Making Vegan Mac and "Cheese"

Category Vegan
Macaroni and cheese is a classic favorite for many, but is not considered vegan due to the milk and cheese. Use cashews and flavorings to mimic cheese in this dairy free version.

I made this vegan dish for two very important people in my life; my father who literally thinks cheese is poison, and my best friend who is on a vegan journey for health reasons. It's very quick to make. The sauce is done in a food processor or blender in the same amount of time it takes to boil the macaroni. The taste is exquisite. I actually prefer this over regular cheese versions. I hope you give it a try!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg (12oz) pasta
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 1 hour, then drained
  • 1/2 cup water (more if needed)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder

  3. Blend the rest of the ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Start with 1/2 a cup of water while you puree. Add more if needed.
  4. Do a taste test before removing from blender. I decided I wanted a touch more garlic powder and nutritional yeast.
  5. Drain the pasta.
  6. Pour the "cheese" mixture into the bottom of a large serving bowl. Grate in fresh nutmeg.
