Vegan MAC & CHEESE!
CAN IT BE?!?
A VEGAN mac & cheese recipe that tastes BETTER than regular mac & cheese?!
You better believe it!
When I went vegan nearly 3 months ago, one of my biggest concerns was "HOW can I possibly give up macaroni, & cheese?!"
So I set off on a series of experiments to find the perfect vegan alternative to one of my favorite dishes of all time. & I also came up with a way to make this dish more nutritiously significant by using an alternative high-protein pasta.
Here is the recipe I developed. I made the mistakes so that you don't have to!
Banza high protein pasta 2 boxes
Almond milk (unsweetened plain) 1 qt
Garlic powder 1 Tbsp
All purpose flour 2 Tbsp
Earth balance vegan butter 2 Tbsp
Vegan cheese 1 lb
Nutritional yeast powder 1 Tbsp
Salt & pepper to taste
Shallot 1 (diced)
1. In a large 5qt pot, boil mildly salted water over high heat until it is at a rolling boil, then add pasta, & cook for 6 minutes, strain once completed.
2. Dice shallots, & sautee in 2 Tbsp of vegan butter over medium heat until translucent.
Add flour to the pot, and stir until thoroughly incorporated, and continue cooking, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, being careful not to scorch the bottom
3. Add almond milk, & garlic powder, & nutritional yeast, and simmer until the mixture has thickened
4. Add vegan cheese, & continue whisking
5. Adjust for seasoning
