    Vegan Macaroni and Cheese


    3 to 3 1/2 cups dry cut pasta (ex: macaroni, penne) (about 10 oz)
    3/4 cup raw cashews (see “nutrition facts” link below for a nut-free version)
    1/2 cup raw brazil nuts
    3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 medium clove garlic
    2 tsp arrowroot powder
    1 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/4 tsp (rounded) dry mustard
    1 cup water
    1 1/2 cups milk of choice (preferably: unsweetened almond or soymilk)
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    For breadcrumb topping:
    3/4 to 1 1/4 cups dry whole-grain breadcrumbs (See “nutritional info” link below, for gluten-free option)
    1/2 to 1 tbsp olive oil
    Couple pinches sea salt

    Vegan Macaroni and Cheese Recipe: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Throw pasta into a deep pot of boiling salted water. While pasta is cooking, blend all sauce ingredients (ingredients 2-11) in a blender or in a deep bowl with an immersion blender. Once pasta is almost tender, fully drain (don’t rinse). Mix noodles with sauce, and immediately pour into a lightly oiled 8 x 12” baking dish. (It will look like there is a lot of runny sauce – it will thicken up, trust the pasta!) Mix breadcrumb toppings in a small bowl, then sprinkle over top of casserole. Cover with foil and bake for 17-18 minutes. Then, remove foil cover and bake another 5-7 minutes or until topping is golden brown and crisped. Don’t overbake or sauce will get too thick. Remove from oven and place vegan macaroni and cheese casserole on a hot plate (rather than on top of oven, since residual heat from oven will continue to thicken the sauce).
