Guest Blogger: Air Eater

10 Nov

What happens when I run out of guest bloggers and don’t have time to write a review? I use one of my posts from Air Eater. In case you don’t know, I have a gluten free vegan blog called Air Eater. I do not have celiac, my husband @MathieuLLF does and to avoid contamination I support his non-gluten lifestyle. I blog about my love of food, packaging and have the occasional rant. Hope you like this post. Welcome to me? 😉

If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ll know I am a big fan of Korean sweet potato noodles. Like a BIG fan. I got adventurous today and decided to make my own version of Korean Mac N Cheese. How do you make such a thing you ask?

Here’s how!

Boil 1/2 a package of Sweet potato noodles, or the whole thing, usually they’re rather large; up to you. While the noodles are boiling in hot water start making your ‘cheese sauce’.

I used Bob’s Red Mill recipe: I replaced the regular flour with GF flour
1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup Cornstarch
2 Tb Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Yellow Mustard
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 cup of water at the beginning
1 cup of water after bubbling/thickening

The instructions are to add the dry and then the wet slowly, but do you think I listened? I didn’t even read that far, I just dumped everything and turned the burner on. Then I noticed after it was bubbling it started to get very thick, I was wisking the whole time, so I noticed the change, then I added the second cup of water. Clearly this recipe is fool proof because the cheese sauce turned out great. I would suggest reading the actual recipe directions, but if you’re a silly like me it still works out. Mind you, you can’t have the heat on too high or you’re apt to burn the whole thing. Medium heat and constant stirring.

Drain the boiled noodles, add some of the sauce and stir together, voila! You can thank me below. Trust me on this, you have to make it to appreciate it. On the right I included the noodles minus the cheese sauce so you can see the contrast before and after.

vegan, gluten free, aireater.comHappy eating!

    Which GF flour did you use? I’ve never tried those noodles, are they the same as the shirataki?

      I used Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free flour. These noodles are not the same as Shirataki, they’re sweet potato noodles. Totally different texture and taste. I’d recommend looking for them in an Asian grocery store, preferably Korean if you can find it. They’re elastic almost and gummy, but totally amazing.
