Vegan MoFo #7: Unturkey
Category : Uncategorized
It’s Thanksgiving today, a day of mourning for the millions of turkeys mutilated and murdered all over Canada to uphold a tradition. Turkeys are one of the friendliest creatures I’ve encountered. See my article about turkeys here.
My post today will be about making a cruelty free roast. In the old days, there were TWO kinds of boxed vegan turkey feasts you can buy at the grocery store. The Tofurky and the Unturkey. Not many vegans I know now have ever tasted the Unturkey. I must say, it was my favorite and I’ll choose Unturkey over Tofurky any day. What makes Unturkey unique and yummy is the crispy outer skin made of yuba. Sadly, Now and Zen, the company that made Unturkey has folded.
In honour of the great Unturkey, I’m making one from scratch! It took a while to find the full recipe on the internet but I managed to find it here!
Normally I like to make seitan using whole wheat flour, but I got lazy and bought vital wheat gluten flour. With the VWG you just add water and roll out the dough. It saves a lot of work.
As we speak, the Unturkey is still in the oven. I’ll do another post when it’s ready to serve!
