  1. Macaroni turned out great. I had to substitute the coconut milk for almond because my grocery didn’t have it. Left the Tablespoon of salt out of the recipe because the sodium from the soy sauce was more than enough. When baked it did not have a crispy top. But overall the recipe was good and you should try it. Going to try it again with the coconut milk and put a layer on top to see if that will create a crispy top.
