Easy Vegan Beef and Broccoli

Vegan Beef and Broccoli Recipe

I am really into soy curls. They taste SO good when they are made properly.

They soak in whatever flavor you’re infusing it with, they are full of protein, and just so good.

It’s the perfect mock meat for this vegan beef and broccoli dish.

Everyone in my family loves this vegan beef and broccoli.

And if you have been following along, you know my 5-year-old likes pretty much nothing, so this is big. I LOVE a night that I don’t have to beg the kids to eat, it makes dinner time so much more pleasant!

This is also a 30 minutes or less vegan recipe which is amazing for a quick weeknight meal.

Quick, painless, and not too many dishes. I call that a win!

How do you like your broccoli for “beef” and broccoli? Let me know in the comments!

What do you need for this vegan beef and broccoli?

  • dry soy curls
  • broccoli chopped
  • water or more (for cooking broccoli)
  • oil neutral
  • Cooked rice for serving
  • soy sauce, low sodium
  • brown sugar
  • cornstarch mixed with 1TB water
  • sesame oil
  • ginger powder
  • garlic, minced
  • no beef broth or vegetable broth

How do you make it this vegan beef and broccoli?

Start by soaking your soy curls. 

Put 2 cups of soy curls in a bowl and cover them with warm water- let sit for 10 minutes.

While your soy curls are soaking, make your sauce. 

Mix all your sauce ingredients except for the cornstarch. 

Mix the cornstarch separately by taking 1 TB of water and 2 tsp cornstarch, mix until smooth then add to your sauce and stir.  Set aside.

Now strain your soy curls.

Remove all the water by squeezing them until they stop producing water. 

Take your 2 TB cornstarch and mix it with your soy curls. Add your soy curls in a hot large skillet and cook the soy curls until they are browned. Remove them from the pan. 

Then add your chopped up broccoli to the pan with some water so it steams the broccoli and doesn’t stick, cook this until it starts to turn bright green, not overly cooked, but the texture you want it for the dish. 

Add back your soy curls with the broccoli, add the vegan beef stock and the sauce. 

Mix until the sauce is thickened, this only takes a few minutes.  And you’re ready to serve.

Serve with rice

I'm curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I'm experiencing some small security issues with my latest blog and I'd like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any recommendations?

First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

all the time i used to read smaller posts that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this place.

Can I simply say what a relief to seek out somebody who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the best way to carry an issue to light and make it important. Extra folks need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant imagine youre not more common because you positively have the gift.
