A year ago if you told me I’d be eating and making mac and cheese with no cheese- I would have called you crazy. Insane!

But I’ve realized that everyone’s favorite comfort food- can be healthy and still taste almost as good as the blue box’s.

Here’s my recipie for Vegan (yeah I said it) Mac and Cheeze:

vegan mac sauce
3/4 cups soy milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1.5 tablespoon Dijon  mustard
1/4 cup vegan cream cheese
1/4 cup soy sauce
6oz block firm tofu (try tiny greens farm at the green city market in chicago)
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cups nutritional yeast


Any kind works- but to really health it up- try brown rice pasta


Blend everything together in blender until smooth
Pour over pasta, and heat in oven at 325 in oven proof pan until hot
or bring pasta and sauce to a simmer over stove in a pot
