1 head of cauliflower
2 medium carrots
3 cloves of garlic
16 oz portobello mushrooms (**)
2 tbls Italian seasoning
1 tbls paprika
2 tsp sage
2 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp cumin powder
1.5 cups walnuts (*)
3 tbls tomato paste
3 tsp salt OR TO YOUR TASTE
* for nut free version omit walnuts and add another 8oz of portobello mushrooms more coarsely chopped than the first portion to keep some texture.
** for mushroom free use equivalent in jackfruit and process in to smaller pieces.
Coarsely chop all vegetables and garlic in a food processor. Mushrooms can be made even courser for a more meaty texture (This will need to be done in batches)
Coarsely chop walnuts along with tomato paste until combined.
Add 1 tbls of water to heated pan.
Add vegetables and mushrooms and continue to cook on medium-high until all the water releases (10-15 minutes)
When most of the water has cooked out add seasoning. Continue to cook on medium for another 10 minutes, or until all the water has evaporated.
Turn off heat and add walnut and tomato paste mixture. Mix thoroughly to combine.
Add to your dish of choice. Enjoy!
Keeps well in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer. I can’t tell you how long since mine never makes it more than a couple weeks without being used!
What can I replace the walnuts with? I’m allergic
Peace ☮️ and Blessings
I tried this recipe today- Mother’s Day Dinner and it came out great. I substituted sunflower seeds for the walnuts. Served it up with roasted turnips, beets and sweet potatoes. Delicious. Your recipes are giving me the encouragement to go full vegan. Thank you for simple, easy to follow instructions and delicious foods.
Can this be a good burger pattie substitute?
I have a nut allergy. Can you make a recommendation for substituting the walnut?
I would definitely love to try this recipe, however, I have a nut allergy, is there another alternative?
What other spices in it, I wonder?
Thanks for this recipe, you got yourself a new subscriber. What are all the seasonings you used?
Ok, I love you. Awesome recipe.
This is SOOOO much better than the “Impossible” & “Beyond” crap I was eating. Idk wtf is in that stuff. You made this foolproof (& you’re gorgeous-so that helps 😂) ❤
Why so delusional ?
Man , just go to the butcher shop and get your ground meat !
My advise is , listen to ex-vegans stories ! Maybe you will wake up in time , before you loose your health .
mmmm looks soooo good
My wife has a nut allergy is there a substitution for the nuts?
Good Afternoon, this is my first time hearing of or viewing your channel. I'm looking forward to Cheffing Up Your recipes🥳🍽️
What if you are allergic to Walnuts, is there a substitute?
Would be great if walnuts didn't cost about 20 times the price of meat. I like ground mushrooms and ground chickpeas and a little peanut butter
I have a vegan ground beef crumble as well, but I will definitely try your recipe too. I love to have multiple recipe options 😄 Looks great!
❤amazing! Thank you 😊

@healthyveganeating thank you so much for sharing this. It looks delicious. My only issue is, I’m Blood Type 🅰️ and can’t have tomatoes; too acidic. Is there something else you might suggest to substitute the tomato paste? Peace and Love ~B’klyn🦋

I'm going to try this and portion freeze the batch… Do you have an Italian sausage recipe?
"Now, the mushrooms are important…" 😢Big skip. I'm super allergic to mushrooms.😭
Looks delicious! Can I make veggie burgers or veggie meatballs out of this and freeze them?
Instead of walnuts I use brown lentils. It’s really good
Any sub for walnuts? I'm allergic to tree nuts. thanks.
Hello! I just came across your account a couple of days ago and I literally just finished making and eating my first helping of this veggie ground! Ohhhhh let me tell you (I know you already know but I just have to tell you again) holy cow this is the best ground beef substitute I’ve had!! I subscribed to your YouTube and will be making the meatball sandwich tomorrow with the tzatziki sauce! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes!
I’m so excited about trying this! Thank you.
Definitely going to try this recipe. Does it freeze well? In case I want to make extra for another day.
Sounds delicious! Maybe this would be a good base for Lindstrom style meatballs with capers and chopped beets?
Walnuts are great so long as u soak them in spring water first
