Vegetarian Bologna

This recipe is easy to make from 100% wheat protein (High Gluten Flour or Vital Wheat Gluten). It’s great in sandwiches, julienned with vegetable sticks, or in Fried Bologna Casserole.

Makes 1-20 ounce bologna roll.


  • 1 c water
  • 2 tsp Liquid Smoke
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 c vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 c nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/8 tsp ground mace
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the water, Liqud Smoke, and olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl, blend the vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, coriander, mace, and cloves.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until thick; then use clean hands to knead for a minute or two, adding more water or flour as needed.
