Okay, I get it. No one really craves cheese-less macaroni and cheese. All you’re left with is macaroni and… But this little number is something different. It has all of the delicious qualities of a standard mac and cheese, the gooey-ness, the creaminess, even the cheesiness, believe it or not, but without the actual cheese. I can see that you’re not sold yet.
White beans and cashews blended up together are what makes the consistency so cheese-like. But then it has all the flavors of a normal mac and cheese – dried mustard, onions, breadcrumbs, the works. It’s pretty much a win/win – a protein and vegetable filled, cholesterol-free (bonus!) dish, disguised as the comforting form of mac and cheese. You’re craving it a little bit now, I can tell. Make some and see if you ever go cheese-full again!? Okay, that’s not a challenge. Everyone loves cheese. But you know what I mean.
Calling all requests! I did a bit of spring cleaning this week. Great for the swim cap I thought I had lost 6 months ago. Bad for me realizing that I have over seventy cookbooks and magazines that I never turn to whenever I want to find a recipe. The internet has been my source for recipes and my cookbooks have been left for my bedtime reading (I like the pictures). But no more! I am challenging myself not to buy a single cookbook or magazine until I have tried something from every readable source that I have. And I need your help! Tell me anything you’d like to make – savory, sweet, brunch, dessert, vegan, gluten-free, really anything. And I will make it my mission to find a cookbook recipe, put my spin on it, if need be, and post as many as I can. Everyone wins!
