Now this is a recipe you're gonna love...
I don't know a single person on the planet who would turn down the quintessential comfort food -- mac and cheese. Well hang on, I've turned down a "typical" mac and cheese dish made with white flour pasta and cow's milk cheese because the belly bloat and inflammation is not worth it for me! I can feel my wrists getting achy just thinking about it.
But here's the thing, mac and cheese is as comforting as apple pie and ice cream. We can't possibly live our lives without this wonderful comfort food for freezing cold days and tough times!
This is why I created my own version of mac and cheese, joyous-style for all you comfort food lovers out there, like Walker! We made it together and he LOVES it (I do too). As you will see in my recipe video, this recipe combines Walker's three loves: pasta, cheese and wife. haha!
This mac and cheese is dairy-free, gluten-free and FULL of flavour! It will make your tastebuds and belly sing with joy.
Now that you know it doesn't technically have "cheese", trust me on this one, you'll love it all the same. Walker is a totally "cheesehead" (as I call him), just like my dad. Cheeseheads rejoice, you're gonna love this one.
Enjoy the video and the printable recipe is below and don't worry, for all the nutrition nerds out there I've highlighted the health benefits in my video.
I love sprinkling it with hemp hearts for an added hit of protein and nuttiness.
You can also add freshly chopped tomatoes (probably 1-2) or half a can of whole tomatoes to this recipe.
This recipe tastes really really yummy day 2, served hot or chilled. I love sprinkling my mac and cheese with hemp hearts for an extra kick of protein.
I hope this recipe becomes a comfort food staple in your home. And I will have a surprise mac and cheese recipe for book #2 because I have a version of this with cauliflower instead of macaroni! You're gonna love it.
