Every year around this time I’m reminded that a product called Tofurkey exists and that some people actually buy and consume the stuff. Tofurkey is a tofu product seasoned and sculpted to resemble turkey. The reasons for this masquerade are probably obvious, but it makes my head hurt to think about them.

So how about a new product for the Thanksgiving table? It’s turkey processed into an off-white boneless brick, packed in water, to resemble tofu. Let’s call it Faux-Fu. Now you can trick your vegetarian friends into eating turkey. Or maybe you really like the taste of turkey but prefer the look and feel of tofu. Then, Faux-Fu is fo’ you!
