A few weeks ago Abe broke out with the NASTIEST diaper rash I’ve ever seen. (BTW if you have a miracle cure-all for diaper rashes, let me know.) I started using Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, which did help, but then I considered he could have an allergy to dairy as I was giving him more than usual. This meant I had to figure out how to make some kind of dairy-free mac n cheese, sans the “fake cheese”, which I wasn’t ready to dive into yet.
First I cooked the noodles and set them aside. Then I put half a cooked squash from the fridge in a pan with almond milk and organic butter (butter has very little dairy protein left in it, so it’s often digestible to those who don’t tolerate dairy). I smashed it all up and let it warm through.
Then I added some nutritional yeast to it. I’m not sure how much. Maybe 1/4 cup? It has a nutty, somewhat cheesy flavor.
Nutritional yeast is cultured yeast the is full of b-vitamins and is actually a complete protein.
I added a little salt, mixed it all up, and served it in a bowl with a fork. It was promptly dumped over, the fork ditched, and the noodles devoured with reckless abandon. Translation: he liked it. 🙂
In subsequent batches I’ve added some olive oil to the finished product for a nice sheen and sweet flavor.
