Below, she shares her recipe for healthy “farmers market helper.”
I grew up in Kansas, where the ultimate treat was picking out a new flavor of Hamburger Helper for dinner. I was always overcome with excitement at the prospect of a new, fancy box wielding a promising, delicious flavor. Of course, fast-forward to being a health-conscious cook, a box filled with artificial ingredients isn’t exactly my cup of tea. I always like to see every ingredient that goes into my food, and prefer a life filled with non-processed food. That being said, I often miss the comfort food of my childhood (as does my husband), so I created this dish as an ode to my favorite boxed meal! This is a gluten-free, farmers-market take on my beloved Hamburger Helper — chock full of veggies, protein, and a gluten-free grain instead of the traditional pasta. It’s a huge hit in my household and hope it becomes a staple in yours!
