It involves the same basic recipe of macaroni and cheese with a sweet and salty addition of some fibrous vegetables like broccoli florets, sliced onions and some mushrooms. All these vegetables are tossed in maple soy sauce mix and grilled to perfection. All of this is tossed inside a creamy macaroni and cheese sauce.
