Seitan Ham



Seitan Ham

  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (1 ½ C vital wheat gluten, 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1 tbsp corn starch, ½ tbsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder and ½ tsp salt).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (3 tbsp ketchup, 3 tbsp melted/ liquid coconut oil, 2 tbsp tahini, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, ½ tbsp tbsp. miso paste and ¾ C vegetable broth). The mixture won’t be completely blended or smooth.
  • Stir the wet mixture into the dry mixture, until a ball of dough forms. Knead this dough (in the bowl or on a counter) for about 2 minutes to work the gluten flour.
  • Place the dough on a piece of tin foil and shape into your vegan ham roast. Wrap tightly with tin foil. Place the open edge of the tin foil down onto a second sheet of foil and wrap tightly again.
  • Place onto a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes, flip the roast over and bake another 45 minutes.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and let sit for a few minutes before removing the tin foil and allowing the ham to cool completely (can place into the fridge for a few hours or overnight in a sealed container to speed timing).


  • Mix together ½ C pineapple juice, ¼ C maple syrup and 3 tbsp soy sauce in a small pot over medium-high heat. Once the glaze starts to simmer, whisk together 2 tsp corn starch and 2 tsp water in a small bowl.
  • While continuing to whisk the simmering glaze, pour in the starch mixture and keep whisking until it begins to thicken.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  • When ready to serve the ham, score the top of the cooked and cooled seitan roast (optional) and place into a small baking dish.
  • Pour glaze over the ham and bake for 25 minutes, until your roast is warmed through. At 5 minute intervals, brush the glaze around the ham so it cooks nicely into the top.
  • Once warmed through, remove from the baking tray, slice and serve!
