Source: Savory Tooth | Serves: 4 | Time: 40 min

Broccoli & Beyond Beef Casserole

Changes: used Beyond Meat; replaced cheddar cheese with jalapeno pepper jack; replaced parmesan with nutritional yeast; skipped celery; skipped cayenne since the cheese has jalapeno


1 lb Beyond ground beef

14-ounce can tomato sauce

6 cups small broccoli florets

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1.5 tsp table salt

1 tsp garlic powder


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Cut any broccoli florets larger than 2 inches into smaller pieces, and add all broccoli to large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until tender, about 5 minutes. Let them drain and steam out on paper towels.

Meanwhile, add Beyond beef to large pan over medium heat. Crumbling beef with stiff utensil, about 5 minutes. Keeping everything in pan, stir in tomato sauce, salt, and garlic powder. Simmer for at least 10 minutes to thicken sauce, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat and let moisture steam out.

Directly in 8×8 inch baking dish, add broccoli, beef-tomato mixture, and half of the shredded cheese, carefully stirring together until well-mixed. Evenly top with remaining shredded cheese. Sprinkle nutritional yeast on top.
