Recipe Ingredients for Karina's Best Vegan Mac and Cheese

12 ounce macaroni
4 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp rice flour
2 1/2 c coconut milk
1 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash minced onion
3 tbsp white wine

Recipe Directions for Karina's Best Vegan Mac and Cheese

  1. To pre-cook the pasta:

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and pre-cook the penne just until it is slightly tender but firm to the bite. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse it quickly under cold water. Set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and stir in the sweet rice flour (I like to use a whisk to do this). Cook and stir the flour for about 10 seconds, then slowly add in the hemp milk, whisking to blend the flour paste (called a roux) and hemp milk.

  4. Bring the mixture to a bubble (it will thicken as it heats) then reduce the heat to low.

  5. Add the toasted sesame tahini, nutritional yeast, Dijon mustard, golden balsamic vinegar, sea salt, a dash or two of Simply Organic Garlic Powder and Simply Organic Minced Onion, nutmeg and white wine. Add turmeric or paprika for color, if desired. Mix well with a whisk.

  6. Remove from heat and set aside.

  7. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  8. Pour the cooked penne into a 6-cup baking dish. Pour the cheesy uncheese sauce over the penne and gently combine. Sprinkle the top of the casserole with the gluten-free bread crumbs and halved grape tomatoes. Sprinkle with dried basil. (For the sensory sensitive, omit the tomatoes, crumbs and basil.)

  9. For individual gratin dishes, combine the pasta with the cheese sauce first; then spoon it into the gratin dishes.

  10. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, until heated through and bubbling.

  11. Serves 4.
