Below are the ingredients and the instructions on how to make Almost Guilt Free Mac and Cheese.
- 1/2 pound Cellantani Pasta (elbow macaroni or small shells pasta)
- 1 medium Head Cauliflower (chopped and roasted)
- 1 pound Chicken Breast (sauteed and diced)
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 5 tablespoons Butter (divided)
- 3 tablespoons Flour
- 1 tablespoon Coleman's Prepared Mustard (could also use Dijon mustard)
- 3 cups Soy Milk
- 1 medium Yellow Onion (finely diced)
- 2 Bay Leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
- 1/2 Lemon (juiced)
- 1/4 teaspoon Thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1/8 teaspoon Szechuan Peppers (ground – can use more to taste)*
- 2 Eggs
- 5 ounces Goat Cheese
- 5 ounces Shredded Parmesan Cheese
- 6 ounces Shredded Emmental Cheese (or Swiss cheese)
- 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs (or other bread crumbs)
- Kosher Salt
- Fresh Ground Black Pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit.
- For Roasted Cauliflower
- Clean core and leaves from cauliflower (you do not have to have any precision when doing this). Chop cauliflower into pieces. Pieces should be roughly 1/2″ – 3/4″.
- Place chopped cauliflower pieces onto a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over top of cauliflower and mix to thoroughly coat pieces.
- After 20 minutes, toss cauliflower pieces to brown all sides. Bake for another 20 minutes or until edges are browned.
- Remove from oven and lower temperature to 350 degrees Farenheit.
- For Macaroni and Cheese
- In a large pot of boiling and salted water, cook pasta until it is al dente. Once done, drain.
- In another large saucepan, over medium high heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Once melted, whisk in flour. Keep whisking to ensure that there are no lumps. After 5-7 minutes, the butter and flour mixture should be a light caramel color.
- Add the soy milk, bay leaves, paprika, lemon juice, thyme, garlic powder and Szechuan pepper. Stir occasionally for 10 – 15 minutes. The mixture should thicken up. Remove bay leaves.
- In a medium size bowl thoroughly mix eggs. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, slowly add milk mixture to eggs (temper the eggs). While adding the hot mixture to the eggs, make sure that you keep whisking. Once you have roughly 2 cups of the soy milk mixture in with the eggs, dump everything into the main saucepan and stir. Add in 3/4 of the shredded cheeses, and all of the goat cheese, and stir to combine.
- Add in the cooked, diced chicken and roasted cauliflower. Once these are combined, add the cooked pasta and stir thoroughly.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour into a 9″x13″ baking pan.
- Cover with remaining cheese.
- Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saute pan. Add panko bread crumbs and stir to coat all of the crumbs with butter.
- Top the mac and cheese with the panko crumbs and bake for 30 minutes.
- Let rest for 15-20 minutes before serving.
- If you really want to kick up the heat factor in this, you can add tablespoon of Sriracha hot sauce to the mix.
