Boy, do I have a treat for you?!? Have you ever had vegan mac & cheese? Us vegans are pretty much obsessed with veganizing everything, ESPECIALLY mac and cheese. I don’t think I’ve had so much mac & cheese until I went vegan… hah! I think this one is definitely the best one I’ve ever made – and it doesn’t require any “fake cheese”. Just some cashews, a few spices, some garlic and VOILA! It’s so creamy and delicious, you can feed it to your non-vegan friends and family and they probably won’t know the difference. PLEASE, I beg you to try this recipe because your tastebuds deserve it.



500g macaroni (or whatever pasta you prefer)
Vegetables of your choice (we used mushrooms)
optional: ground pepper, paprika

Sauce ingredients:
1.5 cups raw cashews
1/2 cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk or water)
1/4 cup water (or more if needed)
3 cloves garlic (minced/chopped)
1-2 tsp sea salt or regular salt
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 – 1 tbsp english mustard or any other mustard
Juice of 1 whole lemon
1 tsp ground cayenne
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp garlic powder (we like garlic)

– Soak the cashews overnight OR you can put the cashews in a pot with water, bring it to a boil and then let it boil for about 15 minutes on medium to low heat or until they become soft enough to blend.
– Cook the pasta
– While the pasta is cooking, chop up and cook mushrooms and/or whatever vegetables of your choice
– Sautee garlic (minced/chopped) on frying pan with water or oil
– Once the cashews are finished, put them in a blender and blend them a bit so they are in smaller pieces
– Add the rest of the sauce ingredients into the blender and blend until soft. Add more water to help blend if necessary.
– Pour the sauce on top of the cooked pasta, add the mushrooms/vegetables and mix together. Add a pinch of paprika and a bit of ground black pepper on top and enjoy!!!
