Hello beauties! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I just posted a picture on Instagram yesterday of the meal I made for my family. It was a total success, specially with my little nephew which means it definitely can be eaten by anyone! (Yes!)
The recipe is super simple, very low in fat and oil/gluten free. This fits perfect on a diet like rawtill4, the starch solution or low fat vegan diet. I’ve seen similar recipes before, so I adapted mine from Oh She Glows blog, though she still uses oil/vegan butter and many more ingredients that I feel are unecessary, as the recipe turned out amazing!
Gastrawnomica’s Gluten Free/Oil Free Vegan Mac & Cheese
1 box organic quinoa-corn pasta (I used Ancient Harvest brand)
1 can organic butternut squash puree, unsalted/all natural
1/2 cup rice milk, unsweetened (can use almond milk too)
1 tsp onion powder
Sea salt to taste
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 – 3/4 cup frozen green peas
4 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes, preferably organic
Start by boiling water for the pasta. Once ready, add the pasta and cook for 7-10 minutes.
Heat a pan and add the milk, spices and squash puree. Mix until everything comes together, put in low heat and add nutritional yeast, mixing constantly until the mixture is a little bit thicker. If it’s too thick add more milk, and if it’s too watery add more nutritional yeast. Try the sauce and add sea salt as desired. Once the sauce is creamy but not too thick turn off the heat and add pasta and green peas. Mix pasta with the sauce until everything is well covered.
Let it sit for a couple of minutes before serving. Feel free to top it with fresh herbs like oregano, basil or parsley. Even sprinkle some nutritional yeast for an extra cheese flavor.
Don’t forget to let me know how it goes once you try it, if you like it and send me a picture of your delicious creation to share with everyone on my facebook page!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
