hickory Smoked recipes on the back of the box.

Here are the recipes:

Tofurky Roll-Ups
1 package of Tofurky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices
8 oz. vegan or dairy cream cheese
1/4 chopped red onion
1-2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
4 oz. chopped olives (optional)
Wheat tortillas

Mix cream cheese, onion, jalapenos and olives. Spread on tortillas. Cover with Tofurky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices. Roll tortillas into tube shape and cut into 1 inch pieces. Enjoy!


Tofurky Club Sandwich
Layer Tofurky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices, sliced avocado, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, sprouts, lettuce, mustard, vegan mayo  (veganaise), vegan cheese and 2 slices soy bacon on 2 pieces of toasted, whole grain bread. Enjoy!

These recipes sounds amazing and I have not tried them as of yet but if you like the Tofurky as I do; these will be just as delicious as a basic Tofurky sandwich!

Have you ever eaten Tofurky? Thoughts?
