How to Cook a Delicious Vegan Turkey Roast

How to Cook a Delicious Vegan Turkey Roast

Thankfulness is in the air! With the holiday season upon us, we want to share a great vegan turkey roast recipe from one of our favorite online food bloggers, Nora Cooks. This is a wonderful replacement to the traditional turkey for Thanksgiving (especially if you’re celebrating National Vegan Month as well!) 

Vegan Turkey Roast Recipe Ingredients

  • Chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • Vegetable broth or no-chicken broth (the no-chicken Better than Bouillon is a great choice with tons of flavor!)
  • Olive Oil
  • Nutritional Yeast 
  • Low sodium soy sauce or Tamari 
  • Dried sage and thyme
  • Dried rosemary
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Vital Wheat Gluten (cannot be substituted)
  • Vegan butter 


  1. Add the chickpeas, broth, olive oil, nutritional yeast, soy sauce and herbs into a blender or food processor. Blend or process until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the vital wheat gluten.
  3. Start to mix with a spoon, then use your hands and mix until combined.
  4. Sprinkle a little vital wheat gluten on a clean counter, add the mixture and knead about 10 times. Shape it into a loaf. It will be quite small, but expands while it cooks.

This vegan spin on a traditional turkey will leave you feeling stuffed! But what’s a turkey without delicious veggie sides? Check out our list of the top seven vegan side dishes to bring to Thanksgiving this year.
