Fun With Tofurky

Even though I stopped eating meat, I NEVER thought I would eat Tofurky. It just sounded too weird. But one day, I decided to try it out. I do not make a habit of eating fake meats, because I don't think it is good to consume them regularly,  but I figured - I like to be adventurous with food, so I would give it a try. I got myself the Tofurky Italian Sausage. 

On the package was the sausage sliced up and served over pasta and sauce, so I decided to give that a try (see my picture above). It surprisingly came out well! I served it with some steamed kale and cauliflower and it went really well together. The sausages were a little spicy, but other than that, I actually liked it. I suggest following the instructions on the package about how to prepare the sausage. Here is my easy recipe for the sauce:

3 Tofurky sausages, sliced on the diagonal in chunks
olive oil
1 yellow onion, half moon sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 yellow crookneck squash, half moon sliced
1 jar of Eden Organic Spaghetti Sauce
sea salt
  1. Saute the Tofurky in some olive oil in a pan for a few minutes on medium heat on each side, then set aside on a plate.
  2. Saute onions and garlic for 4 minutes. Then toss in the squash, and saute. Let cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the spaghetti sauce over the cooking vegetables and add the cooked sausage. Bring to a simmer and cover.
  4. Let sauce, vegetables and sausage cook for 12 minutes, then taste and add salt as needed.
  5. Serve over brown rice spaghetti or your favorite pasta. Maybe add some extra fun to your meal by serving with some garlic bread...
Check out and try Tofurky to give yourself some variety. Just be sure to read the ingredients on the packaging to make sure you don't buy anything with sugar/cane juice.
