Last night my little guy couldn't sleep and so we let him stay up late watching cooking shows with us, and he said, "Oh, I want mac and cheese!" It was late and I wanted him to go to sleep, so I said, "I'll make you mac and cheese for breakfast."
This morning came, and I knew the rice cooker mac and cheese was going to save the day. And was I ever right! This is exactly the kind of easy recipes I was wanting to share when I started this blog, so here it is and I hope you love it!
In under 20 minutes we had creamy mac and cheese with slightly crispy edges just like baked mac and cheese.
Mix all ingredients in rice cooker and stir as well as possible. Then set rice cooker to cook and set a timer for 5 minutes. At 5 minutes, stir, and then set for another 5 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, stir again and taste (it may be sticking to the bottom a bit, just gently scrape away). If the noodles still need some time, give it another 2-3 minutes and check again. Mine took exactly 13 minutes total this morning, and it was PERFECT.

Each Tuesday I basically make the same meal, with pretty much the same method. This video was 14 minutes before I sped it up to 3 minutes, and that was the total time it took me to make dinner.
Not pictured is me placing the tacos in a 400 degree oven for 8 minutes while I made the salad.
We ate every last bit, so soon I realize I'm going to need to bulk this meal up, for for now it's just right.
Here are the products and gadget I used, in case you want your own. Pictures are links.
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
