Beyond Beef Burger, Mashed Potatoes, Coleslaw And Baked Beans

Posted in Cooking, Vegan, Vegan Cooking, Vegan Recipes with tags , , , , on October 13, 2020 by darkjade68

I recently began making Vegan Burgers out of ‘Beyond Beef’, instead of ‘Beyond Burgers’… They’re the same company, but the Beyond Beef comes in a package where they aren’t made into patties… Beyond Burgers are shaped like patties

I cut the Beyond Beef package into four pieces, then I grab one of the four pieces, and mix it with Bar B Q Sauce and Garlic Powder, like I did years ago with actual burger… For some reason, these taste better to me than the patties, though the patties are also good… I eat both for variety, but the hand made patties taste better to me for some reason


  • Beyond Beef
  • Bar B Q Sauce
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cabbage
  • Veganaise
  • Almond Milk
  • Potatoes
  • Curry
  • Lemon
  • Pepper
  • Baked Beans (Vegan)

Coleslaw Prep:

Cut up Cabbage, put into a Tupperware or other type of container, put in as much Veganaise as you like…

Vegan Ravioli

Posted in Cooking, Food, Vegan Cooking, Vegan Recipes with tags on August 1, 2020 by darkjade68

This was so good, made a few weeks back


Made this a few weeks back, didn’t get a chance to post it


  • Vegan Raviolis (Store Bought)
  • Fresh Tomato (1 Medium Tomato)
  • Frozen Peas (Maybe a Cup of so)
  • Almonds or Mixed Nuts (1/2 a Cup)
  • Fresh Garlic (3 or 4 Cloves)
  • Vegan Cream Cheese (Bits of it put on top after dished up)
  • Olive Oil (Maybe 5 Table Spoons)

Can’t remember if we used Oregano (Dried, Table Spoon), but I’d go ahead and add it to the sauce

Lately I’ve been using Basil (Dried, Tea Spoon), a new component to my cooking as of late


  1. Boil Raviolis
  2. Place Fresh Garlic in Olive oil on Medium Heat
  3. Add Nuts
  4. Add Frozen Peas
  5. Add Fresh Tomato
  6. Add Oregano, and Basil
  7. Cook until Frozen Peas are heated through and through
  8. Dish up, and Add Cream Cheese Bits over the dish

Voila (Wallah)

More Chili, More Spaghetti And Another Taco Salad (Vegan)

Posted in Cooking, Vegan, Vegan Cooking, Vegan Recipes with tags , , on April 7, 2020 by darkjade68

My Chili’s are generally the same CHILI RECIPE’

My Spaghetti’s vary, this one I used Beyond Sausage (Cook them first, or in a different pan, 4 minutes on each size… You can also cut them into 1/2 slices and cook them that way if you like, or slice them after you cook them. Once their cooked, put them in the sauce, either while the sauce cooks, or after), Tomato Sauce, Stewed/Diced Tomatoes (Fresh Tomatoes are always good too), Fresh Garlic, Olive Oil, Oregano (Red Wine is also optional), Vegan Parmesan Cheese

Taco Salad Recipe is pretty much the same as this one TACO SALAD RECIPE

Using Beyond Beef in the Salad

Vegan Taco Salad (Beyond Beef)

Posted in Cooking, Life, Vegan Cooking with tags , , , , on March 12, 2020 by darkjade68


Vegan Tacos the night before, with the leftover Beyond Beef Tacos I made a Vegan Taco Salad


  • Beyond Beef
  • Corn (Frozen, Canned or Fresh)
  • Tomato Sauce (Small Can, or 1/2 Regular Can)
  • Cholulu Sauce (Or Chili Pepper)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Vegan Blue Cheese (Or any kind of Vegan Dressing, Olive Oil or Vinaigrette)
  • Avacado
  • Vegan Cheese (Mine was Graded from a block)


Preheat a non stick pan, break up Beyond Beef into pieces and put in pan, cook 4 mins then flip all the Beyond Beef pieces, and cook them for 4 more mins.

Then pour in Tomato Sauce, and either hit it with Cholulu Sauce, or Chili Powder, as much as you like. Also add the corn to the meat.

Throw the rest of the stuff into a salad bowl.

Add Beef on top, wala
