Plant-Based Hamburger Helper

My schedule has been packed full of volunteering with plant-based cooking classes and working on the new e-cookbook. However, I wanted to get a new recipe to you all this week.

The hamburger helper was given as an extra bonus recipe in August for the private membership I started to offer.

If you haven't checked that out yet, you can see it here:

Each month I give five whole food plant-based recipes, extra videos, relaxing art projects, music playlists, and a live virtual cooking class. Plus an awesome community!

On Halloween, I'll be putting our first weight-loss recipe e-cookbook. I can't wait for you all to see it.

As always our membership recipes and the e-cookbook will eventually all be out to the public for free over time. I appreciate all the support you give me by just even clicking on this recipe.

I want to make this because I think it could be a hit at my house. My son is allergic to walnuts just wondering what you would suggest as a substitute.
