By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes


8 ounces Extra Firm Tofu (226g)

1 cup Walnuts (100g)

5 cups Cremini Mushrooms (480g)

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 Medium Onion White, Yellow or Brown, Finely Chopped

2 Medium Stalks Celery Finely Chopped

1 Medium Red Bell Pepper Finely Chopped

4 Cloves Garlic Crushed

1 tsp Dried Basil

1 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp Smoked Paprika

1 tsp Cumin

1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce

1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke

1/2 cup Tomato Paste (130g)

1 cup Marinara Sauce (240ml)

2 Tbsp Coconut Sugar

1 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Ground Black Pepper


1Place the tofu in a bowl with a flat bottom and use a fork to mash it.

2Add walnuts to the food processor and process until finely chopped.

3Add whole mushrooms to the food processor and pulse it until finely chopped. Don't let the food processor run or the mushrooms will turn to paste. You just want them finely chopped.

4Add the mashed tofu, chopped walnuts and chopped mushrooms to a mixing bowl and mix them together. This is your veggie mince.

5In a pot on medium heat add olive oil, chopped onions, celery and red bell pepper. Sauté until softened.

6Add crushed garlic, dried basil, oregano, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika and cumin and sauté together for a minute to toast the spices.

7Add the veggie mince, light and dark soy sauce, liquid smoke, tomato paste, marinara sauce, coconut sugar, salt and pepper and toss together. Cook until the mushrooms have released extra liquid and the liquid has cooked down, leaving the mince a good consistency.

8Serve topped with fresh chopped parsley, over rice or mashed potatoes.
