Serve this tofu-turkey to a table of vegetarian guests this Christmas.
I made this for christmas and although it was a lot of work, it tasted soooo good! I definitely recommend starting early crumbling the tofu AND pulsing it in the food processor, until really smooth, then draining it. Works much, much better! My whole family tried it and couldn't believe how good it was. - 24 Jul 2008
I was very impressed with the way this turned out. I served it for Christmas to 9 meat eaters and EVERYONE said it tasted like turkey! I couldn't believe it. I have been vegetarian for 10 years, so tasting like turkey wasn't really the goal. I first boiled the tofu in some vegetarian chicken flavoured stock, then processed it in a blender, then pressed it with the weight overnight. I also left out the rosemary as I didn't have any. I cooked the tofu turkey WITH the foil for about 3 hours, reappling the glaze every 30 minutes or so. I also cooked it on parchment instead of greasing the tin, so it didn't burn. It was really good: it looked and tasted like turkey! I also recommend the vegetarian gravy to serve with this - 24 Jul 2008
This recipe is great! Very easy, especially after the first time. The meat eaters at christmas ALWAYS eat all our tofu turkey! I make two now. My children who are vegans love it too. - 24 Jul 2008
