HAMBURGER HELPER.  HOW TO MAKE IT VEGAN.

Let’s make something OLD with something NEW!  When Tonia was a kid one of her favorite things her mom made for dinner was Hamburger Helper. (Before she went vegan, of course!) So she decided to veganize it today using Sweet Earth vegan ground meat substitute and the new, amazing cheese sauce mix from Plantworthy Food. (www.plantworthyfood.com) This dupe for Hamburger Helper is so easy and very delicious! It only requires a few ingredients and is very fast to make. The leftovers heat up perfectly, so don’t be afraid to make extra for the next day.
