Vegan Mac And Cheese

An easy recipe for how to make vegan mac and cheese that even non vegans will love.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 3 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews or macadamias (for nut-free, try this Vegan Cheese Sauce)
  • 1 medium peeled carrot, steamed or roasted (80g)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, OR cheese style shreds as desired
  • 1 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water, plus more for soaking
  • optional 2 tsp buttery spread or oil, for richness
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 servings pasta of choice, or you can put the sauce over veggies or use it as a dipping sauce

Instructions

  • Completely cover the nuts in a bowl with water. Let soak anywhere from 2-6 hours, or refrigerate and soak overnight. Drain fully. Combine all ingredients (including 1/2 cup water, but not including the optional cheese-style shreds), and blend in a blender or with an immersion blender until completely smooth. Transfer to a small pot and heat to your desired temperature, stirring optional cheese shreds in at the end. Taste, and add extra seasonings (onion, salt, nutmeg, pepper) if desired – I like to add another 1/2 tsp salt and a pinch more nutmeg. Serve over cooked pasta, rice, veggies, etc.
