Mac and Cheese- Dairy and Wheat-free and AWESOME!

Here’s my mac and cheese recipe…and yes, it really really does taste like Krafts!  It is, however, lactose and gluten free…

Tastes Just Like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese- Gluten and Lactose Free

16 ounces rice macaroni or penne
2 cup blanched almonds
1 small jar of pimentos, use juice and pimentos, do NOT drain.
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes, NOT powder
salt and pepper to taste

Place almonds in clean, dry blender. Blend to a very fine powder, stopping a few times and using a butter knife to go under the blades and mix.

Barely cover with water and blend very well, adding in water in very small amounts just to get the mixture to a very smooth consistency. Again, go under the blades with a butter knife and make sure it is blended very smooth.

Then add enough water and blend…doing so slowly until your mixture is as thick as heavy cream.

Add all other ingredients and blend well. Add to cooked pasta and reheat in oven until hot and just getting bubbly. You can add bread crumbs on top if you like.

Serves 4
