Mac 'n' Cheeseless

Mac 'n' Cheeseless


2.5 cups macaroni
1.5 cups peeled & chopped potatoes
1/3 cup peeled & chopped carrots
1/3 cup onion
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, for sprinkling on top


Soak cashews for at least 2 hours to soften them for blending, then discard water. Boil potatoes, carrots & onion until soft, about 7-8 minutes. Then, remove pot from heat and set aside, without draining. In a separate pot, boil pasta according to package instructions, then strain and return to the pot. Transfer the potatoes, carrots & onion to a high-speed blender, along with about 3/4 cup of the water they were boiled in. Add cashews and remaining ingredients into the blender, then blend until completely smooth. Pour cheeselessly cheesy sauce over the macaroni and combine. Adjust seasoning, if desired. Then, serve with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and enjoy!

I’ve been having a weekly organic veg and fruit box for a few weeks now. I look forward to it (and get embarrassingly excited!!) and love being more creative with my meal choices.
