Home Cooking: BEST vegan mac & cheese and roasted baby broccoli

IMG_0935

After many attempts, we finally found the perfect mac & cheese recipe! Using a couple of ingredients, this dish is easy to whip up and was super satisfying.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound of fusili (or your preferred pasta)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tsp almond milk
  • 2-3 TB Earth Balance
  • 1/2 tsp flour
  • 2/3 cup Daiya cheddar (They cost $12 per packet at Supernature)
  • 1/2 cup Daiya mozzarella (They cost $12 per packet at Supernature)
  • 1 tsp mustard powder (I did not add this)
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp onion powder (I did not add this)
  • 1 TB nutritional yeast (nooch)
  • 1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper (I like a lot of pepper, so you may want to taste as you go)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Method:

  1. Boil salted water in a medium size pot. Add your pasta and cook according to package directions. Then drain and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, get another pot. Heat over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup milk and Earth Balance. Whisk in the flour and spices. Bring to a gentle boil, until the sauce starts to thicken. Be sure to stir often, scraping the bottom or else it will burn to your pan.
  3. Turn heat to med-low and use a whisk to mix in the cheese. Keep whisking until cheese is almost entirely melted. I had to add that last TB of milk and whisk more to really make the cheese practically velvety smooth. It will get smoother when you add the pasta.
  4. Fold in your pasta. I let mine cook on low for another minute, just for good measure.
  5. Adjust any seasonings and serve it up!

We also made roasted baby broccoli $10 for a bunch, with a dash of olive oil, salt and pepper with some garlic powder and tomatoes at 180c for 15 minutes.
