How to Make Super Green Vegan White Bean Mac And Cheese
One factor to keep in mind is to be sure to cook the onion, garlic, and broccoli completely without overcooking them. The onions should be just browning along the edges before adding other ingredients and steam the broccoli until it is bright green and tender, but it still has a snap effect. Be sure beans are adequately warmed up as they will blend more smoothly.
As for the noodles, alternative options tend to vary significantly in cooking times. I recommend staying towards the lighter side to make sure the noodles don't become mushy in the process. Test a couple as you reach the cooking time window and remove from heat to drain once tender, but still firm.
