Ready to swap that turkey on your Thanksgiving dinner table for Tofurky? Here’s how to make a delicious vegan Tofurky roast with roasted vegetables and a garlic and rosemary baste. This method works great for Field Roast as well! 



1 Tofurky Roast

34 Yukon Gold potatoes, chopped into large bite-sized chunks

2 large carrots, chopped into large bite-sized chunks

1 small yellow onion, sliced or chopped

5 large cloves of garlic, roughly minced

¼ cup of olive oil

2 tablespoons of fresh chopped rosemary, plus three sprigs for garnish

¼ teaspoon of salt


Thaw your frozen Tofurky roast in the refrigerator for 24 hours.  

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a casserole dish with large pieces of tin foil, leaving enough foil to reach up the sides and connect with the top piece of foil that will be added on later. 

Remove plastic wrap from Tofurky and place the roast inside the foil lined dish. 

In a small bowl, add the olive oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, and salt and mix well. 

In a large mixing bowl, add the chopped carrots, sliced onion, and chopped potatoes, and two tablespoons of the oil mixture. Mix until evenly coated and then place the veggies into the foil-lined casserole dish surrounding the Tofurky. 

Using a spoon or a basting brush, spread 1 heaping tablespoon of the oil mixture atop the Tofurky roast. 

Cover with tin foil and seal the top and bottom foil together so the Tofurky and veggies are completely enclosed. Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes. 

Remove from oven, uncover, add remaining oil mixture on top of the roast, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. 

Remove from the oven, remove the foil wrap, garnish with sprigs of rosemary, and enjoy!


Sliced Tofurky can dry out quickly, so only slice what you’re planning to eat right away, and tightly wrap the rest. To store, wrap in foil and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. To reheat in a microwave, cover with gravy or moisten with water and cover with a moist paper towel.
