How to Make Healthy Homemade Mac and Cheese

3 ways to make Mac and Cheese healthier with Saladmaster

Macaroni and Cheese is a classic childhood favorite that is easy to make, but also contains lots of fat and cholesterol. Here's 3 ways to make healthy homemade Mac and Cheese with Saladmaster

1. Make it vegan Mac and Cheese

In this video, Katherine Lawrence from Food Saved Me uses quinoa shell pasta, but any choice of pasta will do. In the Saladmaster 1½ Qt. (1.4 L) Sauce Pan or 8.6" Small Skillet, simmer non-dairy unflavored milk with vegetable broth, nutritional yeast flakes on medium-high heat, and use seasonings like dried mustard, paprika, garlic powder and turmeric. Once the sauce is hot and bubbling, whisk in flour to thicken the vegan cheese sauce. Then stir in the cooked pasta and serve. You can find the full recipe here.

 

2. Fill up on fiber by adding beans and vegetables to your Mac and cheese.

After sautéeing onions, peppers and garlic in the preheated Saladmaster MP5, stir in corn, taco seasoning, tomato soup, beans and macaroni. Cover and once the Vapo-Valve™ begins to click steadily, reduce heat to low and cook for 25 minutes until pasta is soft. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and your choice of chopped scallions or cilantro. Find the full recipe here.

3. Use less cheese and feature lean ground meat with a tomato base instead

For those looking for a Mac and Cheese alternative, Goulash is the perfect one dish meal because it offers cheese as a topping for macaroni paired with protein and vegetables. In this Saladmaster Sizzler video, lean ground beef, onions, garlic and bell peppers are cooked with macaroni, diced tomatoes and spices in the Saladmaster Braiser Pan. See the full recipe here.

Five Reasons to Stay Home & Cook This Weekend

Cooking, social, friends, lifestyle

 

The weekend is the time we reward ourselves for surviving long, productive work weeks. And for that reward, we typically default to a night out at a favorite restaurant with a few close friends. But maybe there's another way to unwind and treat yourself and your friends to an evening that offers just a little more. And maybe it starts in your kitchen.
