Tofu Turkey is a great protein dish for holiday dinners and leftover sandwiches. It's the marinade that really gives flavor so spice it up with your favorite herbs!
Mash tofus together. Line an 11 inch colander with a single layer of moistened cheesecloth or thin cotton cloth. Transfer tofu to a colander, press tofu to flatten and fold edges of cheesecloth over it. Place a cake tin or other flat object over the surface of the tofu and weigh it down with a heavy object (about 5 lbs) to press the liquid from the tofu.
After the tofu has drained for 1 hour, hollow out to within 1 inch of the colander. Fill the cavity with your favorite stuffing. Pack in stuffing then cover with the remaining tofu. Pat down so surface is flat and firm.
Oil a roast or turkey pan, place pan over colander, and flip over so that flat surface of filled tofu faces down. Remove cheesecloth.
Mix remaining ingredients to use as a basting liquid.
Baste tofu with liquid. Bake covered at 400 degrees F for 1 hour. Remove cover, baste, and return to oven and back uncovered until top becomes golden brown, about one hour more. Baste again at least once during remaining cooking time.
Optional add ins are thyme, garlic, oregano, paprika, or nutritional yeast.
