This is how to make an easy vegan turkey roast that's quick & tasty! I wanted to make it easy for you to make a vegan roast for the holidays! If you want your holidays to be filled with flavours and scents of a classic holiday roast, while being vegan, this simple upgrade can be made in about an hour and a half.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 vegan roast like Tofurky, thawed in the fridge for 24 hours
Basting liquid:
Veggies: (you can add any veggies you want, but these are my favourites)
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 3 large carrots, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into quarters
  • 1 bulb of garlic, cloves removed and peeled
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove the plastic and clips from a tofurky roast or your vegan roast of choice.
  3. For this, a roast pan is best, but any dish with a lid or even foil will work.
  4. Prepare your veggies and basting liquid. Add chopped veggies into roast pan with about 3 tbsp-1/4 cups of the baste on top.
  5. Place the Tofurky or vegan roast of choice onto a large piece of parchment paper & place it in the center of pan or on top of the veggies. Ppour over about ½ of the remaining basting liquid, leaving the other ½ to use later after 1 hour of cooking.
  6. Cover and bake for roughly 1 hour - 1 hour 15 mins, basting every 30 mins. Check the roast at 1 hour to see if it's cooked to perfection as all ovens are different. If not, leave in oven longer, checking periodcally. It took my oven 1 hr and 15 mins.
  7. Once roasted, take out of oven and carefully remove the parchment. Next, pour the reserved basting liquid onto the roast and the veggies and cook uncovered for another 10 mins.
  8. Meanwhile, prepare your vegan gravy (you can use my easy recipe). If you bought the pack that includes the gravy you can use that or use my easy gravy recipe.
  9. Remove the roast from the oven, scoop up the liquid at the bottom, and pour it over the roast and veggies.
  10. Let it rest for a couple of minutes, and then slice with a serrated knife.
  11. Serve with veggies and of course, delicious vegan gravy.
  12. If you have leftovers, turn it into my leftover thanksgiving sandwich idea!
  1. If you're low on time and/or ingredients, just baste with ½ cup your favourite vegetable broth, ¼ cup oil of choice, and 2 tbsp soy sauce.
  2. If you want to upgrade the gravy that came with the Tofurky, simply add 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast, and season to taste.

    Love all your recipes Candace, from a fellow canadian. (NB)

  • I wish that they were not full of wheat and other things I’m allergic to! Especially my corn allergy and it’s derivatives! All the meat substitutes are made of wheat 😿

  • I have found the Gardein festive roast superior to my old friend the Tofurkey. And it does not have to be thawed. This looks like a great way to make either one more substantial. They are both a lot smaller than they look in pictures.

  • It looks so yummy ^^ <3

    My sister & I are vegetarians and for the first time I was in charge of the “turkey”. I am not a fan of how our store bought vegetarian roast is traditionally done (it is so dry), so I searched the internet for another recipe and decided to try this one out since it had a baste and looked easy.

    The result? Wow!!! It was amazing!!!! The roast was moist & packed with flavor. It was a hit!!! Thank you so much!!! I added crushed garlic to the roast baste and substituted sazón seasoning (typical in Hispanic cuisine) for old bay seasoning since I couldn’t find it here. But everything else was exactly like the recipe. I paired it with the mushroom gravy recipe (you need to try this!!!). Oh my goodness!!! It was AMAZEBALLS!!!!! Yummo! 🤤 This will now be our go to holiday roast!!! It was already requested for Christmas!!!!

    Tried this recipe for Thanksgiving, and me and my s/o LOVED IT! I’m making it again in a couple days for my roommate thanksgiving because I can’t wait to share it with more Omni friends! Can’t wait to play with the leftovers too. 😋

  • I used this recipe to upgrade my Field Roast Celebration Roast and it was so easy! The result was great and I thoroughly enjoyed this main dish during my thanksgiving feast

  • This was delicious! I was so worried about making a roast and side dishes all at different times but this was a one-in-all recipe to make a tasty roast (omg seasoning make it taste so much flavourful) and vegetables in 90 mins. Super happy I found this recipe!
