Vegan Mac & ‘Cheese’

Awhile ago I saw a video on Buzzfeed for an easy vegan mac & cheese.

I’m always willing to try different recipes. It looked very easy plus I had the ingredients already.

What you need:


1 Carrot, peeled & chopped

2 yellow potatoes, peeled & chopped into 1 inch chunks

1/4 of an onion

1/2 cup raw cashews

1 tsp salt, garlic powder, & onion powder


  • I added pepper & nutritional yeast



  • Cook pasta

for sauce:

  • Add potatoes to boiling water for 2 minutes
  • Add carrot, boil for 5 minutes
  • Add onion, break it up – Boil for 7 minutes or until soft
  • Save about 1 1/2 cups of the water
  • Add cashews, water, veggies, & seasonings to a blender until smooth.
  • Pour over pasta and stir
  • Sprinkle with nutrition yeast, paprika, & pepper.

Did it taste like mac & cheese. No but it was still really good. I will make it again. Not going to lie I did sprinkle some mozzarella on top of a bowl the next day. Yum!  Will play around with seasonings next time I make it.
