I have been on an odd mission as of late – meat (substitutes, of course), bread, cheese…. Hmmm… Well, here’s another number to add to the list. My children (and all children, I presume) love macaroni and cheese. I like things that are easy to prepare, but I don’t like using the box stuff. Oh, the conundrum. Well, all is resolved, and we are happily on our journey once again.

1 can coconut milk (don’t worry, you won’t taste it)
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
4 Tbs. nutritional yeast
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
½ tsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. turmeric
Pinch white pepper
Box of elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions

Put all ingredients (except for the pasta, of course) in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour over cooked macaroni noodles. Serve. I topped ours with sautéed kale. The kids ate it right up and asked for seconds. Did you hear that? I said it – they asked for seconds. That’s right.
