One of our team is off to NYC next week and the rest of us are very jealous! We think the American cuisine is one of the best in the world (if you don't care too much about your waistline)! One of our favourite dishes is the ultimate comfort food- Macaroni and Cheese
With Barkat macaroni and flour mix, gluten free followers can enjoy this American classic!
250g Barkat macaroni
40g Barkat all-purpose flour
250g grated cheddar
50g grated parmesan
*Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and rinse, then set aside.
*Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.
*Gradually whisk in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for 10-15 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot.
*Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted.
*Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep ovenproof dish.
*Sprinkle over the remaining cheddar and the parmesan and place the dish under the hot grill. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling.
Serve straightaway and enjoy a little taste of American life!
