Instant Pot Gluten Free Mac and Cheese | Real Food RN

Hellllooooo comfort food! I have a confession to make, I used to eat an entire box of mac and cheese after soccer practice every day when I was in high school. An entire box! It was the only food that I would allow babysitters to make when I was a kid. To say I was obsessed with it would be an understatement!

What is more comforting than warm pasta with a creamy cheese sauce. My heart skips a beat just thinking about it.

But, going gluten free didn't allow for these kind of indulgences anymore. Then I decided to try making my own gluten free mac and cheese, to let my kids have a taste of my childhood favorite. The were hooked! I am always the experimenter, and my favorite recipe experiments are geared towards making recipes healthier, and quicker to make.

This recipe takes the cake! It's a much healthier version of my original recipe, and it takes 7 minutes to make! Winner winner, mac and cheese dinner.

Here is why this recipe is healthy:

  • Bone Broth: gut healing, great for skin/hair/nails, great for growing bodies
  • Heavy Cream (especially raw): full of healthy fats, great for growing brains. If you get grass-fed, then you also get omegas!
  • Grass-fed Butter and Cheese: again, full of healthy fats for growing brains

Feel gooooood about making this recipe for your kiddos!
