Mac and Cheese is one of the things I miss on the Paleo diet. There is nothing more comforting and reminds me more of home than this dish so I knew I had to come up with a recipe.
Now, Mr. Bejelly is picky and a texture person. He will not eat anything that is soft so I could not use cauliflower. I decided to try out Jicama in this grain free mac and cheese and it really gives this dish a sweet crispy texture that can’t be beat and works well with all the dairy in this recipe.
This reheats wonderfully and the smell is just heavenly when it’s baking away in your oven (Seriously it will make your house smell like a big hug). Even with Spring approaching the smell just took me back to Fall. I hope you like it!
