Vegan Ground Beef

Back to posting my cooking!  This is a simple Ground Beef substitute.  You could probably tweak it any number of ways, and do it with other substances than TVP, if you adjusted things like the vegetable broth.


1 cup Textured Vegetable Protein

1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth

3 Tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp liquid smoke

1 ½ tsp cumin

¼ tsp ground black pepper


  • Mix all ingredients together. Allow them to sit for 15 minutes.
  • Fluff mixture.
  • For added flavor, dry-sauté it for a few minutes to boil off liquid – essentially put it in a pot, turn it on high, and stir with a spatula until it starts to stick.
