Vegan Ground Beef

Vegan Ground Beef


  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup textured vegetable protein also called “TVP”
  • cooking oil for sautéing


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the marinade: vegetable broth, soy sauce, tomato paste, vegan Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, smoked paprika, and black pepper. If making taco meat, add 2-3 teaspoons of taco seasoning.
  2. Mix in the TVP and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a pan on medium heat with a little cooking oil (I use about 2 teaspoons.)
  4. Add the ground beef mixture to the pan. Sauté for about 10 minutes, or until browned.
