    I love the Quorn Turk’y, however you are wrong with saying it is vegan. The ingredients clearly state Rehydrated Egg White and Milk Proteins. How is that vegan? I with it were vegan because it’s my favorite roast on the market.

    Thanks for the great list of meatless alternatives to turkey. Two other products you did not mention are Gardein’s Holiday Roast (which will feed 8) and Gardein’s Turk’y Cutlet, which would work well if there is only one vegetarian at your table.

    Ok these are all vegan. I am vegan and support the cause. But to be a vegan that gets respect, you have to be kind to all animals including the human animal. the alternitives mentioned here are really junk food. Menaing full of oil and over 50% of the calories are fat. This causes obesity, heart disease, stroke diabetes and more to the human animal. Post some real options. If you need some, I can supply them. Being vegan does not mean you eat good. Vegan diets can be worse sometimes than animal based ones. Be a Vegan and protect all animals.

    The Tofurky package you show is outdated; i.e., last year the potato dumplings were replaced by Amy’s Dark Chocolate Cake. The cake is scrumptious, the dumplings were an “acquired” taste; but I fear I was prejudiced against them from the start, since they replaced my beloved Tempeh drumstick.

    Three comments: First, thanks for listing some of the many meat alternatives out there. It’s never been easier to be vegetarian or vegan. Second, the picture associated with the regular Field Roast (which is described as garlicky and ham-like in texture) is actually the Field Roast with Hazelnut Cranberry Stuffing (with a delicious puff pastry exterior). Nothing garlicky about it. Third, all Quorn products contain egg whites, making them vegetarian, not vegan like the article states. Happy Tofurkey Day!

    First, thanks for showing other options for Thanksgiving. Second, the picture associated with the regular Field Roast is actually the Field Roast with Cranberry Hazelnut Stuffing (puff pastry exterior) and doesn’t look like the regular Field Roast (which the author suggests looks like a ham). Third, the Quorn turkey alternative is not vegan, but rather vegetarian. Quorn uses egg whites as a binding agent, therefore their products are not vegan.
