VeganMoFo Day 28: Mac 'n Cheese



I love mac and cheese, but I don't make it very often. It's a "treat," if you will. I usually just throw some nooch + soy milk + earth balance + salt/pepper over pasta and call it a night, but I do have a recipe that I like to make if I have more time on my hand. I found this recipe on the internet, I think the PPK, but I can't remember whose it is (sorry and thank you if it is yours!), and I changed it a little.

White sauce:
1/4 cup Earth Balance
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups soy milk

Directions:
Combine EB, flour, and salt in a sauce pan over low heat. When it starts to bubble, gradually add soy milk. Cook until bubbling.

Yellow sauce:
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 TBS cornstarch
1 tsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
spices: I used garlic (or garlic powder), onion powder, lots of pepper, maybe some hungarian paprika

Directions:
Mix together well and add into white sauce. Cook until thick and bubbly. Watch carefully, as it will thicken quickly!
Pour over pasta and I usually bake it for 20-30 minutes so it gets that yummy crust on the top, but it's good like this too.

I threw in some broccoli before I baked it to give it that healthy look.

Nom nom.
