What are your favorite "ground beef" recipes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Veggie burgers... "Meat"-loaf... Spaghetti with "Meat"-balls...  what are your favorite vegetarian recipes to replace ground beef?  

 

We are slowly progressing to eating less (or no) meat, and these dishes are big time faves at our house, so we need good, healthy, homemade substitutes!  Thanks!

I have not actually made either of these, but they are on my to do list

 

Bean balls

 

Italian 'meat'balls

 

I need  to start making more of these type of things because we rely way too much on premade and frozen ground mock meats, sausages and burgers.

 

Oh forgot about this one. I do make this alot and you can change the seasonings how ever you want. Vegan sausages

My family (meat eaters included) has been loving this black bean quinoa recipe: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/black-bean-quinoa-burgers/

 

I also crumble it for tacos.

I'd also recommend the bean balls - they're so easy and delicious.  People have always ended up loving them.

 

I've done this recipe for beef macaroni with the pre-made veggie 'fake meat'.  And I'll say it works out very well - partly because you've got the macaroni and the corn in there with it and it's a highly seasoned dish anyway.  I suspect it would also turn out well with the lentils-as-fake-meat recipes out there (this lentil taco filling looks pretty good, probably because of the enchilada sauce) - there are other versions that are lentils & rice together, even for your crockpot, and that you can freeze.  I'd look around for one you think would be liked best (I can't recommend a specific one since we don't eat a lot of lentils anymore d/t allergies. . . but there's a lot of yummy looking ones and they're easy).

 

Depending on your crowd, I've also had good luck using the hash brown patties as a pseudo-burger sub (lots of veggie and yummy toppings with it), makes a good almost-reuben too with swiss and sauerkraut.
