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!)
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.
