Broccoli “Mac & Cheese”

It’s funny how a little pressure can make you come up with some really creative ideas. I had to make lunch for work in a hurry today and found the bag of broccoli slaw going bad in my crisper.

I’ve also been abusing cheese on the sugar detox, so I immediately knew what flavor combination I’d be going for ;)

This “pasta” is like a cross between broccoli cheese soup and Mac & Cheese… So good (for you)!

1. SautΓ© broccoli slaw in a bit of melted butter.

2. Add a splash of milk and simmer until broccoli softens.

3. Mix in a big handful of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and stir to melt.

4. Season with paprika, red pepper, and a bit of garlic salt.

Serve with leftover chicken or whatever else you can find! Easy!

  1. This is such a great idea. I usually make “mac n cheese” with spaghetti squash which is now impossible to find. I will try this one out for sure.
