Vegan Beef & Broccoli
This recipe’s inspiration came from me being in the exact right mindset. Someone I was working with had challenged me to make an air fryer, one pan lunch meal, and I was craving Chinese-American take-out. I made this to fulfill both needs and it’s one of my go-to weeknight meals now!
This is a perfect meal, this recipe involves plant-based protein, veggies, carbs, and sauce! The most important piece is the sauce that covers everything and is packed with flavour. I hope you enjoy it!

- ⅔ cup no-beef or vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1½ tsp maple syrup or brown sugar
- 4 garlic cloves, minced

- ½ tsp sesame oil
- ⅛ tsp white or black pepper
- pinchred pepper flakes, optional
- 1-2 tbspolive oil
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp water
- Cookedbrownor white rice
- 3green onions, sliced on a bias
- 1 tbspsesame seeds
- Line the sear plate with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and preheat oven to 400F.
- In a large bowl, dissolve one bouillon cube into the boiling water. Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Add the soy chunks to the bowl and let them sit for 10 minutes.
- Make the sauce: To a second large bowl add ⅔ cup no-beef or vegetable broth, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, maple syrup or brown sugar, minced garlic, ground ginger, sesame oil, white or black pepper, and red pepper flakes, if using.
- Squeeze and remove the soy chunks from the first bowl and place them onto the lined baking sheet.
- Add the broccoli to the sauce and give them a toss. Using your hands, or a slotted spoon, transfer the broccoli to the baking sheet, making sure the excess marinade drips back into the bowl, and reserve all of the sauce. Drizzle oil over the broccoli and soy chunks and mix with your hands to coat. Spread everything out, so it is mostly in one single layer on the baking sheet.
- Roast the broccoli and soy chunks for about 10 minutes, or until the chunks are browned slightly and the broccoli is fork-tender.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl or cup mix together 1 tbsp cornstarch with 1 tbsp water and set aside. Then bring the reserved marinade in a small saucepan to a boil, over medium-high heat.
- Whisk in the cornstarch slurry until dissolved. Reduce heat to a medium-low, and taste and season with salt, or more broth if the sauce is too thick, whisking until smooth.
- When broccoli mixture is ready, remove it from the oven, drizzle with sauce to taste and toss to coat.
- Serve over a bed of rice, topped with green onions and sesame seeds and enjoy.
