I am extremely excited to bring you my take on a completely plant-based Christmas "Ham" with a beautiful glaze on top. You can even take it up a level and add grilled pineapple, we have and it is so tasty. You will NOT believe this roast when you slice into it, watch the video for the full effect and be prepared to be amazed.
It actually looks like ham when you slice it. Is that gross? Tasty? Are you indifferent? What do you think? And why? Why create ham if it is vegan? Well for starters it was requested, a beautiful baked roast to bring to the dinner table this Christmas or holiday season. Second, it's what I grew up on, we'd have Turkey for Thanksgiving and Ham for Christmas. And third, just because we're vegan doesn't mean we don't still enjoy a plant-based replacement for flavor, texture, comfort of home, comfort of the season, and I'm sure we all have our own unique reasons. No matter the case, I am proud to bring you this roast. I tested 3 varieties, and this was by far the hands down winner. I did discover some new tricks along the way that I think you'll see in other meat replacements. In the meantime, you gotta try this recipe. Bookmark it for your holiday roast!
3 Cups Peruvian Beans (aka Canary, Mayacoba, Mexican Yellow Beans)
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
3 Tbsp Tamari Sauce (Soy or Coconut Aminos)
1/2 Tbsp Liquid Smoke
1 Tbsp Syrup (Maple, Agave...)
Juice of 1 Lemon
1/2 Cup Diced Onion
1/2 Cup Steamed Beets - Diced Fine
1 Cup Diced Mushrooms
4 Cloves Garlic - Minced
1/2 Cup Gluten-Free Oats
1/3 Cup Corn Flour (Harina de Maiz)
2 tsp Psyllium Husk
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Cayenne (opt)
1/2 Tbsp Paprika (smoked if you have it)
1/4 tsp Cloves
1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
2 Tbsp Syrup (Maple, Agave...)

From here you can freeze extras, have it on a sandwich, serve it with a holiday spread, fry, bake, crumble - you can do several things with the roast once it is made.
