Gluten-Free Vegan Turkey




For the “poultry” seasoning mix­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ (makes 2 ½ tbsp. worth)

  • 1 ½ tsp. ground sage
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground thyme
  • 1 tsp. ground marjoram
  • 1 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ tsp. ground rosemary
  • ½ tsp. celery seed
  • ½ tsp. ground allspice
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt

For the vegan turkey

  • 1 “chicken” flavored bouillon cube
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup soy flour
  • ¼ cup amaranth flour
  • ¼ cup pea protein
  • 2 Tbs. arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp. xanthan or guar gum
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbs. flaxseed
  • 1 Tbs. “poultry” seasoning
  • 2 Tbs. grated carrot
  • 1 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Set up a pot of boiling water with a steamer inserted. In a small saucepan, dissolve the bouillon cube in boiling water to make “chicken” broth. In a bowl, combine the rolled oats and 1/3 cup of broth. Mix and let sit for 10 minutes or until the broth is completely absorbed. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the soy flour, amaranth flour, pea protein, arrowroot and xanthan or guar gum. Stir well to combine.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the vegetable oil, tamari, nutritional yeast, flaxseed, seasoning and 1/3 cup of broth. Mix well to combine. Add the cooked oatmeal to the wet ingredients and stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Fold in the carrots and fresh parsley. Using a rubber spatula, mix until you have a dough. Then wet your hand and knead the dough in the bowl until it feels smooth and holds together. If the dough feels too wet or loose, add more soy or amaranth flour. If the dough feels too dry, wet your hands and knead rather than adding water to the dough. You add less water this way. When you are happy with the consistency of the dough, let it rest for 10 minutes. It should be a bit sticky and not too dry.
  5. Divide the dough into 4 sections. Shape each section into the shape you want – round or oval patties, logs, etc. – if you are making patties, make them very thin as they will expand during the steaming process. Alternatively, you could shape the entire dough into a log to make a roast. Let them sit again for 5 minutes. Wrap each piece in foil and steam them for 20 minutes. Remove the packets from the steamer, let them cool and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. When you are ready to cook them, take them out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature. Prepare them however you want.





When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.

I just made the log (roast). It\'s about the size, maybe a little smaller than the Field Roast Celebration Roast that you can find at Whole Foods and other stores.

recipe is unclear. If I steam one big log for a roast, does it take longer to steam then 4 smaller logs?

Soy is not supposed to be good for women.

anti-soy propaganda manufactured by the meat and dairy industries. Any study you read, do some research about who paid for it.

Yeah, because a rotting, factory farmed corpse pumped up with hormones and antibiotics is SO not-gross. LOL.

No there are many brands that say chicken flavour, but no real chicken. Not sure where you are, but in Australia we have Massel. Check your packaging. :)

Could hemp work in place of soy, maybe?
