Today I’ll be showing you how to make a really cool broccoli mac and cheese for toddlers, kids, and adults. I’m going to warn you, your mac will only be as awesome as your cheese is. Here’s what I really mean: not all dairy free cheese is created equally.
If you’re dairy free, I hope you have a cheese you love. If you don’t, I want you to make this cheese free mac and cheese recipe instead. It’s going to deliver the mouthfeel and memory of mac and cheese without the dairy free cheese some people don’t enjoy.
Now, for those with a cheese, get ready to have some fun. What I like about this recipe is that it’s easy to make, and a great staple for families with little kids. This is an easy way to add broccoli to meals without it screaming BROCCOLI.
Also! I think this pasta would be a great addition to the kids’ table at a holiday gathering. You can make it at home regularly so your kids are familiar, and serve it at a holiday gathering where there may be a lot of new foods present.
