A few weeks ago I had to put myself in the mindset of a child and think about the things they would truly enjoy for my first ever kids cooking class. And to be honest, that was SUCH a challenge! Kids are picky! How the hell was I going to get the pickiest of eaters to eat healthfully AND enjoy veggies with so much flavor?!
I thought…hmm…kids seem to really enjoy mac n cheese. So, cleverly thought I could hide some veggies (ahem butternut squash) in the cheese sauce while also giving kids the option to add in their fave veggies. You’d be surprised, some actually chose to add broccoli to their mac n cheese and those who didn’t still got a dose of veg with the butternut squash hiding in plain sight in the cheese sauce.
For those of you who want a super cheesy but still nourishing baked mac, I’ve provided an additional version for your pleasure 😉 A little something something for all mac n cheese lovers, vegan or not.
