How To Make Vegan Holiday Roast
This is so easy to make and requires only about an hour of your time. Follow the recipe card at the bottom for specific details and instructions. Let’s make some vegan food.
First things first, preheat your oven to 350˚F. Then, add the kidney beans, soy sauce, tomato paste, and 2 Tbsp. of the leftover bean juice from the can to a food processor and blend until everything is smooth.
Using a large mixing bowl, add the vital wheat gluten, onion powder, garlic powder, sage, thyme, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Whisk until everything is well combined. Then, add in the bean mixture and stir to mix it all up.
The dough will still be fairly dry with some lumps. Don’t worry that’s what supposed to happen.
Next, pour in the low sodium vegetable broth or water. Mix the dough until it has a stretchy elastic texture. Once everything is well combined, knead the dough for about 2 to 3 minutes. If the dough is too wet, add a little wheat gluten. If it’s too dry, add a little more water or broth. Let the dough rest for about 5 minutes after kneading.
Roll out the dough and make a log that’s about 8-10 inches long. Wrap the log in parchment paper then roll it up in aluminum foil.
Place it on a baking sheet bake the vegan holiday roast for 1 hour flipping it over every 15 minutes. Remove the vegan holiday roast from the oven, carefully remove the foil and parchment paper, and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Slice it up and serve.
This Vegan Holiday Roast is sure to please anyone sitting around your Thanksgiving table this year.

Let the dough rest for about 5 minutes after kneading.
- Roll out the dough and make a log that’s about 8-10 inches long. Layout enough aluminum foil to get at least two wraps around the roast and overlap on the ends. Take out a piece of parchment paper the same size of the aluminum foil. Wrap the log in parchment paper first and then roll it up in aluminum foil.
- Set the roast on a baking sheet, place it in the oven and bake the roast for at least 1 hour. Flip the roast every 15 minutes. A good pair of tongs work well for this.
