Vegan Mofo#9: Mac and Cheese

I have been reading all these great Vegan Mofo post about Autumn Comfort foods which automatically made me crave squash, sweet potatoes and apple pie. One of my favorite fall, comfort food dishes is Mac and Cheese which was great especially paired with Hitachino Nest White Ale (beer).

Mac and Cheese with Zucchini and Mushrooms
  • 1 Cup Soymilk
  • 1/3 Cup Raw, Unsalted Cashews
  • 1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 3 Tbs  Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbs Earth Balance Margarine
  • 1 Tbs Tahini
  • 1 Tbs Red Miso
  • 1 Tbs Cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Large tomato, diced
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 box of short pasta (penne, rigatoni, ect)
  • 2 zucchini, Sliced in half moons
  • 8oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced in half
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350F.  Toss zucchini and mushrooms with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a sheet pan; roast for 35 minutes.  

To make sauce blend soymilk, cashews, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, Earth Balance, tahini, red miso, cornstarch, lemon juice, dijon mustard, paprika, garlic, tomato and black pepper. Blend until smooth. 

Cook the pasta, I like gluten free pasta or whole wheat. Drain the pasta and pour the sauce into the hot pan and slowly heat up; the sauce will thicken slightly.  Add the zucchini, mushrooms, and pasta- toss to coat.

    It’s so delcious and yummy- leave out the red miso (replace with mellow white if you’d like) and the tomato and you have an alfredo like sauce!

  3. I need to see a photo

  4. I love every vegan mac & cheeze recipe I’ve tried. I think anything with nooch (and cashews!) makes me happy. I love the addition of miso here. Bet it’s so tasty!

  5. What a yummy sounding recipe. I’ll have to try this for my teen who is having trouble giving up cheese. Mac and cheese is her all-time fav.

  6. It’s nice to know that we’re all sharing the same weather right now, even if we are on different sides of the world.

    It’s still cold here so a big plate of mac n cheeze would be awesome right now! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I’ve only just decided I like nooch so I will give this a go 🙂
