No-Bake Macaroni and Cheese

No-Bake Macaroni and Cheese(Adapted from EW)

8 ounces Barilla Plus elbow noodles
10 ounces frozen chopped broccoli
1 3/4 cups plain soy milk, divided
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
3 ounces shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
1 ounce shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook for 4 minutes and add frozen broccoli. Cook until the pasta and broccoli are just tender, for another 3 to 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup soy milk, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

In a large saucepan, add 1 1/2 cups soy milk and heat over medium-high until just simmering.

Add the wet flour mixture to the warm milk. Return to a simmer and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in both cheeses and mustard - stir until the cheese is melted.

Drain the pasta and broccoli and add to the cheese sauce. Return to the heat and cook, stirring, over medium-low heat, until heated through, about 1 minute.


  1. This looks great, Joe! A perfect recipe for a vegetarian like myself..I will try this soon!

  2. i saw this recipe and just had to try it out - especially since it didn't seem especially heavy. i made it with cauliflower instead of broccoli, but it turned out scrumptious, as expected. i like the balance between the mild chedder flavors and the biting parmasean. thanks again!

  3. kann - let me know if you give it a try!

    aayesha - Cool! I can't wait to try this with Cauliflower now! Thanks!
