Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and today instead of going on about good turkey is, we're going to do our vegetarian friends a solid: let's talk about what could possibly replace it in the future. That's right folks, we're on a new horizon of creating fake meats that taste and feel just like the real thing. So while some of you carnivores out there might cringe over the sight of a Thanksgiving tofurkey, just remember that just a little bit down the line the artificial replacement could be just as good as the real thing (and way better for the environment).
