Vegan Ham

The Live-In kitchen

Scribbled Underline

Enjoy a showstopping gluten-free, vegan main dish at your holiday table or any time you need a meatless protein.

It starts with tofu

Extra firm tofu keeps this gluten-free, unlike most vegan ham recipes which are made almost entirely from gluten.

Press your tofu, using a press or something heavy on top, to remove the water before marinating.

Pro tip:

Start by mixing your marinade

This will give your tofu that smoky, salty flavor

Step 2

Make the glaze. The glaze will give the tofu extra flavor as it bakes and allow the edges to caramelize and crisp.
