  1. Step 1

    Combine soy milk with apple cider vinegar; let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Combine water, sugar, and yeast for dough in a food processor fitted with the metal blade; pulse 4 times or until just combined. Remove the blade, scraping yeast mixture into the bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Insert the short plastic dough blade. Add 1/2 cup of the flour and process for 2 minutes. Add 4 more cups flour, mashed potatoes, soy milk-vinegar mixture, sugar, soy yogurt, melted vegan butter, orange zest, salt, and baking soda; process for 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 cup flour and process until a dough forms and comes together to hold its shape, about 2 more minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Transfer dough to a well-greased bowl; turn to coat all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile, mix brown sugar, pecans, vegan butter, and cinnamon for filling together in a bowl. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  6. Step 6

    Punch dough down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 10x18-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with filling, leaving a 1-inch border around the top and bottom. Starting at one of the long sides, roll dough jelly-roll fashion. Cut into 12 equal slices and arrange in the prepared baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 30 minutes.
  7. Step 7

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  8. Step 8

    Bake rolls in the preheated oven until golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes. Remove rolls from the oven and invert onto a baking sheet. Invert again onto a serving platter and let cool, 20 to 30 minutes.
  9. Step 9

    While the rolls are cooling, beat cream cheese substitute until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar and soy milk until smooth.
  10. Step 10

    Spread glaze on rolls. Serve warm.
