Whipping Up Delicious Vegan Mac and Cheese at Home: A Recipe

Ingredients: 1. 8 ounces of macaroni pasta 2. 2 cups of peeled and chopped potatoes 3. 1 cup of peeled and chopped carrots 4. 1/3 cup of chopped onions 5. 3/4 cup of water (from the boiled vegetables) 6. 1/2 cup of raw cashews (soaked for a few hours if you don’t have a high-speed blender) 7. 1/4 cup of coconut milk 8. 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast flakes 9. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice 10. Salt to taste (about a half teaspoon) 11. Pinch of paprika or cayenne pepper for a little heat (optional) Instructions:

Step One: Preparations

Start by soaking your cashews if you do not have a high-speed blender, this will make them easier to blend later on.

Step Two: Cooking Pasta

Cook your macaroni pasta according to the instructions on the package until they are al dente, then drain and set aside.

Step Three: Preparing Veggies

While your pasta is cooking, add the potatoes, carrots, and onions into another pot, cover them with water, and bring it to a boil until the veggies are tender and easily fall apart when pierced with a fork.

Step Four: Making Vegan Cheese Sauce

Once your vegetables are cooked, remove them from heat but save about three-quarters cup of the water that was used in boiling them. Add these cooked vegetables along with the saved water into a blender alongside soaked cashews, coconut milk, nutritional yeast flakes, lemon juice, salt and optional paprika or cayenne pepper then blend until smooth.

Step Five: Combining Pasta & Sauce

Pour the vegan cheese sauce over your cooked pasta then mix well to ensure all pasta is covered in sauce.

Step Six: Serving Your Dish

Serve your vegan mac & cheese while hot with some freshly ground black pepper or chili flakes on top for added flavor if desired.
