I was scheduled for a one-hour live radio interview this week on the Dr. Don radio show that beams out of Arizona. After reading Asian Tofu, he invited me to be a guest on his program earlier this year. We had a great time laughing and chatting about making tofu, hippie tofu versus Asian tofu, and health myths about eating soy.
When his production assistant, Sandy, scheduled me for the second interview, I jokingly said that we ought to talk about Tofurky since next week will be Thanksgiving. Sandy responded that she makes tofurkey annually for her holiday meal.
While I’ve made many things from scratch and enjoy project cooking, it never occurred to me that people would make their own tofurkey. I’ve only seen them in the freezer at our local health food market. Sandy emailed me her recipe, which involved a stuffing and tofu mixture that are baked and basted in a loaf pan. Intrigued, I started thinking about how I’d make an Asian tofurkey.
