A few months ago a shared a little concoction for mock mac’n cheese, which – if I’m being honest – was really just a way to use up yogurt that was about to go bad and the nutritional yeast I impulsively bought.
I bet you’re just dying to try this recipe now, aren’t you?
I’ve got to say, though, that the combination really did make for a delicious switch-up from regular mac’n cheese. So the other night I kicked it up a notch by adding chicken and broccoli, and the result made for a filling and easy dinner.
- 3oz chicken, cooked
- 1/2 cup broccoli, cooked
- 1 serving pasta, cooked (I used quinoa pasta)
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper to taste
directions: After cooking the pasta, place in back in the pot along with the chicken and broccoli and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Add the “cheese” sauce to the pot and stir until well combined. That’s it!
Where do you draw the line with mock meals? (for example, I just can’t bring myself to use portobello mushroom caps as “pizza crust”…)
