Description

Let’s just take a second to appreciate that it’s possible to make Vegan Ground Beef. And not just any vegan ground beef, this is an incredibly tasty, flavor-packed meat alternative. Bursting with delectable umami flavors, and full of spices, this meat-free mince is delicious in bolognese, tacos, chili sin carne, lasagna, and more.

This protein-packed Vegan Ground Beef will make any meal much more filling and hearty. Textured vegetable protein, also known as TVP, is the key ingredient here. It’s a popular vegan meat replacement that will wow your taste buds with its impressive similarity to mince. Feel free to mix up the spices in the recipe depending on what you have in the cupboard.


Ingredients

Scale

1 cup textured vegetable protein (TVP), small flakes (or 100 g)

2 cups vegetable stock (or 480 g)

2 tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

¼ tsp chili flakes

1 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Instructions

  1. Soak the TVP in 2 cups of vegetable stock for 5 minutes, then drain.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you get a crumbly mixture, not a paste. Spread evenly onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake at 175°C (or 350°F) for 15 minutes, then take out the oven and check. Bake until you get the desired mince texture.
