Introducing the BEST vegan mac & cheese that will blow your mind! 🤯🤗🤪 Growing up, mac & cheese was one of my favorite things to eat, so of course when I went plant-based, I had to veganize this.😉I kid you not, everyone I make this for, both kids and adults, have no idea it’s vegan! 🌱 They come back for second and third servings, guilt free! You won’t believe what the cheese is made out of and how it can taste so creamy and cheesy!!🤤 Make this recipe with me on Pinterest TV! 𝑺𝒆𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒂𝒕 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒕-𝑩𝒂𝒔𝒆𝒅 𝑪𝒐𝒐𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑪𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔!
3 oz raw unsalted cashews (soaked overnight)
2 russet potatoes
4 oz vegan butter
1 oz lemon juice
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 oz nutritional yeast
¼ tsp ground cayenne pepper
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp ground black pepper
16 oz pasta of choice (I love Banza Chickpea Pasta)
¼ oz olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
2 oz panko bread crumbs
Easy Vegan Recipe | The Best Mac and Cheese:
Weigh cashews then cover with water and soak for at least 4 hours or overnight.
In my robot chef or on the stove add diced potatoes, carrots, onions, & 16 oz of water and cook 20 min/212°F/speed 1.
Meanwhile in separate pots, cook pasta according to package directions, and sauté the breadcrumbs until golden brown with some olive oil, garlic powder, and black pepper.
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.
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:)
