Recipe Ingredients for Vegan Mac n'Cheese

6 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 1/2 cups almond breeze
1 cup pumpkin, canned
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup onion
8 oz pasta

Recipe Directions for Vegan Mac n'Cheese

  1. 3. Boil some salted water on the stove and drop your pasta for cooking as directed on box/bag.

  2. 4. While your pasta is cooking, add your nutritional yeast flakes, garlic powder, pepper, vinegar and soy milk to a large mixing bowl. Stir well.

  3. 4. Finely chop your onion and add it to the mixing bowl. Mix.

  4. 5. When your sweet potato is ready, peel off the skin and mash it well. Scoop about 1 cup of the mashed sweet potato into your mixing bowl. Mash it well into the liquid. You should get a nice thick creamy orange sauce. You can always add more liquid if you'd like a thinner sauce. And you can add more sweet potato if you'd like it super thick and a tad sweeter. You can even add in more nutri-yeast flakes for an extra strong nutty 'cheese' flavor.

  5. 6. Drain your cooked pasta and drop it right into you mixing bowl and fold in the sauce. You won't need to heat the pasta 'cheese' sauce separately because the warm pasta will provide heat. However, you can keep the pasta warm in a 180 degree oven, or re-heat in oven or microwave as needed.
