It’s cheesy. It’s creamy. And, for most people (my sister, cough cough), Mac and cheese is certainly dreamy. Even before my celiac diagnosis, however, I wasn’t a huge pasta junkie. So, for nearly two years, mac and cheese left my plate and my mind. Until a cold windy night a few weeks ago when the idea of a dairy and gluten-free mac and cheese transformed into a craving. And then a reality.
Like a modern Frankenstein, I researched several recipes, picking apart aspects and combining them until I created the ultimate cheesy treat. The creamy sauce melts on the ingredients (and your taste buds). The recipe is easily adaptable (being Paleo, vegan and low fodmap friendly!) and quick to prepare ahead and whip up after a busy day of work or college classes. And, unlike Mom’s traditional mac, mine is packed with multiple servings of vegetables to create a healthy splurge!
