Another week, another batch of mac n cheese! This version is from one of the cookbooks I received for Christmas, Chloe Coscarelli’s Chloe’s Kitchen. I really wanted it for the salt and vinegar french fries – but, seeing as I don’t currently have any malt vinegar on hand, I’ll have to settle for macaroni and cheese instead.

Compared to some of the other mac & cheese recipes I’ve tried, this one is so-so. For a baked dish, it’s not as dry as you’d expect, which is a bonus. But super-cheesy stove top mac and cheese is still the way to go, imho. I like my mac and cheese saucy, yo!

BUT. The taste is a little understated for me. Aside from the nooch and garlic powder, there aren’t many seasonings to be had. A little thyme or basil would go a long way.

Not a bad recipe, but far from the best I’ve ever had – even excepting my own super-unhealthy, over-processed version. Just off the top of my head, I prefer those in American Vegan Kitchen and Veganomicon. Mac Daddy, mmmmmmm

Erm, not to imply that I’d turn my nose up at the Best-Ever Baked Macaroni and Cheese if you offered to make it for me, nosiree.
