Tofu Mac-n-Cheese

Mac-n-Cheese made with Tofu

Moms know that kids’ lunch boxes need to be packed with yummy and interesting foods to avoid the temptation of greasy cafeteria pizza! A great way to make kids the food they love and introduce their young palates to organic and gluten-free foods is to serve them tofu. As versatile as sour cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese, tofu adds a healthier component to many favorite recipes.

No kids can resist is a bowl of macaroni and cheese! House Foods has created the Tofu Mac’ n Cheese by adding their creamy tofu to this kid staple.

Serves 8

Ingredients

½ package of House Foods Premium Tofu Firm or Organic Firm strained

1 box elbow macaroni

3 tablespoons of onions

½ cup greek yogurt

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon mustard

1 teaspoon butter

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

dash paprika

pepper to taste

Directions

Cook and strain macaroni noodles and set aside. Sautée onions in pan until golden brown. Combine all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Mix cheese sauce and macaroni noodles in a large pot over low heat until all noodles are coated with sauce and heated thoroughly. Serve warm.

Note:  Optional: Serve with parmesan cheese for extra flavor
