This is truly the easiest and tastiest vegan mac and cheese recipe I've ever come across. This plant-based twist on a classic is a creamy, cheesy delight that is guaranteed to satisfy your longing for comfort food. Tender macaroni meets a dairy-free cheese sauce, made from cashews, nutritional yeast, and a touch of turmeric for a golden hue. It's a crowd-pleasing sensation that proves comfort food can be both vegan and delicious.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups noodles (macaroni or any desired shape)
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • Assorted spices (such as garlic powder, paprika, or cayenne pepper) to taste

Instructions:

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine the raw cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and your preferred spices. Blend until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. If needed, add a splash of water to help with blending.
  3. In a large saucepan, pour the cashew-based cheese sauce over medium heat. Warm it up while stirring continuously for about 2-3 minutes until heated through. Be careful not to let it boil.
  4. Add the cooked noodles to the saucepan and gently toss them until they are evenly coated with the cheese sauce. Continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mac and cheese sit for a minute or two to thicken slightly.
  6. Serve the vegan mac and cheese hot and enjoy its creamy, cheesy goodness!

Optional: For an extra touch, you can sprinkle some additional nutritional yeast on top or add breadcrumbs for a crispy crust. You can also garnish with chopped fresh herbs like parsley or chives for added flavor and visual appeal.

Note: Feel free to adjust the seasoning and spices according to your taste preferences.
