Jessica Seinfeld, and her husband Jerry, host of the sitcom Seinfeld, have published a recipe and highlighted the process of making a vegan mac and cheese with the tagline “Quinoa, Quinoa, Quinoa!” The recipe is a variation on a dish the couple has experimented with in recent years. In 2017, the couple wrote about how their 12-year-old son and their daughter were delighted by the change in taste and texture, but they received a lot of pushback from their circle of friends, who were scared by the idea of eating away from their animal protein diet. In 2018, Jessica joined Waitrose, a branch of the U.K.’s grocery chain, in making her gluten-free, dairy-free mac and cheese at their Frankford store. The recipe has since gone viral. “I want to bring awareness to what’s out there, and my own experience is a perfect example,” Jessica told BBC this spring. “You have to read food labels, and look at how it tastes. It’s sad that some people just don’t do that. It’s very harmful.”
Jessica shared the recipe with People, noting that she used plant milk in order to preserve the nutritional value of the nutritional balance in the recipe. “I was inspired to make this mac and cheese when I tasted at the Quinoa Grill in NYC, which is 100 percent plant-based and uses all-plant milk,” Jessica wrote. “It was actually a little too creamy for our taste, so we replaced most of the cream with pea protein, boosting the protein and mineral content of the mac.”
