Did you know, Vegan ground beef replacements are often made out of mushrooms, soy, or beans? Using walnuts gives this ground beef a more hearty texture, and doesn’t require much prep or any cook time at all.
Like many raw food recipes, this grounded up vegan meat is also fantastic for next day use. If you have the patience and willpower let this recipe marinate overnight. Serve on nachos, use in sauces, tacos or your favourite pasta dish.
