A clean, vegan take on macaroni and cheese that tastes amazingly

similar to the real thing.

(My mother-in-law even approved! ツ)

You will need: 

-1 1/2 carrots (a bunch of baby carrots)

-2 medium potatoes

-1/4 onion

-1/2 c. cashews

-1 box macaroni noodles

-blender

Directions:

  1. 1. Peel potatoes, and chop the onion and carrots (if necessary).

5. Create a seasoning mix to your liking. Be generous with the salt. We used: nutritional yeast, chili powder, steak seasoning, pepper, garlic powder and salt. Be creative-everything’s fine!
