Vegan Ham (Best Recipe) Recipe

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 5 mins


▢ 14 oz extra firm tofu

▢ 1 tbsp mustard

▢ 2 tbsp avocado oil

▢ 1 tbsp smoked paprika

▢ 3 tbsp nutritional yeast

▢ 2 tbsp BBQ sauce

▢ 1 tsp cumin

▢ 1 tsp garlic powder

▢ 1 tsp chicken seasoning

▢ 2 tbsp maple syrup

▢ 1 tbsp sriracha

▢ 3/4 cup vegetable stock

▢ 1 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten

▢ 1/4 cup soy sauce

▢ 2 tbsp maple syrup

▢ 1 tbsp tomato paste

▢ 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

▢ 2 cloves garlic, minced


1Start by adding the tofu, mustard, avocado oil, smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, BBQ sauce, cumin, garlic powder, chicken seasoning, maple syrup, sriracha and vegetable stock to a blender or a food processor. Blend until a smooth and thick texture forms, and there’s no graininess from the tofu.

2Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the vital wheat gluten around 1/3 cup at a time, mixing it in using a rubber spatula. At the end, knead the seitan using your hands for around 60 seconds until the dough is thick and similar to bread dough.

3Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

4Shape the seitan into a ham-shaped cylinder. You can use foil to do this and to smooth out the sides. Then, transfer it to the baking tray and use a damp knife to make diagonal scores along the length of the ham. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

5Meanwhile, make the glaze when the 45 minutes is almost up. To a mixing bowl, add the soy sauce, maple syrup, tomato paste, apple cider vinegar and garlic, stirring together well.

6Remove the ham from the oven and brush it with around 1/4 of the glaze. Place a sheet of foil on top, wrap it tightly, and place it in the oven for 10 minutes.

7Remove the ham from the oven, brush with 1/4 more of the glaze, place the foil back on top and place in the oven for 10 minutes more.

8Now remove and add the rest of the maple glaze. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
