Mushroom, Kale and Broccoli Mac and Cheese

I’m a huge fan of classic Mac and cheese but this time I wanted to sneak in some goodness in my daughter’s tummy. This recipe is simple to make, needs very minimal prep and very very nutritious.


  1. 1 cup macaroni
  2. 1/2 tub cream cheese
  3. 1/4 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  4. 4 tender stem broccoli
  5. 1/4 cup kale
  6. Few basil leaves
  7. 1 garlic clove, crushed
  8. Salt to taste
  9. 1 tsp Garlic powder
  10. 1 tbsp Italian herbs, dried
  11. Splash of milk
  12. 1 tbsp hemp hearts for garnish
  13. 1 tbsp butter to cook
  14. 1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Cook macaroni as per packet instructions or for 10 minutes in boiling water. Drain and keep aside.
  2. In a pan, heat butter and fry crushed garlic.
  3. Add broccoli, mushrooms, kale and fresh cracked pepper. Sauté until it’s well cooked.
  4. Mix in the cream cheese and add some milk. I added 3 tbsp milk because we are more inclined towards not so saucy pasta. Sauté for a minute.
  5. Add in cooked pasta, salt, basil, garlic powder and dry Italian herbs. Give it a good mix and let it cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Garnish with hemp hearts and serve.
