Here's a great Thanksgiving Tofurkey cooking video by my friend Marina, with cute cat cameo, and recipe.
I have to take some credit for suggesting that apple idea, although of course I'm not the first person to think of adding apples to a roast. In fact, I'm pretty sure I first saw it done as a teenager in a scene in Liquid Sky.
How to Cook a Tofurky with Apples
1 Tofurky Roast
3-4 Sweet Apples, quartered
Baste = 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place apples, roast (baste roast) - into casserole dish and cover
Cook in oven for:
if Frozen = 2 hours 20 minutes
if Thawed = 1 hour 20 minutes
Take out of oven and turn over and re-baste
Take off lid and place in oven for another 20 minutes
Slice thin and serve or slice and pan fry (to make it extra crispy)
