Homemade Garlic Mac & Cheese
Updated: Jan 1
2 tbsp of butter or butter alternative
1 tbsp of bobs redmill 1:1 flour or other flour of choice
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of finely ground Himalayan salt
1 cup of shredded cheese (opt for a stronger flavoured cheese)
5 tbsp of almond milk
1 cup of chopped broccoli
2 cups of pasta (whatever kind you like! I used Gogo Quinoa fusilli and penne)
Cook pasta as indicated on packaging, drain and set aside in pot.
Steam broccoli by placing in a glass bowl with 2-3 tbsp of water and microwaving for 5 minutes, then drain and set aside.
To make the sauce, start with melting your butter in a small pot. Once melted and hot, whisk in your flour to form a roux. Add the garlic and salt to your roux.
Add milk into your roux and bring to a simmer. Once at a simmer, stir in cheese until well melted and a sauce consistency is formed.
Combine pasta, broccoli and sauce in pasta pot and mix until covered with sauce.
Serve with cracked pepper and parmesan on top and if desired, add a protein such as chicken or prawns to create a full meal.
