One of the reason I love reading through blogs is for all the inspiration and recipe ideas. I am a pictures kind of gal. I don’t much care for recipes books that don’t have pictures. Why is that even aloud? A perfect recipe book, is one that shows me a picture of every recipe. Blogs are just that. I look around, see photos and recipes; it’s all gravy! So, The other day while I was searching for a dinner idea I saw shepherd’s pie here and macaroni & cheese here. I so, I did what any fellow foodie would do, I improvised. I made do with what I had and I combined both dishes. Plus, for an added challenge, I made it dairy free. Wanted to share with someone who is avoiding dairy right now
Here we go:
Prepared the cheese sauce. I made measurement changes, otherwise the recipe for the sauce was found here. I wanted about half as much as the recipe calls for, so I pretty much cut the ingredients in half.
Pretty boring here. I just heated some frozen veggies. The exciting part is when I added a bunch of fresh kale. I took a phone call during this step and blew right past the photo taking step. Sheesh people, can’t you see I am trying to take photos of my food like a crazy girl! Don’t bother me when I am cooking. Anyone else get distracted when they are in the kitchen? I have a hard time talking and visiting when I have company and am still trying to cook.
Topped with some salsa for good measure. This bowl then was mixed with more arugula a tasted super! It was a fun dish to make and is super filling. I will definitely make this again. It is one of those dishes that doesn’t need a step by step recipe to follow. You just make it how you like with what you have. I know that each time I make this it will be different. Maybe next time I will only use 1 sweet potato for the topping and polenta for the bottom layer.
