MAC + CHEEZE PLEASE (gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free, vegan)

HOLD UP, WAIT A MINUTE, LET US PUT SOME CARROTS IN IT...errr what?

YES! Carrots + Potatoes + GoGo Quinoa Super Grains Fusilli Pasta is just about the best damn thing in the world. Alright, so it's a little bit more involved than that, but not by much.

The GoGo Quinoa Super Grains Fusilli Pasta is organic, gluten-free and made with sorghum flour (rich in antioxidants and iron), quinoa flour, amaranth flour and chia flour. That's IT! Nothing else :) If you follow me on Instagram you have also probably heard me rave about their Puffed Crisp Cereals as I'm totally obsessed with putting it on top of my Banana Bowls (or shoveling it in my mouth by the handful). GoGo Quinoa is sold at Costco's all over California and not only are their products amazing, but the integrity of the company is something you don't see very often these days. I was so excited to partner with GoGo Quinoa on this post and hope you guys love this Mac + Cheeze as much as I do!

This recipe is low sodium which means salt lovers may want to add a bit more. And obviously this recipe doesn't taste exactly like regular cheese... but its healthy AF, creamy & delicious in it's own right.  The quantities listed above make Cheeze Sauce for DAYS, so if you want to make a smaller batch cut the ingredients in half.
