  • Blender
  • stove
  • Oven


  • 1 ½ cups Vital Wheat Gluten We use Bob’s Red Mill
  • 1 cup tofu
  • 1 small cooked red beet
  • 1 tablespoon red miso
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup tamari
  • 2 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • cup water
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Glaze
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon ground cloves


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the 1 ½ cups of vital wheat gluten, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and 2 teaspoon smoked paprika.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend the 1 cup tofu, 1 small cooked beet, 1 tablespoon red miso, 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ cup tamari, 2 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce, ⅓ cup water, 2 tablespoon ketchup,
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, 1 tablespoon liquid smoke, and 3 tablespoon maple syrup for 1 minute.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until the mixture becomes solid. Slowly add more water or wheat gluten if the mixture doesn’t become solid.
  • Knead the dough for 6 minutes (this is important for texture, don’t skimp on the time). It will become stretchy. Form it into a log and wrap it in foil or parchment paper.
  • Steam it in a pot with a steamer basket for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  • In a small saucepan, stir the 1 tablespoon vegan butter, 2 tablespoon yellow mustard, ¼ cup maple syrup, ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves over medium heat until boiling. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • Remove the ham from the foil or parchment and place in a rimmed baking pan (See Note), score the top of the ham (optional) and brush with the glaze.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Brush with another layer of glaze and serve.



To prevent the bottom of the roast from getting too tough, bake it on a rack over the roasting pan.
