This secretly healthy mac and cheese soup recipe has hidden veggies, is high in protein, and is vegetarian (with an easy vegan option)! The broth is thick and creamy from blended vegetables and dairy-free milk. Only a little cheese is used at the end, and a plant-based version can be added.
For a vegan macaroni and cheese soup: make sure you use a plant-based milk and a dairy-free cheese. Almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or cashew milk are all fantastic options.
For gluten free, make sure that the pasta you use is certified gluten free. You can use any small shape you'd like!
To make a more low sodium version: cut the salt in half, adding only 1/2 tablespoon. And make sure to always use a low sodium broth or stock in your cooking.
