MAC + CHEESE


Macaroni is a current favorite of mine. ;)

Get your fill of veggies and comfort food at the same time with this mouthwatering recipe {that I can take zero credit for and only my incredible husband can!}


Macaroni and Cheese With Broccoli


Ingredients

4 oz. dry whole wheat elbow macaroni (or pasta)

4 tsp. organic grass-fed butter (or organic coconut oil)

2 Tbsp. unbleached whole wheat flour

1½ cups unsweetened almond milk

1¼ cups freshly grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese

3 cups cooked chopped chicken breast, boneless, skinless {optional}

6 cups chopped broccoli florets, steamed

1 tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

½ tsp. ground black pepper


Instructions

Cook macaroni according to package directions. (Do not use salt or oil if suggested in directions.) Set aside.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.

Add flour; cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute, or until brown (don’t let it burn).

Slowly whisk in almond milk; cook, whisking constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until mixture thickens and there are no lumps.

Reduce heat to low. Add cheese; cook, whisking constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until melted.

Add macaroni, chicken, broccoli, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute, or until heated through.

Enjoy!
