Cheryl insists on having a Tofurky a few times a year and I have always enjoyed them. I know some of you are not a fan of faux meats and if that’s you head over to this post on Vegan Slow Cooker Veggie Loaf or make my plant based Vegan Thanksgiving Casserole and Gravy.
I think that the older we get the more we crave food from out past. Being vegan means that while I won’t eat some traditional foods, I love veganizing some of those familiar flavors. A protein with stuffing, veggies and mashed potatoes can work with a few tweaks for everyone.
Even More Tofurky…
In addition to my slow cooker recipe below, be sure to check out this list of Tofurky recipes I’ve compiled. It has something for everyone. I have to admit that I love this Slow Cooker Maple Herb Tofurky recipe the best.

- Place the tofurky in your 2 to 3 quart slow cooker. Mix the sauce ingredients together and pour over the Tofurky.
