Vegan Mac & Cheese | Vegan Eats
By Makeful

Mention that you’re vegan, and often the first response you’ll get is, “But don’t you miss cheese?!” With this dish of ooey-gooey vegan mac n’ cheese, you’ll never look back to dairy! Rich, creamy, and bursting with all-vegan cheesy flavour, this mac n’ cheese comes with the added bonus of being packed with nutritious veggies. Treat yourself to a heaping bowlful, or two, or five…(hey, we all need our veggies!)

  • 1 cup yellow potatoes, peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, peeled & diced
  • 1 cup boiled veggie water
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tsp mineral salt
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 3 cups dried macaroni
  • add to taste Breadcrumb topping
  • add to taste cracked black pepper
  • add to taste crushed chili flakes

STEP 1: Cook your macaroni, drain, and set aside.

STEP 2: Boil the potatoes, carrots, and onions – once cooked, add them to the blender, as well as 284 mL of the water you cooked them in.

STEP 3: Next, add your coconut milk, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, cashews, salt, and garlic powder. Blend it all up until smooth and creamy.

STEP 4: Add your cooked macaroni to an oven-safe dish, and pour the cheese sauce over the noodles.

STEP 5: Top your mac n cheese with some breadcrumbs, chili flakes, and black pepper.

STEP 6: Stick the whole thing in the oven, and broil on high for 5 to 8 minutes, until the top is nice and crispy.
