recipe: best baked mac n cheese

I first used this recipe when I was in need of a meat-free meal that would be big and delicious enough to feed my family. There are so many recipes out there claiming to be “the best” and while I haven’t tried them all, I feel as if this is one of the great ones! It has been slightly modified from Emma’s recipe on her website A Beautiful Mess. Feel free to try it out for yourselves!

ABM’s Best Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Ingredients:

2 cups macaroni noodles, cooked
5 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup vegetable stock
2 cups cheese (any kind), shredded
Salt
Pepper
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/3 cup green onion, chopped

Steps:

1. Prepare large pot with water and salt for boiling the noodles. Cook, strain, and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using the same pot, add the butter and garlic and cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Add the flour and continue to cook for another few minutes. Then add the stock and milk. Whisk. Next incorporate 1 1/2 cups of the cheese until it melts. Finally, add the noodles back in, turn off the heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.

3. Pour the macaroni and cheese into an oblong baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese, breadcrumbs, and green onion. Cover with foil and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Then remove foil and continue to bake for another 10 minutes. Remove and enjoy!

vegetarian spaghetti with meatless meat.

i am a vegetarian, and have been for nearly three years. that is not to say that i don’t miss meat. in fact, my daily menu consists of some sort of a meat substitute, generally at supper time. whether it is a veggie burger, veggie hotdog, or veggie ground beef, i try to incorporate at least one of these miracle products into my meals!! delicious, quick, and safer than real meat, i thought that i would share my vegetarian spaghetti recipe with you this week (and perhaps convert at least one of you into a once-a-week-vegetarian).

IMG_1

you will need:

1 box of spaghetti (whole wheat is best)

1 package of vegetarian ground beef

olive oil

vegetables of choice (i used a green pepper, tomato, zucchini, and parsley)

salt + pepper

tomato sauce (optional)

cheese (optional)

in a large sauce pan begin to boil the spaghetti. remember that whole wheat noodles take additional time.

meanwhile chop the vegetables and combine them into a large frying pan. cook over medium heat. add salt and pepper.

when vegetables begin to brown, add the veggie ground beef. continue to cook for a few minutes. (if you wish to have tomato sauce, add it now).

once ready, remove spaghetti from heat. drain and set aside. remove veggie mixture from heat. combine the two, add cheese, parsley, and voila!
