Yields10 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time1 hrDifficultyIntermediate

Ingredients

 2 ½ cups vital gluten flour
 ½ cup nutritional yeast
 1 tsp thyme
 ½ tsp rubbed sage
 1 tsp onion powder
 1 tsp salt
 2 tsp McKay's Chick'n seasoning (optional)
 2 cups vegetable broth
 ¼ cup olive oil
 1 tbsp soy sauce
 1 sheet vegan Puff Pastry (optional)

Instructions

1

In a bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (except for the Puff Pastry) and mix them together.

2

Add the wet ingredients to a separate bowl and whisk them together. Then pour the mixture over the dry ingredients.

3

Stir the wet and dry ingredients together to form dough.

4

Form the dough into a loaf shape with your hands and wrap it in cheesecloth. Tie off the ends of the cheesecloth with string to keep the loaf in place.

5

Put the loaf into boiling water and cook it on medium heat for 1 hour.

6

After the loaf has cooked you can remove the cheesecloth and serve it as it is. However, the roast will be more delicious if you add the Puff Pastry "skin".

Optional Steps
7

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

8

Roll out a sheet of vegan Puff Pastry and wrap it around your cooked roast. Form the dough with your hands so it seals around the loaf.

9

Add a little olive oil to the bottom of your pan so the loaf does not stick to the bottom. Add the loaf to the pan and brush the top of the loaf with olive oil.

10

Bake the loaf in the oven at 400°F for 25 minutes. Remove and serve your delicious vegan turkey!
