Vegan Hamburger Helper
Dude I want to live on this dish. I’m pretty sure this was my first time having hamburger helper. Next time I’ll just go with the pasta & sauce and skip the beefless crumbles. This dish has just elevated my life.

I just made half a recipe in the video. Below is a full recipe. My half recipe filled the two bowls you see in the picture.

bag of beefless crumbles (I used beyond meat), 1 small onion, 1 TB oil, 1 ts dried parsley, 1 ts garlic powder, salt & pepper, 1.5 cup plain almond milk, 1.5 cup vegan beef broth (or any bouillon flavor you have), 2 cups macaroni, 8oz can tomato sauce, 2 cups vegan cheese + cornstarch optional

  1. Saute chopped onion with oil and salt. Once soft add vegan beefless crumbles.
  2. Add everything to the pot except the cheese and cornstarch and cook. Cook for the recommended time on the pasta box.
  3. Once pasta is cooked if there’s extra sauce that you need to thicken up add 1 TB corn starch to 1 TB cool water then pour into the pot. Boil the corn starch slurry with the food until everything thickens up.
  4. Add vegan cheese, stir and serve. ENJOY

Vegan Tater Tot Casserole

Vegan Trailer Park Sushi
I doubt this is a real thing. While looking for recipes I’ve stumbled upon trailer trash party themed foods. Again, I have a hard time believing this a real meal in someones life which a shame because it should be. Dude this was soooooo good.

Feel free to use any veggie hot dogs you want. I used field roast breakfast sausage because they’re small and taste good.

By the way, I’m obsessed with this vegan ranch recipe I got from Edyn Jacks Youtube Channel. Its the easiest thing on the planet to make. I honestly didn’t even know I liked ranch for I made her recipe.

white bread, veggie hot dogs, vegan cheese, vegan mayo

Ranch: vegan mayo, vinegar (pickle juice or jalapeno juice), spices (garlic, parsley, onion) & salt

  1. Flatten bread, cover with mayo, add a thin sprinkle of vegan cheese then add a veggie dog
  2. Roll closed like you’re wrapping sushi. Cut the edges and you’re done!
  3. Put as much mayo in a bowl as you want ranch. Add TINY amounts of vinegar to thin it out. Start slowly then add a little more til you get your desired texture. Add spices and salt to taste. ENJOY

  1. There was a thing in the 1960s that I know of and that was Mock Apple Pie. Maybe it was invented in the 1930s as a low-cost Depression treat. It was made from Ritz crackers doing the substitution for the apples. Kinda strange to think about now because Ritz are way more expensive than apples.

  2. The toffee cracker things are totally real!! My cousin’s mom made them all the time and called them “Homemade Heath Bars”. They were fucking awesome! Now I need them. So bad. I totally just found the recipe saved in my Google Drive because I begged for it years ago and totally forgot about it. Look!
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Foil line a cookie sheet lightly greased.
    Line with 40 saltine crackers.
    Melt 2 sticks margarine.
    1 cup brown sugar.
    Boil 3 minutes over medium heat.
    Pour on crackers and spread w/spoon.
    Bake 4 – 5 minutes.
    Sprinkle 12 oz chocolate chips on top.
    Let set 1 – 2 minutes (so chocolate melts)
    Spread w/spoon & refrigerate.

    Nuts can be added if desired.

    Don’t tell my cousin’s mom I gave it to you. 😉

    • dude that’s the same recipe!!!!!! hahahahhaha that makes me so pumped for life 🙂 Like I said, I still have 3 sleeves of crackers left…. I should make MORE!!!

  3. I find the gardein beef crumbles are a lot better than the beyond beef ones and a much better buy. Or you can just order 5lbs of textured vegetable protein off Amazon for $22 (Hoosier Hill Farms). That bag of tvp lasts me 6 months easy.

    • I have a soy allergy. i don’t mind soy bean oil or soy sauce. I think soy protein is the issue which explains all the seitan recipes on the blog 🙂 But thanks for the tips! That sounds like an ideal thing! $22 for 5 lb! So cheap
