Take your mac n’ cheese to new heights with Almo! Our original unsweetened almond milk pairs perfectly with creamed corn to create a super satisfying and ultra-creamy sauce that’s remarkably similar to the original, only better for you. It’s loaded with plant-powered fibre and all the good fats you need to support a healthy heart.
The rich “cheesy” sauce is made with anti-inflammatory garlic powder and ground turmeric, as well as Dijon mustard and most importantly nutritional yeast flakes, which are one of the very few vegan-friendly foods containing all nine essential amino acids. Most varieties of nutritional yeast are also fortified with vitamin B12 to support red blood cell production.
Sweeter and milder than onions, the addition of roasted shallots deepens the flavour to this already sumptuous savoury dish. If you love your mac n’ cheese extra creamy, we recommend adding a couple of tablespoons of Almo Crème to thicken up the sauce. It’s also wise to cook with a cast iron skillet to keep your meal as healthy and wholesome as possible. We’ve used Le Creuset’s signature cast iron skillet from their new Meringue collection.
Tip: Throw in some seasonal greens too for added nutrition, like sautéed kale or asparagus.
