Tofurkey (a portmanteau of tofu and turkey) is faux turkey, a meat substitute in the form of a loaf or casserole of vegetarian protein, usually made from tofu (soybean protein) or seitan (wheat protein) with a stuffing made from grains or bread, flavored with a broth and seasoned with herbs and spices. Tofurky is oven-roasted or baked and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It can be homemade or purchased ready-made and frozen from multiple sources such as health food stores or specialty grocers, or ordered online and shipped in insulated packing.
UnTurkey, produced until 2006 by the now defunct Now & Zen, was one of the first ready-made tofurkey products available in the U.S.
Brands of ready-made tofurkey include Tofurky produced by Turtle Island Foods in Hood River, Oregon, the Celebration Roast produced by the Field Roast Grain Meat Co. of Seattle, Washington, and the Stuffed Holiday Roast made by Match Foods (previously called AuraPro) of St. Louis, Missouri.
