I only recommend items I use for myself and my family ? * It seems that I have been on a bit of a one pot meal kick lately.. I promise I am not super lazy (ok maybe a little), however what I definitely am is BUSY. I am sure you get it – kids, work, school, house, extracurriculars. So, if I can find a way to free up some time while still maintaining a certain level of meal quality, am I going to go for it. And then do it over and over. Mac and Cheese is such a classic comfort food and perfect at the end of a long day. We don’t use the boxed stuff so it is always made from scratch. I do enjoying using cashew based cheeses, but was wanting to come up with something a tad lighter. This one pot vegan Mac and cheese is still just as rich and creamy without the cashew sauce! For the yummy cheesey flavour, we are using a combination of white miso paste, nutritional yeast (surprise, surprise), yellow mustard, and also white vinegar for a little sharpness. To add a bit of extra richness there is a small amount of vegan butter in the ingredients, this is optional though (I very much prefer it with). Turmeric provides the traditional yellowish colour and doesn’t alter the taste at all. If you don’t have any don’t worry about it! You can make it without, it won’t have the same colour but it will still taste delish. For good measure there are some diced cherry tomatoes tossed in. I don’t know about you but I adore tomato on my grilled cheese and the combo goes nicely here too. Finally, to round everything out, this vegan Mac and cheese is topped with some of my Maple Tempeh Bacon Crumbles. I usually like to make a batch of them ahead of time to use in various recipes throughout the week. You can mix them right into the pot with everything towards the end of cooking if you prefer. I hope you give it a try! If you make it and share on Instagram be sure to tag me @whitney.earl – I would love to see your beautiful recreation!
