Broccoli Mac & Cheese

There are a lot of vegan mac and cheese recipes in this world. But like kitten rescue, Joy Division T-shirts and Beyonce videos, you can never have enough.

I’m working on a cookbook for beginners (out Fall 2019) and this will probably be the first recipe in the first chapter. I love this particular recipe for new cooks because the most important part (the sauce, duh) needs no cooking and takes about two minutes to pull together. It also has my favorite vegetable built it: broccoli! (Yes, I am that basic.) It’s chopped into small small pieces and available in every creamy, dreamy bite. The method is also really easy and contains every cook’s favorite words: “one pot.” You simply add the broccoli to the pasta in the last few minutes of cooking. So yah, this is a great place to start.
