Who else used to make hamburger helper? It was my go-to dinner when I was newlywed. It was easy! My cooking skills have increased a lot since then, and I no longer buy boxed meals. However, I do have “those days”. You know, those days when you have a new baby and nothing gets done, or a day spent following around a toddler tornado (me right now!). There are also exciting days where you have new lambs, and you spend your afternoon watching them hop around, instead of starting the dinner that you had planned. Those are the days I wish I could pull out a quick 20 min meal. If you are like me, you will value this dinner to be your nutritious “fast food”.
20 min Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe
This recipe is easy, and very forgiving. If you are just coming over to the organic world, this is the recipe for you.
- 1 lb hamburger
- 1 tbls chili powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 3 cups bone broth
- 1 package frozen peas
- 1 package einkorn pasta
- Brown hamburger with seasonings.
- Once the hamburger is cooked, add the broth, peas and dried pasta.
- Cover, and stir occasionally for about 15 minutes until the pasta is cooked.
- Top with a handful of cheese, a spoonful of sour cream or avocado.
What Type of Pasta I Use
I use Jovial organic einkorn noodles, the only ingredients are wheat and water. Homemade noodles would be delicious, but remember this is a quick, easy dinner. I have also used brown rice (gluten free) pasta, and you could also sub 1 cup of rice if you don’t want to serve pasta.
