6 Vegan Ham Recipes to Bring Compassion to Your Holiday Table

There are many vegan ham products out there, but it’s always fun to make your own from recipes. Seitan roasts are sumptuously textured and make great holiday main courses. For flavor options, try substituting vegan ham broth in the recipe or add a dash of liquid smoke to the mix. Then brush a mixture of brown sugar, soy sauce, and orange juice on your “ham” before you bake it for a crispy, flesh-free crust.

Here are some other great vegan ham recipes that no one has to die for:

1. Caribbean Vegan Holiday Roast

Using vital wheat gluten as a base, this roast from the Caribbean Vegan cookbook is flavored with maple syrup, pineapple juice, liquid smoke, and more. We’ll definitely be trying it over the holidays.

6. Simple Vegan Smoked Ham Salad

Smoked almonds give this tofu blend a ham-like flavor. Quick and easy, it makes a perfect party appetizer on cucumber slices or celery, or you can put it on a bagel for a protein-packed snack.
