Not having ground beef making you grind your gears? Then I have the recipe for you, my plant-based friend! Grind no further with this Vegan Ground Beef recipe.

Vegan Ground Beef

This meat substitute is dense, hearty, and high protein thanks to vital wheat gluten. When prepared properly, this unassuming looking flour becomes “seitan” and can lend itself to have the same taste and texture as meat. It’s so realistic sometimes, you may think satan himself made this seitan.

Vegan Ground Beef

Vegan jokes aside, you will love this seitan based ground meat. It works perfectly as a taco filling, the base for a hearty bolognese, or to bulk up your vegan chili. It’s also surprisingly easy to make. Kneading out the dough does take a little elbow grease. Once you’re done workout out your arms though, you’ll be able to replenish with a high protein meal!
