Whole Foods Vegetarian thanksgiving dishes?

there are two, a sort of faux breast and a lentil loaf thing. Anyone had them? how are they? Any other options or ideas?

  1. I saw a vegetarian turkey, frozen, at Whole Foods yesterday - right next to the Tofurky. I'm a meat eater myself, but I thought the vegetarian turkey looked much better than the god-awful Tofurky.

    I saw a recipe in a magazine lately for a mushroom/lentil loaf-type thing. Or maybe just make a few different baked dishes, like one or two stuffings, maybe a baked stuffed squash and a baked pasta dish. Oh, that brings to mind a dish that would be perfect: Butternut squash lasagna. I believe Giada De Laurentis has the recipe on website.

      Yum! I am making some good side dishes, but I wanted a special protien for me. The hubby is having a lamb remoulade, but I'm not that into lamb, and I wanted a little lighter fare.

      I would also eat fish or chicken...But since the oven will be full of lamb,I was hoping for something quick or steam-grill-sauteeable

        Maybe just sautee some salmon, or cook a pan roasted chicken breast?

    2. I have had a sort of roulade(?) of faux turkey around a dressing of some kind. Obviously it didn't make an impression, but it was OK and provided a similar feel to turkey when I wasn't up to doing a whole dish just for me. I bought it in the deli section at Whole Foods -- as I recall you can buy a whole roll or just a section. I can't remember the price but I think it was a little pricey for what it was (like a lot of things in their deli).

      1. "the wellingtons" from native foods look promising:
