We’re loving all the turkey alternatives, but our favorite has to be a homemade meatless loaf. This one is much different than your traditional tofu turkey or nut roast, but is both savory and decadent, with a crisp outside and tender inside – featuring the luscious aroma of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
