GF CF mac n cheese

one of the things i have missed most about being gluten and dairy free is tasty mac n cheese. i tried a couple of recipes but none were quite right, so my lovely kitchen-savvy partner whipped up this recipe in the kitchen one night. we love it! maybe you will too

-preheat the over to 350
-boil a pot of water and add 2 1/4 c. dry gluten free pasta (we used bionature elbows)
-cook pasta until it is half done then drain and set aside

while the pasta is cooking, add to another pot:
-2 tsp. butter substitute
-2 tsp. sweet rice flour
-1 c. unsweetened hemp milk
and make a roux–stir until lumps are out and the mixture thickens over medium-low heat
-add a pinch each of onion and garlic powder–a little goes a long way
-add 1/2 c. or more 🙂 of cheese substitute )we use daiya mozzarella and cheddar)
-allow cheese to melt and mix into roux
-salt and pepper to taste

-pour pasta into the roux and stir until noodles are coated
it should seem a little too saucy–this is what you want because the noodles are going to need moisture to continue cooking
-pour the noodles and sauce into a small greased baking pan
-sprinkle more cheese and some gluten free bread crumbs on top
-cook for about 20 mins until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly

serves about 4

and if you are daring, the next morning you can fry an egg and throw it on top of the leftovers for breakfast like i do.
