Vegan Drumsticks

Healthy, crunchy, and delicious!


– Chickpeas – Vegetable brot – Nutritional yeast – Poultry seasoning – Soy sauce – Garlic powder – Onion powder – Miso paste – Wheat gluten

Step 1

Add chickpeas, broth, olive oil, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, and miso paste to a food processor and process until smooth.

Step 2

Transfer this to a mixing bowl. Now, add the vital wheat gluten to the bowl and mix it up with a silicone spatula to start and your hands to finish.

Step 3

Once it has come together in a coarse ball, sprinkle some vital wheat gluten on a clean countertop. Knead the dough (at least 10-12 times).

Step 4

Divide the dough into 8 pieces and shape your drumsticks into a pear shape. Pierce each piece with a skewer.

Step 5

To a large Dutch oven or pot and a steamer basket, add 3 cups of hot water into the bottom of the pot, bring to a boil and lower the heat to steam for at least 1 hour.

Step 6

Make basting liquid by mixing vegan butter, soy sauce, minced garlic, better than chicken vegan bouillon, oregano, and black pepper in a bowl.

Step 7

Soak rice paper in water for 30 seconds and remove excess water from it. Brush each drumstick with the basting liquid.

Step 8

Then, wrap the rice paper around the drumsticks. Then, brush the top of the rice paper with more basting liquid.

Step 9

While the drumsticks are steaming, preheat the oven to 400ºF. Place the steamed pieces in a baking dish and pour basting liquid over them.

Step 6

Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce!

These are usually gone before I know it!
