Mac and Cheese is almost iconic. Although it’s considered “American fast food” it sure has found its way over the big sea and to Europe. As I am a HUGE fan of delicious food I cannot seem to stand unhealthy “quick” options. So here’s my take on a super creamy Mac and Cheese. Not only vegan but also completely glutenfree! And it’s one of the few recipes everybody in our family loves, no exceptions.
I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as we do ?
The creamiest vegan Mac and Cheese. Fully vegan and gluten-free
- 300 ml water
- 50 g cashews
- 30 g vegan parmesan
- 3 medium sized potatoes
- 2 large carrots
- 1 medium sized onion
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp vegetable broth powder
- 1 tsp bell pepper powder
- salz and pepper to taste
Wash and cut the potatoes and carrots into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
Peel and cut the onion in bite sized pieces (we'll blend it later. No need for them to be diced into super small pieces).
Take a medium sized pot. Gently heat up the olive oil in it. Add carrots, potatoes and onion. Let fry for a few minutes while stirring. This will add a very nice flavor to the sauce.
Deglaze with about 300 ml of water. Add the vegetable both now. Bring to boil.
Set to a lower setting and let simmer slightly for about 10 minutes.
Cook your pasta as it says on the package. Take gluten-free pasta to make this dish gluten-free.
Cook the cashews in the meantime. Yes, thats correct. We want the nuts to be soft. Just as if we'd soaked them.
Simply add the to a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
Drain the cashews and add to your blender. Add the vegetables INCLUDING the broth. Add all the remaining ingredients. Blend at maximum speed until super creamy.
Once ready, drain your pasta. Cover with vegan cheese sauce. Et voila your vegan Mac and Cheese is ready! Enjoy.
