Grain-Free Baked Mac & Cheese

I had to take a shot at recreating everyone’s childhood favorite; except this one is grain-free mac and cheese, and dairy free with the exception of ghee. Just because I live in my van full-time doesn’t mean I can’t get creative in my tiny kitchen. This recipes is simple to make and takes only a handful of ingredients. Best of all, it’s made crunchy with the help of LesserEvil Grain Free “No Cheese” Puffs.

Equipment

  • Baking Dish (I used a cast iron)
  • Blender
  • Pot

Ingredients (Organic, please!)

  • 1 box (12 oz) Grain Free Noodles (I used Tolerant Foods)

Cashew Cheese Sauce

  • 1 ½ cups Cashews (soaked)
  • 1 cup Filtered Water
  • 2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • ¼ cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Pinch of REAL Salt
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika (optional)

Crunchy Topping

  • LesserEvil Grain Free Himalayan Pink Paleo Puffs
  • 2 tbsp Ghee (melted)



Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 370 degrees fahrenheit

  2. Cook your noodles. I used Tolerant Foods and they call for 24 (TWENTY FOUR) cups of water. I live in a van; no way! I used 4.5 cups and it was perfect.

  3. While those are cooking, ad all your cashew cheese sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth

  4. Smash ½ bag of LesserEvil “No Cheese” Puffs (I walked on mine.) and mix that with 2 Tbsp ghee

  5. Once the noodles are cooked, drain and pour into your baking dish

  6. Add the cashew cheese sauce and mix well, top with the crunchy topping

  7. Bake for 20 minutes

This mac and cheese recipe is grain-free, soy-free and dairy-free with the exception of the ghee. If you’d like, you can swap that for coconut oil or avocado oil to keep it 100% dairy free. You can top it with some local chives for a nice flavor punch!

Remember, if I can do it in a van, you can do it in your home!
