When friends give you avocados, you never turn them down. Even if your fridge runneth over with avocado, or you’ve already made enough guacamole to feed a small country or your nearly-5 year old says, “Not sliced avocado again!!” at snack time.
You just find new and ingenious ways to ingest them. And to trick others into eating them too.
I give you: Creamy Broccoli Mac and Cheese (makes two very generous portions)
So simple it’s ridiculous.
Put water on to boil water for pasta.
While you wait for that, chop up about 1.5 cups fresh broccoli. And make the “cheese” sauce.
Boil the pasta (about one cup dry) for about 2-3 minutes, then toss in the broccoli for the remainder to blanch it. Drain all together. Mix in the cheese sauce.
Garnish with Smoked Paprika. (Especially if you liked bacon as an omnivore, I can’t recommend this spice enough…put it on everything. Trust me)
“Cheese” sauce- Blend all this together:
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
About 1/4 cup non dairy milk, or more to thin it out
Enjoy this with one episode of Clifford the Big Red Dog for a peaceful, mom approved lunch.
