Tofurky Italian Style Tufo Sausages – WOW!

I normally don’t title my blog posts with a “WOW!”, but this product deserves it. The full product description is Tofurky Italian-Style Tofu Sausage with Sun Dried Tomatoes”

I picked up these tofu (KSA parve/vegan) sausages on a whim at my local grocery store in their “health food” section. For the most part I picked them to just have them around for one of those days when we don’t feel like eating meet.

They come fresh packed and I put them straight on the BBQ. After a few minutes on the BBQ the casings started to crisp up and I noticed something I’ve never seen before with a tofu hot dog or sausage, some fat actually started bubbling out of the casings. I checked the ingredients and discovered that this fat was “expeller pressed canola or high oleic safflower oil” which by all account is not unhealthy and may actually be OK for you.

After cooking them evenly all around it was time to give them a taste with nothing added. This is where the WOW came from. They tasted great! For a moment I forgot they were tofu based. OK that only lasted a few seconds, but still something I didn’t expect.

The sausages were slightly spiced (not too much heat, but enough that you could taste it) with a well balanced flavor. I then shared them with my wife and she was equally impressed.

We’ve tried and still continue to buy other products from Tofurky, but haven’t been overwhelmed by them as we were with these sausages. We usually buy Tofurky products when they are on sale for the kids’ lunches. I can honestly say, we’ll be buy this product not only for us, but for when our vegan or vegetarian friends come over. I’ll be more than proud to server these tasty sausages.
