I have always wanted to try making this. Whenever I see pictures of it online it always amazes how much it looks like cheese. I knew my biggest critic was going to be my husband and he really enjoyed this. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t taste exactly like mac & cheese. If you’re going into this thinking it will I suggest going to the store for a block of cheese now. LOL. Here is what you will need:
- 2 cups yellow potatoes
- 1 cup carrots
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
- 1tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1tbsp cajun seasoning
- 16 oz elbow noodles
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp red miso paste
- 2 cups water from the boiled carrots and potatoes
Start by chopping up your carrots and potatoes. Add them to boiling water and boil until soft. At the same time boil your elbow noodles, about 8 minutes or until al dente.
While both of these were cooking I added all of the seasoning to a bowl to make it easier once the potatoes and carrots were ready.
Now you will drain your noodles and set to the side. I used my ninja blender and added all of the potatoes, carrots, spices, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, cashews, water, miso paste, and oats to the blender.
You will blend everything up for 2- 2 1/2 minutes. Look at how cheesy it looks!
Once that is blended, pour into your elbow noodles, stir and season to taste. ENJOY!!
