Tofurky products before but of course have heard about them as they are one of the leading vegetarian "meat" brands. They recently came out with a new line of artisan sausages that I was asked to review. I was sent their Chick’n & Apple Sausage, a Southern mainstay that is made with Hood River apples; Andouille Sausage, a Cajun favorite; and Spinach Pesto Sausage, evoking fine Italian cuisine.
I had my family over for dinner last Friday night for the first grill out of the year. I opened a package of the Andouille sausage which is Cajun flavored and had my husband grill them up. Without any spray or oil, they cooked well on the grill and did not burn at all. They had a similar texture to a hot dog which is good for vegetarians that miss meat.
One large sausage has 270 calories, 3 grams of fiber, 29 grams of protein, 12 grams of fat and 490 mg of sodium. They are higher in calories than hot dogs but are bigger in size so you only need 1. These are also good without a bun cut into coins to save more calories. Main ingredients include wheat gluten, tofu, wheat berries, poblano peppers, shoyu soy cause, garlic and other spices.
If you are a vegetarian or are looking for great vegetarian meals, you should consider trying these Tofurky artisan sausages.
