  • 3 oz raw unsalted cashews (soaked overnight)

  • 2 russet potatoes

  • 2 carrots

  • 1 onion

  • 1 oz lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

  • 1 oz nutritional yeast

  • ยผ tsp ground black pepper

  • 16 oz pasta of choice (I love Banza Chickpea Pasta)

Easy Vegan Recipe | The Best Mac and Cheese:

  1. Weigh cashews then cover with water and soak for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  2. In my robot chef or on the stove add diced potatoes, carrots, onions, & 16 oz of water and cook 20 min/212ยฐF/speed 1.

  3. Meanwhile in separate pots, cook pasta according to package directions, and sautรฉ the breadcrumbs until golden brown with some olive oil, garlic powder, and black pepper.

  4. If not using my robot chef, transfer cooked veggies & water to a blender. Add the drained & rinsed cashews, vegan butter, lemon juice, mustard, nutritional yeast, cayenne powder, paprika, & black pepper, then blend 1 min/speed 7 or until completely smooth.

  5. Pour cheese mixture over your favorite pasta and generously sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Serve with a side salad for a perfectly satisfying meal! Store any leftovers in a glass storage container in the freezer, so when your have another mac & cheese craving just reheat and eat:)
