Lilly’s Mac Tofu & Butler Chicken – low fat


Lilly’s Mac Tofu & But Chicken Dish -low fat

When you happen upon a free box of MAC AND CHEESE don’t throw the whole thing away, save the mac and throw away the cheese packet. In public housing and senior residences, outsiders come in and throw food about in spots, like they’re feeding pigeons, come and get it. Normally I decline, but why not use the pasta and throw away the cheese, since I don’t eat animal products. This is a dish I made for Lilly Belle and Me. The flavors are reminiscent of chicken and dumplings – only animal-free using macaroni in place of dumplings!

Makes 16 cups

TOFU VEG MAC:

2, 14 oz. pkgs. vacuum packed hard tofu, firm, rinsed and cut into 1/4-1/2 inch cubes

8 c. water

7.25 oz. box PASTA USA MACARONI & CHEESE DINNER – I threw away the packet of cheese and used only the macaroni

Notes: When I was a kid and visited my Nanny Kay in New Hampshire I loved Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in a box. I thought man-o-man this is something else; macaroni and cheese in a box!! 

It was easy and cheap seeings though Nanny worked in a factory sweat shop sewing shoes and was too tired to cook from scratch when she got home.

I loved Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in a box. I’d like not to have to throw the cheese pack away. 

Whatya’ say, make my day?


Notes: Don’t forget to throw away the animal packet.
