Recipe – Vegan Mac and Cheese

20160116_135312-01

If you love cheesey, creamy pasta but are lactose-intolerant or vegan, then this is the recipe for you!!  I can’t believe I didn’t learn about Nutritional Yeast earlier, but I am so grateful that my dietitian told me about it now.  This simple ingredient has an unbelievable amount of benefits that you’d never have imagined.  Check out it’s amazing-ness HERE.

Vegan Mac & Cheese

Approximately 2 servings

In a pot, mix the following at medium temperature:

  • 1 tsp Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • Bit of FlavorGod “Everything Spicy” Seasoning
  • Bit of Taco Seasoning
  • Chopped up Broccoli or Spinach
  • Corn niblets

In a separate pot, cook your pasta of choice.  We usually go with gluten-free brown rice pasta as it feels a bit lighter, is healthier, and doesn’t feel grainy like whole wheat pasta.

Drain pasta and stir sauce in.  If it’s too watery, add a bit of cornstarch.

Serve and enjoy!

This recipe is super flexible so you can use more/less Nutritional Yeast, add in different seasonings, add different veggies, add chicken or other protein…you can really make it your own creation!  Let me know in the comments below if you discover new and yummy varieties of this pasta recipe.
