Eggplant cheese sauce seriously knows no bounds. I’ve made vegan mac ‘n’ cheese before using a cashew-based sauce and it really was amazing! But the issue with cashews is that they make recipes so heavy with their high fat and calorie content. Not that I’m a calorie counter, but I’m all for lightening up recipes when I can. Eggplant sauce to the rescue. This eggplant sauce is so simple to make – just a 10-minute roast before peeling the skin and adding it to the blender. The thing that sends this mac ‘n’ cheese over the top is the caramelized onions and the crispy breadcrumbs! While the sauce and noodles meld perfectly together, the addition of caramel-y, browned onions and crispy bread crumbs on top sends the flavor profile through the roof! You’re going to love this dish. Make this for vegan and non-vegan friends alike and watch their jaws drop after the first bite.
Mouthwatering Vegan RecipesThe First Mess »goodthingsgrowHappyolkshow to make your own teahello, friends! today i have a very special guest post for you from my dear friend christy from nordgrains! as our husbands work together, it wasn’t long before we found each other and became quick friends. she writes a fabulous blog on healthy living, yoga and nutrition (a must read!) and today is sharing with us how to make our very own tea. i’ve had several cups and it’s just about the yummiest tea i’ve ever had! Tea is funny. Tea bags are surprisingly easy to come by. My first purchase was a big handful of organic Colorado mountain mint. Always somewhere between hateful and grateful of our semi-arid climate here on Colorado’s Front Range, I did not wait long for my mint to dry. Tea tags? As I was reaching for my stamp pad, my hand brushed my button bucket. The final order of business was to examine the individual tea leaves, spices, and “things” I had collected and start crafting real brews. Nordgrains is about health and wholeness.
