There is something so comforting about hot and creamy macaroni and cheese…I think it has to do with how much fat and carbohydrates there are in it 🙂 No joke! Many of the comfort foods we love have a lot of fat and carbohydrates in them because those are the first things our bodies crave when we are stressed out and need a boost of serotonin. Hence, the term “comfort food”.
While we really shouldn’t base our life’s diet on mac and cheese, it is really nice to have those creamy comfort foods every once in a while. Here is an easy, allergy-friendly recipe for Macaroni and Cheese that everyone loves.
I like to add slices of buffalo chicken sausage to mine, or you can add bread crumbs (gluten-free and whole grain, of course!) and bake it in the oven for a little bit.
This recipe is based on a simple white sauce with cheese added to it. This white sauce recipe works for home-made alfredo sauce as well, just skip the cheese and sprinkle in some Rice Parmesan. You can make this sauce thick or thin, depending on how much brown rice flour you add.
I love Tinkyada brand – it is the best I have tried so far. It is whole grain and cooks up al dente, not mushy or mealy.
