Gluten-Free Vegan Turkey

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan


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.

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?

Organic soy in moderation is not bad for human consumption. Now, constant amounts of gmo soy products everyday is terrible for you.

This recipe is actually full of nutritious herbs, spices and grains. Sounds pretty tasty to me. I love to splurge once in a while with a chewy satifying dish like this. I made a tofurkey yesterday for Easter, and I probably would have made this if I'd have had the recipe.
