macaroni and cheese alternative

Okay,  whenever I find dairy-free alternatives that turn out pretty well, I’ll post them.  At least for now, since we’re still having Eli eat no-dairy as a food challenge for allergies.  If the challenge validates the blood test results, I’m sure I”ll be posting many more in the future!

So, macaroni and cheese.  A little kid staple.  Well, he can’t have the cheese, or the butter.  And really, once those items are gone, you just have plain noodles.  So, I boiled about 1 cup of elbow noodles, and then seasoned them with salt, pepper, and about 1/4 tsp. fresh pressed garlic.  They’re pretty good!  And, much healthier too.

That’s my dairy-free commentary for the day…

UPDATE:  also good?  Italian dressing on noodles. Mmmm…

  1. Ooh, that sounds yummy! I need a garlic press- I used one in Romania to show them how to make garlic bread- sooo much better with the real stuff! I’m looking forward to your dairy-free recipes!

  2. The link worked 🙂

    It sounds like you have a big job working out a new menu for your family. How long does the trial last for?

  3. Hurray! I’m glad the link is working!
    The official “trial” for the dairy products ends on Tuesday of this coming week. That gives us (counting today) 5 more days. However, yesterday late, and then today again, his poor nose has been nasty, and he’s been coughing again. So, I don’t know if it was coincidental that it died down when we started the dairy-free, or if I accidentally gave him something dairy and didn’t realize it.
    We do have an appointment with an allergist on June 4th. I’m hoping to get the skin-prick test done to get more information about what’s affecting him.
