I had a request to make a homemade version of hamburger helper. This recipe was kid tested an approved. So now it’s time to share it with you.
2 pounds of ground turkey (or Chicken or Beef)
1 box of whole grain elbow pasta
1 (16 oz.)Bag of frozen corn
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/4 Cup chopped basil
1/4 Cup chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, sea salt, cumin
1 Tbs flaxseeds (optional)
1 Cup of Shredded Cheese
1/4 Cup Cauliflower Puree
1/4 Cup diced onions
1/4 Cup of red, yellow and green peppers
1/4 Cup Organic Ketchup
4 Tbs of tomato paste
In a small bowl combine flaxseeds, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, smoked paprika, black pepper and salt.
Boil 4 cups of water in a pot. once the water is at a boil add the elbow pasta until al dente and drain water. Set aside for now.
On medium heat, in a large sauce pan add the ground turkey. As the meat is browning, break up the meat as it cooks. Once all the pink is gone add your seasonings, corn, garlic, onions, green peppers, basil, cilantro and cauliflower puree. Stir to evenly combine. Now add tomato paste and ketchup. Stir to incorporate. Now add the cheese and stir to incorporate.
Once the cheese is melted and incorporated well. Add your elbow pasta to a large bowl. Add the meat mixture in the bowl and combine everything evenly.
Now it’s time to enjoy.
Until Next Time,
