No meat, no soy, no sugar Vegan meat crumbles.


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper


  1. Add the cauliflower, walnuts, and garlic to a food processor and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Do not over pulse, you do not want the cauliflower to liquify. You will need to use a spatula to move some of the larger pieces of cauliflower down towards the blade in between pulses.
  2. Throw the crumbled mixture into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in all of the remaining ingredients for the meat" and mix well. (I find it easiest to use your hands)
  4. Pour the mixture onto the parchment lined sheet pan and spread evenly using a spatula.
  5. Bake the "meat" for about 30 minutes, stirring the meat after 15 minutes. The meat should be golden brown but not burnt.
  6. Use the crumbles in place of meat crumbles in anything from tacos to omelets.
