Well, obviously this is not cheese, but it sure looks a lot like it! It is a healthier way to have some mac and cheese, and I´m pretty sure you´ll enjoy it. This is a veeeeeery easy recipe and you can change some of the spices If you like.

INGREDIENTS: 

  • macaroni
  • 1 cup of peeled / or not  - yellow potatoes
  • ¼ cup peeled and diced carrots
  • ⅓ cup chopped onion
  • ¾ cup water ( use liquid from pot of boiled veggies)
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup coconut milk / soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes (this helps giving a nutty taste and vitamin B12 !)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (or more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder (or more)
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper / black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cook your macaroni al dente, drain, and set aside.
  2. Bring several cups of water to boil in a small pot. Place the chopped potatoes, carrots, and onion in the boiling water, and cook for about 12 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and soft enough to blend.
  3. When veggies are soft enough to blend, place them in your blender. Add ¾ cup of that cooking water to your blender, along with your remaining ingredients.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Pour sauce over your cooked macaroni noodles in a dish of your choice, taste for salt, and serve immediately. TA DA !
