    Hi i wanted to see if anyone has tried any mock turkey substitutes. I’ve tried Tofurkey roast but i didn’t think it was that great. I see that Gardein and and Field Roast have turkey alternatives, but i’d like to hear other peoples opinions on how good they are before i buy anything for Thanksgiving. Thanks!

    Jessye and alexblue thanks for the input. I think i will try both Gardein and Quorn roasts and see which one i like better that way i have options 😛 Thanks for the links too alex very helpful. I’ve tried other Quorn foods before and they are very good, i didn’t even know they had a mock turkey roast! My local supermarket carries both Gardein and Quorn products but not their roasts. Should i call stores to see who carries them?

    I tried the field roast and in my opinion it was disgusting but everybody is different.Last year I tried the gardein brand and it was ok.And this year I’m trying the tofurkey,but since you didn’t like that I’d suggest gardein.

    If you can find it, try Quorn’s Turk’y Roast. http://www.quorn.us/products/44/roast/
    Tastes amazingly good, especially with a little mushroom gravy or in sandwiches too! You can find local stores that sell it at http://www.quorn.com/StoreSearch/
    Or make a superyumful loafy thing instead…this one is great because it’s totally changeable…
    Vegan Roast Dinner Lentil and Mushroom Loaf with Savoury Potato Filling
    http://heathenandvegan.blogspot.com/2008/11/vegan-roast-dinner-lentil-and-mushroom.html
    It’s from Nava Atlas’s “Vegetarian Celebrations” cookbook. You can sub other veggies like yellow zucchini or beets or whatever if you don’t like mushrooms, add nuts, use different beans, etc
    Cheers!
