Hello Everyone!! Hope you are all staying safe during these crazy times we are living in.
When I was looking for easy one pot meals to make I came across this vegan cheeseburger helper by Sarahs Vegan. https://youtu.be/dNfmYa3aowU I was never one for those helper meals. They really grossed me out. Anyway, I wanted to try something new and this was easy enough to make. I also figured since it is homemade, it just had to be better than that box stuff. Man was I right. This stuff is so good and really does taste like a cheeseburger.
This recipe is also really great for meal prepping. One batch is good for like three or four lunches. It also heats up really nicely.
When I first made this, I used one package of Gardein crumbles. In the video I used Beyond Fiesta crumbles. Both are really great but if I had to choose, I'd go with the Gardein crumbles.
For the beef style broth, I used Better Than Bouillon No Beef. I added 2 tsps to the water. You can also use vegetable broth.
Let's get to the recipe shall we. Here is what you will need:
1 pkg of Gardein crumbles or your choice of vegan crumbles
1 medium onion diced
3-4 cloves of garlic minced
2-3 tbsp organic ketchup
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp vegan worchestshire sauce
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried parsley
2 1/2 cups beef style broth
1 cup plain unsweetened plant milk
12 ounces of pasta, elbow macaroni is best in my opinion
1 - 2 cups of your favorite vegan cheddar shreds.
In a large skillet with a lid over medium heat, add the Gardein crumbles and stir around for a bit. If they are frozen, cook until heated through.
Add the onion and saute until tender. You can add a little water if anything is sticking. Add the garlic and let it cook for just a minute.
Add the ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce and spices and stir to combine.
Add the beef style broth, milk and pasta. Stir around. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
The liquid should be mostly absorbed by the pasta.
Add the cheese and stir until melted.
