Vegan American Chop Suey
There is something about junky comfort food that I still crave every once in a while. I so remember eating American Chop Suey as a kid in the school cafeteria. It was made with all the stuff the USDA likes to dump on schools, nursing homes and hospitals’ ground beef, american cheese and elbow macaroni. Don’t even get me started on all the horrible “food” the US goverment gives to kids and old and sick people! Anyway, I made a vegan version the other night. This is great for you students to. Easy to make and quick and satisfying.
1 pound elbow macaroni
1 medium onion
1 medium green pepper
1 28 oz can organic diced tomatoes
1/2 small can tomato paste
1 package Fantastic Foods Taco mix
3/4 cup shredded vegan cheese
Cook macaroni according to package.
Sautee chopped diced onion and green pepper until soft. Add to pan taco mix and water (follow directions on box) and cook until liquid is absorbed. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, pasta and cheese. That’s it!
I think you could also then bake it with the cheese on top if you like it drier.
