Not only is my tasting partner trying to be vegan, but a couple of our boys and their significant others are vegetarian as well, so Thanksgiving and Christmas pose a slight problem. I serve a large number of roasted vegetables and vegetarian side dishes, but I always am looking for something to replace the turkey for vegetarians. I have done the tofurkey route with limited success. I personally don’t like the idea of a pretend turkey, so I have been looking for other alternatives. Since I have been using quinoa lately, I thought this recipe would fit in nicely with my holiday menu, especially since I am already roasting butternut quash as a side. For Thanksgiving, one of my sons girlfriend added to a recipe I had found, and I made even more changes at Christmas. This recipe is the result.
