So sorry for taking so long to post this recipe. I know many of you have been waiting for it since I posted the video in my youtube channel.
This recipe besides being super simple, is absolutely delicious and it’s crazy how similar it tastes to mac & cheese. The texture hits the spot and you totally feel like you’re eating some not so healthy, super cheesy pasta!
For the recipe I used quinoa pasta, I always go for gluten free, but feel free to use any pasta of your choice, just try to make it whole grain based and not white.
Gastrawnomica’s Oil & Gluten Free Vegan Mac & Cheese
1 package of quinoa pasta, cooked
1 cup steamed carrots
2 cups steamed potatoes, peeled
1 1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp tahini
1 tsp onion powder
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Blend all your ingredients except pasta on a high speed blender, adding water slowly until you reach a very creamy and thick consistency. You don’t want it to be very soupy, add water as needed.
Heat a medium-large saucepan an put on medium heat. Add sauce and warm a little bit, mixing while you heat add the cooked pasta and mix well.
Make sure to cover well and turn heat off. Feel free to add more vegetables like peas, broccoli, mushrooms, basil.. Or just serve it traditionally and top with some fresh herbs or cherry tomatoes like I did.
This will keep on the fridge up to 5-6 days. It will also firm up more once it gets cold.
Hope you really enjoy this and let me know what you think when you try it! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram #gastrawnomica so I can see all your beautiful creations.
