Thanksgiving Turkey Substitutes: The Least Appetizing Choices (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Here at HuffPost Green, we appreciate the positive effect that vegetarians are having on the environment, especially come Thanksgiving time when millions of factory farmed turkeys are slaughtered for the feast.

However, our appreciation for turkey-abstainers does not necessarily mean all turkey substitutes look particularly appetizing. We mostly get behind the philosophy that vegetarian food is better when it's not trying to pretend that it's meat. We thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the more wacky vegetarian and vegan turkey alternatives.

From Tofurky to nutloaf, check out this slideshow of the most bizarre foods to be consumed this Thanksgiving. Vote for what you think is the weirdest!
