Mac, Tutorials

Do you find yourself craving a comforting bowl of mac and cheese, only to realize that you’re out of milk? Don’t worry!

With a few simple substitutions and tweaks, you can still enjoy a deliciously creamy and cheesy mac and cheese without milk. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step.

Gather Your Ingredients

Before we get started, let’s make sure you have all the necessary ingredients for your milk-free mac and cheese:

  • 8 ounces of macaroni noodles
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of water or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (or any other type of cheese you prefer)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings:
    • Bread crumbs for added crunchiness
    • Freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color

Cook the Macaroni Noodles

In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni noodles and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the cooked noodles and set them aside.

Create a Roux for Creaminess

In the same pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and whisk until it forms a thick paste-like consistency. This mixture is called a roux and will help thicken the sauce.

Add the Liquid

Slowly pour in the water or vegetable broth while continuously whisking the roux. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes smooth and thickens slightly. This will create a creamy base for your mac and cheese sauce.

Introduce the Cheese

Reduce the heat to low and gradually add the shredded cheese to the pot, stirring constantly until it melts completely. The cheese will give your mac and cheese its irresistible gooeyness and flavor.

Season to Taste

Taste your sauce and season with salt and pepper according to your preference. Remember that some cheeses can be salty, so adjust accordingly.

Combine Noodles and Sauce

Add the cooked macaroni noodles back into the pot with the cheese sauce. Stir well, making sure each noodle is coated with cheesy goodness.

Serve and Enjoy!

Your milk-free box mac and cheese is now ready to be served! You can enjoy it as is or take it a step further by adding optional toppings like bread crumbs or freshly chopped parsley for an extra touch of flavor.

Now, even without milk, you can still indulge in a bowl of creamy mac and cheese whenever you want. With this simple recipe, you’ll never have to worry about missing ingredients again!
