Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 1 Roast (6 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: small pot, food processor, large mixing bowl, parchment paper, aluminum foil, steamer
  • 70g (heaping ½ cup) cashews
  • 130g (½ can/box or 2 cups) chickpeas, drained
  • 100g (¾ cup) oat flour
  • 150ml (⅔ cup) unsweetened milk
  • 120g (1 cup) vital wheat gluten
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp chicken seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 50g (½ cup) dried cranberries
Recipe Directions


  • Boil the cashews in water for 15 minutes and drain the water. Alternatively, you can also soak the cashews overnight and drain the water.
  • Blend the milk, chickpeas, oil, and cashews in a food processor. Blend until you have a creamy liquid but don't worry about lumps.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients except for the cranberries. Blend until this texture starts to turn into a dough, about 3 minutes. If the mixture is too wet to form large clumps add more vital wheat gluten.
  • Place the processed ingredients into a large mixing bowl and add the cranberries. Knead this dough in the bowl until well incorporated.
  • Shape the dough into a loaf. Place the loaf in plenty of parchment paper and then place that inside of aluminum foil.
  • Place this into a steamer and steam approximately for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Serve immediately when done, enjoy!

You can store in the refridgerator for up to 4 days or freeze for 3 months but make sure to wrap it well when storing to keep it from getting hard.

You can slice the loaf and pan-fry each slice for some added texture.

You can create your own oat flour by blending oats in a blender until smooth.

The vegan seitan Thanksgiving cranberry roast sliced on a place with gravy over them. Served with potatoes, broccoli, peas, carrots, and crumpets.

This is absolutely the BEST meatless, vegan turkey recipe out there.

What is This Vegan Turkey Made of?

It has multiple types of ingredients, including chickpeas, oats, and wheat gluten, to create texture and provide protein. This means you are getting a variety of macronutrients from a variety of sources. Best of all, it isn't store-bought, so it's less processed and much healthier for you and your guests!

Gotta love the cranberries included into the loaf as well which really compliments any side dish you choose. We love serving this with collard greens for example, because they contrast the cranberries really well.

Cranberries can be optional, especially if you choose to use leftovers in different ways, like a soup for instance.

No need to buy a vegan turkey ever again, try this recipe out and let us know what you think!
