The most popular turkey substitute to use in a vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe is a Tofurky roast. This is a 'turkey' made from wheat protein and tofu. When seasoned properly, it is a popular substitute for the real thing. You simply spread oil or margarine on the roast, sprinkle it with poultry seasoning and pepper, and follow the cooking instructions on the package.
If you are careful not to use any meat products, such as bacon or bacon grease or chicken stock, in the recipes for your side dishes, then the Tofurky may be the only substitution you will have to make. Be sure to avoid serving stuffing that is made with chicken broth, and avoid any gelatin recipes or anything containing marshmallows, which are made with gelatin. It goes without saying that you shouldn't serve any meat gravy to vegetarian guests - if you must have gravy, make it with vegetable stock.
