A new video entitled ?Macaroni and Cheese GFCF? is available on the Alternative Cook Channel on You Tube to show how to make it. Finally, a recipe that tastes just like the ?real thing? but without gluten, dairy and casein! People with Celiac disease, gluten intolerance and Autism avoid these ingredients.
This recipe features a lovely combination of flavors using umeboshi plum vinegar, a salty condiment made from pickled plums. It calls for nutritional yeast which is grown on molasses and pasteurized to ?kill? the yeast. It is full of B vitamins and adds a ?cheesy? taste. Raw cashews as the base for the cheese sauce. It is remarkable how much this tastes like the real thing. The recipe is embedded in the video, so it is easy to follow along on your portable device, or for a written version of the recipe, please visit Ask Jean blog.
