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

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

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.


  1. That looks so creamy and delicious; adding broccoli is a great idea.

  2. Mmm, I'll have to try this recipe next! It looks so yummy.

  3. I may have to try this; believe it or not I've never had nooch mac.
