Finding the perfect ground-beef replacement for Taco Tuesday when you’re vegan and gluten-free can be tricky. Since some of the most popular meatless alternatives—like seitan or other wheat-heavy proteins—aren’t safe for those who have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, it’s hard to find a substitute that’s as satisfying as the real thing. But now there’s a version you can whip up in 10 minutes using just nuts, spices, and veggies. Okay, and a food processor.

Dana Shultz, the plant-based food blogger behind Minimalist Baker, recently shared a raw vegan taco recipe that totally masters the meaty texture (and is packed with protein, to boot!), primarily with the help of the two main ingredients: raw walnuts and sun-dried tomatoes. The faux meat only takes 10 minutes to make, no cooking required. Simply use the food processor to both transform the walnuts into a semi-fine meal and create the spiced tomato-based mixture, which you then stir together. Next, pile it high on your gluten-free tortilla, add toppings, and chow down.

This raw vegan taco recipe totally masters the meaty texture of ground beef, primarily with the help of two ingredients: raw walnuts and sun-dried tomatoes.

In her recipe, Shultz notes the meaty vegan mixture can be stored in the fridge for five to seven days or kept for up to one month in the freezer—AKA a meal-prep dream come true. Don’t just limit its use to tacos, though: The versatile blend also makes for a great addition to burritos, enchiladas, chili, nachos, and even salad. Basically, it’s about to become your quick fix for a gluten-free, vegan ground beef that you can whip up in a jiffy whenever you need it.

Check out the step-by-step instructions for the gluten-free, vegan “beef” in the video below.
