"No Mac" 'n Cheese

Submitted by: FIT-WHIT

Introduction

A little lunch-dish I came up with when I was facing cravings for mac 'n cheese. Easy to throw together for one (or multiply for dinner). This recipe is best prepared when wheatberries and beans are cooked ahead of time.

This is a great satisfying meal to quench a mac 'n cheese craving, with the added bonus of protein from the beans and wheatberries, low-calorie swiss cheese, and a full serving of veggies!

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/3 cup cooked Wheatberries
    1/3 cup cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans, or other white bean)
    1 cup grated zucchini (with skin- about 1/2 medium zucchini)
    6 grape tomatoes, sliced in half (or as many as you like)
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp Olive Oil
    2 Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss Cheese wedges, any flavors
    Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

Heat oil in a small pot. Add garlic and brown until fragrant.

Add grape tomatoes, and simmer, smashing tomatoes a bit to cook thoroughly (about 2 minutes). Then add grated zucchini, and mix, cooking another 2 minutes or so.

Slice the cheese wedges into chunks and add to the vegetable mixture, and stir until cheese has mostly melted and combined. Then add in cooked wheatberries and chickpeas. Mix until well coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serving Size: Makes one serving (approx. 1.5 cups).
