A HEALTHY “HAMBURGER HELPER” OPTION

Healthy “Hamburger Helper”

Ingredients:
– Noodles*
– 1 lb. ground turkey

CHEESE SAUCE:
– 2 tbsp butter
– 1 medium onion, finely chopped
– 1 tbsp flour + 1 tsp
– 1 tsp garlic salt
– 1/2 tsp sea salt
– 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
– 1 cup milk (or other milk alternative)

* Choose any noodles of your choice. We used a Chickpea elbow noodle that we found at most grocery stores.

Directions:
1. Cook the noodles as directed by the box. Set aside.
2. As the noodles cook brown the ground turkey in a saucepan. Set aside.
3. Prepare the cheese sauce. In a pot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in chopped onion and cook until translucent. Add in flour and garlic salt, stir until butter is absorbed into the flour.
4. Add 1/3 cup of milk and stir until incorporated. Add the remaining milk and stir until completely incorporated and thickened (about 5 minutes).
5. Stir in nutritional yeast and salt to the sauce, taste and adjust as necessary. Add more nutritional yeast for a thicker and cheesier sauce.
6. Pour over cooked noodles, stir in meat and serve immediately!
