Keto Mac & Cheese: Why So Delicious?
The cheese sauce! For this recipe we created a cheese sauce like no other (well, if we had to compare, this cheese sauce is similar to Velveta). With a smooth and creamy texture, our cheese sauce is high in fat, low in carbs and 100% delicious. With only a few ingredients, our cheese blend, heavy cream, spices and almond milk creates the perfect cheesy flavor.
All About Spice
For this recipe, I went for a smoky flavor – something you could eat with keto BBQ ribs and broccoli. To achieve this smoky flavor, I incorporated Hungarian paprika. Hungarian paprika is delicious because it adds a rich and sweet red pepper flavor (with a kick of heat!). Alternatively, you could use regular paprika for a more mild flavor.
Miracle Noodles Taste Good?
Yes! You read that headline correctly: miracle noodles that actually taste good.
Generally when cooking with miracle noodles, you’ll notice a “smell”. This smell can be completely eliminated with a quick boil! Boiling miracle noodles removes the smell, and gives the noodles a much softer texture similar to traditional pasta.
