Macaroni and Cheese (Gluten-Free)


Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese (photo courtesy of YoAmes)

Macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Whenever nothing else sounds good, macaroni and cheese comes to the rescue. I was so sad when I had to give up gluten and dairy and thought I may never get to eat macaroni and cheese again. However, I modify the following recipe to fit my dietary requirements, and it's yummy! I substitute butter for coconut oil,  cow milk for almond milk, and real cheese for Daiya chedder. Macaroni and cheese is very forgiving and it's almost impossible to ruin it, so feel free to experiment with the ingredients and substitute where needed.

Ingredients

  • Filtered water, pinch sea  salt
  • 1 cup gluten-free macaroni noodles
  • 1 tablespoon butter (or substitute)
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk (or substitute)
  • ¾  teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 2

I made this for dinner tonight. I didn't have cheddar cheese but did have monterey and pepper jack. I used half of each and had a white mac n cheese. My husband and I both enjoyed it along with Rice burgers and chili beans. A new family favorite I'm sure. Thanks.

Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew of an easy way to determine whether one's gastrointestinal reaction is to gluten or to fructan. Cheers, Lex

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...
