A nutritious macaroni and cheese meal that is plant-based and packed with protein! A delicious meal on its own or have it as a healthy side!
Every kid (and adult) loves macaroni and cheese, but one thing it lacks is nutritional value. It is a carb and cheese overload, but that’s why everybody loves it. It tastes good, but not good for you? 😉 My mom makes the best macaroni and cheese from scratch. I remember when we were younger, she would add a veggie or two into the mix. ‘If you want mac n’ cheese, you have to eat these vegetables,” she said. We never complained because cooked broccoli or cauliflower covered in gooey cheese made them taste delicious! Thanks to Mom, my inspiration for making macaroni and cheese nutritious and without the cheese overload, resulted in this protein-packed meal!
This macaroni and cheese is the adult version of delicious (& healthy) comfort food!
I’ve tried a few plant-based mac ‘n’ cheese recipes on the web, but they always lack something. This sans-cheese sauce is packed with protein, thanks to the yellow split peas; plus, they don’t make the sauce gritty like bean recipes! This one will be on repeat this year and for many years to come! & now, I’m super excited for you all to make it and put it on repeat in your home too! Enjoy! ♥
