As I mentioned earlier, I really enjoyed the new Tofurky Kielbasas. In the last few weeks, I also tried their Italian Sausages and Beer Brats.
We chopped up the Italian Sausages, lightly browned them and then heated them with a store-bought marinara sauce before pouring the mixture over some whole wheat pasta. The sausage tasted outstanding: nice and meaty with just enough spice, a perfect compliment to a nice, garlicky tomato sauce.
Last week, I had the Beer Brats on a roll with some organic sauerkraut (who knew such a thing was so readily available?) and Dijon mustard. Now, when I ate meat I never had bratwurst, so I can’t really judge the authenticity of the taste and texture. All I can say is that, damn, they tasted really good in that sandwich. I’m thinking I might have one tonight for dinner…
So, all-in-all, I’m a big fan of Tofurky’s new line of sausages. They’re vegan and don’t have a list of ingredients longer than your arm… and they taste good, to boot. Color me sold.
All the varieties run somewhere around $4 for a pack of four and are available from large retailers like Whole Foods or through your local health food store (remember: they love special orders!).
