This easy recipe turns an old favorite into a fun & wholesome hand-held meal! It is a great way to sneak veggies into your kids! Instead of broccoli, you may substitute just about any vegetable you like… even leftover veggies. If using cooked veggies, reduce the water to 1/3 cup.
Kiddie Mac & Cheese & Quorn™ Cones
2 tsp. canola or vegetable oil
½ small onion, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
1 cup Quorn™ Grounds
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
½ cup broccoli florets, chopped
1 box (6 oz.) Shells & Real Aged Cheddar-style macaroni & cheese mix (“Mom” prefers Annie’s Organic Macaroni and Cheese)
12 small wafer, flat-bottomed ice cream cones (1 box- 1.2 oz.)
Shredded Parmesan cheese, as needed
1. Heat oil in medium skillet over Med.-High heat. Add onions; cook, while stirring 3-4 minutes or until softened. Stir in Quorn™ Grounds, garlic, broccoli and ½ cup water. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated and broccoli is just tender-crisp. Cover to keep warm; set aside.
2. Meanwhile, cook macaroni & cheese as per package directions. Stir in Quorn™/broccoli mixture.
3. To serve, spoon about 1/3 cup of the macaroni, Quorn™ & broccoli mixture into each cone. Top with some Parmesan cheese “sprinkles.” Serve immediately.
Makes about 6 servings (about 4 cups Quorn™ mac & cheese mixture – 2 cones each)
