About the Recipe

This is my basic macaroni and cheese recipe.  I say basic, because it's one of my go-to recipes.  If I'm making this as a dinner rather than a sidedish to a larger meal, I will absolutely add broccoli or some sort of greens to go with it.  


If I'm making this as part of a holiday meal, it gets super indulgent with rosemary garlic breadcrumbs and Frenches Fried Onion on top and baked in the oven.


For this recipe to work, you must use high-quality butter like Miyoko's and preferably homemade milk.

Ingredients

Cheesy Sauce

1/3 cup Vegan Butter

1/3 cup Flour

1 tsp Garlic Powder or a few fresh cloves of garlic

1 tsp Onion Powder

3 cups Unsweetened Non-dairy Milk

1 tbsp Vegetable Bouillion

1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast (+/- 1/4 depending on your preference)

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Pepper

Pinch of Nutmeg


Noodles

1 box of Macaroni or spiral noodles

Salt for water


Optional Extras

Broccoli

Peas

Bread Crumbs

French's Fried Onions

Preparation

Step 1

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and noodles according to package instructions.


Step 2

On medium/high heat, melt butter in sauce pan.


Step 3

Add flour to melted butter and stir for 2-3 minutes.


Step 4

Slowly add milk to the mixture, whisking furiously to avoid lumping. When mixture is smooth and a little glossy add in the rest of the ingredients. Now is the time to add a little more garlic or nutritional yeast if you'd like.


Step 5

Stir in pasta.


Step 6 (Optional)

Add broccoli, bread crumbs, and/or fried onions and bake in a baking dish for 25 minutes on 350F or until golden brown on top
