vegan ground beef


Now I normally don't like using words like "beef" and "cheese" to describe vegan food. But there's no better way to put it. The seasonings of this recipe give the beef flavor. Then the combination of ground cauliflower with oyster mushrooms gives the spongy and crumbly texture of meat. Bakes in the oven to perfection!



  1. 1 large cauliflower
  2. 10 dark cremini mushrooms
  3. 1 c oyster mushrooms
  4. 1 medium onion
  5. 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  6. 2 cloves garlic
  7. 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  8. 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  9. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  10. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  11. 1-1/2 teaspoons oregano
  12. 1-1/2 teaspoons cumin
  13. 1 teaspoon turmeric
  14. 1 teaspoon chili powder
  15. 1 teaspoon paprika
  16. 1 teaspoon salt
  17. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  18. 2 tablespoons tomato paste


1.   Food processor

Gradually add everything to a food processor. Pulse a little after each big ingredient that you add. Start with the cauliflower because it will be the hardest to process. Pulse until the texture is crumbly.

2.   Bake

Add everything to a baking sheet with olive oil. Bake on 300° for 1 hour. Take it out and mix everything once every 15 minutes.
