Everyone loves macaroni and cheese. However, it’s not exactly nutritious or healthy by any means! This mac n cheese, however, is NOTHING to feel guilty about! It’s actually quite nutritious – albeit, still an indulgence! This is an excellent recipe to incorporate for holiday season to make sure you are consistently eating clean and not changing the lifestyle. Yes, it’s possible to enjoy a delicious and NUTRITIOUS mac n cheese and this is how!
- 1 16 oz box quinoa/rice noodles of choice
- 1/2-1 head cauliflower, rinsed and riced (use cheese grater)
- 1 12 oz block of grassfed cheddar
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Grassfed butter, for the baking dish
Cook the noodles according to the boxed directions. Rice the cauliflower and set aside. Shred the cheddar cheese into a large bowl. Now, mix all ingredients together in the bowl – the warm noodles should help melt the cheese! Add your seasonings and pour the contents into a buttered glass baking dish (approximately 11×9 inches).
Place the mac n cheese into your preheated oven (at 350) and bake for 25 minutes until slightly browned on top.
Enjoy!! **Note that you can also add chopped pieces of cooked bacon to this dish as well! Super delicious! Now go make it and tell me what y’all think! #cleaneatsforlife
