Top 5 guilt-free cheese recipes


Cheese is one of those ingredients that I absolutely love to cook with – there’s never a shortage of things you can make and it instantly adds a punch of flavour to whatever you’re making. The trouble is, it’s usually not a guilt-free option.

That’s where Mainland Noble comes in. Unlike most cheese, Noble is a cheese you can actually feel good about eating. With 30% less fat than Tasty (even less than Edam) and all that delicious Tasty flavour, you can rest-assured that Mainland Noble is a better-for-you option. Seven years of hard work went into creating this special cheese and now it’s here for Kiwis to enjoy at home. And trust me, you’ll enjoy it – it tastes amazing!

While it’s so good you’ll want to simply eat it by the slice, make sure you save some for your cooking. Here are my five favourite recipes that have been made better-for-you thanks to Mainland Noble to get you inspired…


1. Fried Mac n’ Cauliflower Cheese

If you’re looking for a cheesy treat you can’t look past this delicious recipe for fried mac n’ cauliflower cheese. Seriously, how good does this look? But the best part is this fried treat is better for you than you might think! Combining the full flavour of Mainland Noble with quinoa pasta and cauliflower in a delicious sauce, coated in a crunchy quinoa and almond meal crust, this recipe ticks all the right boxes.


2. Cheese Taco Shell

Tacos are all the rage at the moment and now thanks to this clever recipe for cheese taco shells you enjoy tacos for tea without needing to sprint to the supermarket.
