Vegan Beef Macaroni

The Chef: Liz

The Menu: A new dish that Liz dubbed "Herbivore Helper." Yes, this hearty main course was reminiscent of a certain other "helper," but far more cruelty-free and delicious. Liz used our standby, stellar mac 'n' cheese recipe as a start for this yummy dish, and added a beefy bonus using Harmony Valley Vegetarian Hamburger Mix. With sides of ketchup and actual vegetables in the form of salad, our plates were complete.

The Goods: We'll cut right to the chase: the winner of a bran-spankin' new copy of Viva Vegan from yesterday's giveaway is Ashley! Congrats to one of our favorite gals from Fat Bottom Bakery; it's always nice when a random number generator selects someone who happens to be awesome for a prize! (Though, to be fair, we typically assume that anyone who comments on this blog is fantastic.) Ashley, send us an email, and we'll get your book shipped right out!

Is that all there is to it: just add a packet of HV's burger mix to the mac-n-cheese and bake?

I already know I'd go back for seconds of that.

Ms. Veggie,

Yep, that's it! Liz prepared the burger mix (you just have to add water and let it sit for about 15 minutes), then added it to our trusty mac 'n' cheese and baked!

We all had seconds. The real question was whether or not to have thirds!

Hello VN food fairies! I couldn't find the burger mix, so I'm going to try using a package of LightLife Mexican Style Ground Round. It's on the itinerary for Wednesday night, so I'll let you know how it goes later this week.
