Share this recipe:


  • 1 ½ cup Longève Unseasoned Plant-Based Protein Crumbles
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ½ small onion, diced small
  • ½ cup bell pepper, diced small
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. allspice
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce*
  • ½ cup water
  • 4-6 hamburger buns, for serving


  1. Combine Longève Crumbles with ¾ cup hot water in a small bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes to rehydrate.
  2. Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add rehydrated crumbles, onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently until vegetables soften and begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic powder, chili powder, pepper, allspice and brown sugar and cook for an additional minute or two.
  4. Add tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce) and water, stir well and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently until mixture has thickened significantly. Taste, and adjust seasoning if desired.
  5. Serve hot, piled high onto soft hamburger buns. Don’t forget the napkins! 

*WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE typically contains anchovies, making it unsuitable for vegetarian and vegan cooking. So to keep this recipe veg-friendly, we recommend swapping out the Worcestershire for soy sauce.
