Broccoli Macaroni & Cheese

Hey fam!

Tonight I decided that macaroni was in our future, but how dare we eat a calorie dense low nutrient dinner. So why not just add some veggies to a well-known popular dish, which also happens to be a favorite of mine ever since I was a child. Who says that you can't add broccoli to macaroni and cheese. Actually, I don't recall anyone saying that, so in that case let us create!

  • Water
  • Andean Dream elbow noodles
  • chopped onion
  • chopped bell pepper
  • chopped garlic cloves
  • chopped broccoli
  • pink himalayan salt
  • black pepper
  • Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning
  • rosemary
  • oregano
  • Violife Vegan Cheddar cheese
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • granulated garlic


  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil, add pink himalayan salt and noodles. Stir periodically so that noodles do not stick.
  2. In a skillet, over medium/medium low heat, add chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, and chopped garlic cloves. Sautee for about 3 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften. Add water or vegetable broth 1 Tablespoon at a time as needed to keep the vegetables from sticking to the pan.
  3. Add chopped broccoli, pink himalayan salt, black pepper, Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning, rosemary, and oregano. Cook for about another 3-5 minutes until.
  4. Drain most of the water from the noodles leaving about a cup of water in the pot. 
  5. Over medium-low heat, add Violife Vegan Cheddar cheese and nutritional yeast. If needed add more water/vegetable broth or nutritional yeast until a cheesy texture is achieved.
  6. Add sautéed vegetables and stir. If needed add pink himalayan salt and black pepper to taste.
  7. Plate and enjoy your meal!
