Vegetarian Thanksgiving Dates Back to the 1900s
In the past several years, Tofurkys and Tofu Turkeys—baked tofu shaped into the form of the iconic Thanksgiving bird—have become a staple at many vegan and vegetarian dinners.
The Tofu Turkey was created by Gary Abramowitz, a chef who had been a vegetarian since 1970, as a healthier and less wasteful alternative to the on-average 30.5 pound roasters, 6 million of which, totaling 200 million pounds, end up in the garbage bins.
“I realized I had these very large pieces of tofu I could do with what I wanted. In 1990 I made one for myself. The next year, I made some for friends and a few favorite stores. Then in 1992, I began to market them. It’s very low key, no advertising, just letting the stores know they’re available. Then the Wall Street Journal did an article[…] the day before Thanksgiving and the crowd went crazy. We had calls from Israel, Moscow.”
The Unity group embraced vegetarian diets because they viewed meat as impure food, which required the body to purify itself to restore its original spiritual and eternal equilibrium. More than 100 years later, scientists are warning that meat-heavy diets are indeed detrimental to human health, and recent research touts many health and environmental benefits of plant-based diets over meat-centric ones. With the recent UN report suggesting switching from heavy meat consumption to a balanced diet with more plant-based foods, such as grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, Unity’s century-old holiday recipes perfectly fit the specs.
