Vegan Walnut “Chorizo” Crumble

This chorizo is a fun meat replacement on taco Tuesday. However, I don’t want you going in with the pretext that this will taste just like chorizo. This recipe is going to have a lot of similar flavors to it but the texture and actual outcome aren’t going to mimic chorizo as much. Just keep that in mind when you eat it.



  1. Place the walnuts and the black beans into a food processor. Pulse (emphasis on pulse NOT purée) until coarsely chopped.
  2. Add 2 tbsp olive oil, vinegar, paprika, chili powder, oregano, salt, taco seasoning, cumin and coriander. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped and looks like ground meat. You’ll want to go slow as to not over chop it and make it mushy.
  3. Stop and stir multiple times, moving the mixture from the bottom of the food processor to the top to mix evenly.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add “chorizo” mixture to the skillet.
  5. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until it looks like and browned, it should look like it resembles ground meat, stir it frequently.
  6. Once heated through, remove from heat and enjoy!
