I see a lot of members posting here like mac and cheese. Here are a couple of recipes to try

Sweet potato mac-n-cheese

  • 1 450g package pasta
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and small diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and small diced
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 4 oz (½ package) cream cheese, room temperature
  • Kosher salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup grated mild cheddar

Cook pasta slightly under cooked. Drain, rinse under cold water, pour onto oiled baking sheet and toss with additional oil to prevent sticking.
Preheat oven to 400F. In a large saucepan with a lid, combine the sweet potatoes, carrots, milk, garlic powder and salt. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook until vegetables are soft, 12-15 minutes.
Combine in a blender with the softened cream cheese and blend until smooth. Thin out with additional milk if needed. Season sauce to taste, toss with pasta in a 9 x 13” baking dish.
Top with grated cheese and bake until bubbling and cheese is melted, 12-15 minutes. Serve with a green salad.

Vegan dairy free mac-n-cheese

  • 1 cup yellow potatoes, peeled & diced
  • ½ cup carrots, peeled & diced
  • 1 cup boiled veggie water (from boiling the vegetables in step 2)
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ⅓ cup raw cashews
  • 1 tsp mineral salt (or kosher salt or pink Himalayan sea salt)
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 3 cups dried macaroni
  • Breadcrumb topping
  • Crushed chili flakes
  • Cracked black pepper

Cook the macaroni, drain, and set aside.
Boil the potatoes, carrots, and onions and once cooked, add them to the blender, as well as 1 cup of the water you cooked them in.
Next, add your coconut milk, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, cashews, salt, and garlic powder. Blend it all up until smooth and creamy.
Add your cooked macaroni to an oven-safe dish, and pour the cheese sauce over the noodles.
Top your mac n' cheese with some breadcrumbs, chili flakes, and black pepper.
Stick the whole thing in the oven, and broil on high for 5 to 8 minutes, until the top is nice and crispy.
