Spicy Vegan Mac n’ “Cheese”

Ah, comfort food.

I remember eating kraft dinner when I was younger and I thought powdered cheese was totally normal!

Little did I know, that I wasn’t even eating real food…

This mac n’ cheese, tastes like real food.

…Oh wait, it is real food.

I mean, sue me for preferring to eat things that come from the earth instead of a lab…

“I will take my mac and cheese with a extra chemicals and a side of heart disease.”- said no one ever.

Spicy Vegan Mac n’ Cheese 

soy free, gluten free, low sodium, low fat, high in B12 and absolutely no cheese!

Serves 1

Ingredients:

-1 1/2 cups of corn macaroni pasta (can sub for regular.)

-2/3 cup of nutritional yeast

-2 tbsp. potato starch

-1/2 tsp. dry mustard powder

-1/4-1/2 tsp. of turmeric (I use 1/2)

-1/2 tsp. paprika

-1/4 tsp. of garlic powder (you can use fresh garlic as well)

-Dash of black pepper

-1/2- tbsp. of tahini

-1 cup of water

-1/2 cup of unsweetened, unflavoured almond milk (or more water, you really can’t taste the difference.)

Preparation:

Heat your water and bring it to a boil then add the pasta. While the pasta is cooking add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and combine. Drain your pasta once it is cook and on low-heat add the sauce and stir frequently. It may look water-y but thanks to the potato starch in just a few minutes it will start to thicken!

This recipe will give you more than your daily requirement of B12!

You see? Who needs cheese! I always used to eat Daiya cheese, and there’s totally nothing wrong with that, but after buying nutritional yeast for the first time, I was completely mind-blown! It is whole and unprocessed and has so many health benefits and it actually tastes more authentic. Go now and buy some. Do it.

Bon appétit!
