Chipotle Mac and Cheese, Sprouting tips

chipotle mac and cheese
I am entering a recipe contest and this is my submission. It is not vegan, although I will be creating a vegan version. I tried, but couldn't get it just right. It needs more work. When I do, I will share the recipe, because I think it will be delicious. This was delicious in a non-vegan way, but I am not really tempted by that type of food anymore.


These are my beans soaking for sprouting. I just wanted to share a simple trick with about sprouting.. knee high panty hose. I just secure them with a rubber band on an type of jar and use it as the screen for rinsing. I have the screw on lids for sprouting as well, but I sprout so many things that I run out of wide mouth jars, so this is what I do.

  3. Right now I can't imagine anything more delicious than chipotle mac without cheese. I do hope you perfect your vegan recipe of it.

    Good luck to you and your hand. I hope it heals quickly.

  5. THat chipotle mac & cheese loks magnificent. I prefer the pasta with little ridges (which you used); it holds the sauce better.

    I also make my sprouts in a jar and use either cheese cloth or an old (clean!) knee high. Fun to sprout frugally!

  6. Thanks for the comment you left me today! You're so sweet! I'd love to have had dinner at your place, especially after seeing those gorgeous business cards you made up! Veg chef! Woo!!

    Mmm, the mac & cheese looks so good! I like that kind of pasta with ridges, like UV said! The sauce clings! I hope your recipe wins!

    Good idea on the sprouting. You've reminded me to sprout more, since I tend to forget to!

  7. Your macaroni looks so pretty! I am looking forward to seeing your vegan version! I like your idea for sprouting! I have special trays for sprouting that I was given as a pressie, but we always used the jar method when we grew them as kids.

  10. Mmmmmh, chipotle mac and cheese... Good luck with the recipe contest. The presentation is very chic. Good luck with the sprouting, too. Although I often eat sprouts and things made with sprouted food, I'm not adventurous enough to try to do it myself.
