Baked 'Ham' 3 Ways

by Osamu


Grace your table with a delicious vegan ham (or 3!) this Christmas. Vegan ham is available from Global Green and Vincents Vegetarian Foods, it's also worth checking your local Asian grocery as they may also stock it. The baked hams can be served hot or cold (they would make a delicious addition to a sandwich or salad).

Note that the 'ham' we used came in a one kilo roll. We've used half a roll for each of these recipes, of course you can double up and make the whole roll '1 Way'.

Apricot Glazed 'Ham'

kilo loaf of vegan ham
30 - 40 cloves
3 tablespoons maple syrup
7-8 dried apricots

Cut a small slice off lengthways off the ham so it doesn't roll.  Cut the loaf in a criss cross pattern, approximately 2.5cm apart. Stick a clove into the corner of each square. 

Brush the ham with maple syrup and bake for 15 minutes at 180C.  Remove from oven, arrange apricots on the top and then bake for a further 15 minutes.

Note: you can use cherries, peaches or pineapple instead of apricots.

Herb crusted baked 'ham'

2 tsps Dijon mustard
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 tbsp oil
Egg Replacer (for 2 eggs) as instructions on packet
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce

Cut a small slice lengthwise of the ham so it doesn't roll around. Brush with a little oil and bake at 180C for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven.

Mix all remaining ingredients except mustard.

Rub the ham with the mustard, pack on the mixture and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.
