Shhh, don’t tell….It’s no secret that Macaroni and Cheese is a crowd pleaser among kids (and adults too). I found a way for kids who love Mac N’ Cheese to get their veggies in at the same time!
How did I do this you ask? By using veggies that are the same orange hue as the classic Macaroni and Cheese that we have all grown to know and love. I used sweet potatoes and carrots! I also decided on sharp cheddar to ensure that cheesy flavor still stands out.
FUN FACT: What is that orange powder that comes in your box of Macaroni and Cheese that magically becomes creamy sauce? Its dehydrated cheese! This means that cheese goes through a process where all the moisture is removed from it, turning it into a dry powder. Once you add the butter and milk to the mixture, it brings it back to life by returning moisture to it!
