Vegan Mac 'n "Trees"
Even vegan moms try to sneak veggies into their kids' food! Pictured is a new recipe for Macaroni and "Trees".
My 4-year old affectionately calls broccoli 'baby trees' even though she doesn't show it much love! Neither does hubby, or the baby. So, I started testing this cheesy macaroni dish, first sneaking in green peas, and then 'baby trees'.
I again used Tinkyada's brown rice pasta, but used the Little Dreams shapes in this dish. The rice pasta doesn't fall apart as easily as pastas from other grains, and kids just love these silly shapes! But in case some of you need more serious food :(
...any small-shaped rice pasta works!
