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. 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.
