Recipe Directions for Veggie Hamburger Helper

  3. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Have a lid at the ready because you?ll need to cover it at some point.

  4. Drizzle the oil in the pan and tear the tempeh into bite sized pieces, adding them to the pan. Saute for about 5 minutes, until tempeh is lightly browned. In the meantime, mix the seasoning together in a mixing bowl.

  5. Add a few tablespoons of water to the tempeh to deglaze the pan. Add the 3 cups of water and seasoning mix, giving a good stir to get it all mixed in. Add the pasta and cover. Bring the heat up to a boil. Once boiling, you can reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring once. Remove the lid, and cook until the sauce is reduced and thickened to your liking, usually about 3 minutes. Taste for salt.

  6. Serve topped with Eazy Breezy Cheezy Sauce.

  7. Eazy Breezy Cheezy Sauce

  8. Makes 2 cups

  9. 3/4 cup nutritional yeast

  10. 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  11. 2 teaspoons granulated garlic

  12. 2 teaspoons onion flakes

  13. 1/4 teaspoons salt, or to taste

  14. 1/8 ground turmeric

  15. 2 tablespoons broth powder (I used Frontier chicken-style broth)

  16. 2 cups water

  17. 1 teaspoon yellow mustard

  18. Add nutritional yeast, flour, garlic, onion flakes, salt, turmeric and broth powder to a bowl and mix together. Add 2 cups water and use a fork to mix and beat out any big lumps. Once relatively smooth, pour into a 2 quart sauce pot. Turn heat up to medium high and stir often for about 5 minutes. Once boiling, bring it down to a slow boil. It should start bubbling and thickening. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring almost constantly, until it has a thick, smooth melted cheese consistency.

  19. Mix in mustard and taste for salt. Serve hot or warm.
