Deceptively Delicious Mac & Cheese (With My Twist)
12 mins (prep 2, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
4 servings
This is a recipe I adapted from Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook about sneaking healthy food into recipes. It uses pureed chickpeas to thicken the cheese sauce as opposed to butter and flour. It comes together in a flash and is adaptable to many different diets. I serve it over gluten free pasta.
