Vegan Cheeseburger Helper

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. 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.
